The Art Of Getting Everything

Exposed barnwood beams and reclaimed timber hold this “Western Bohemian” home together. Vibrant interior design brings it to life.

At client-based design studio Jacque Jenkins-Stireman, no two projects are the same. JJS doesn’t have a signature design style, but it does have a signature design approach: “Listen first, design with purpose.”

This fundamental philosophy, which makes for comfortable, livable, long-term properties, established the JJS team as one of the “oldest and freshest” design studios in Jackson Hole. From architectural consulting through interior planning, all the details of a custom-designed Jenkins-Stireman home are carefully thought out.

Jacque Jenkins-Stireman can “envision rooms coming together without blinking an eye.”

“Every single property has a unique ‘tailored’ finish,” says Director of Operations Ashley Cadwalader. “Most of the firm’s work is completely customized. We decided long ago that the traditional showroom approach didn’t work for our business model. Instead, we spend time with our clients, understanding their lifestyles and helping them realize their Mountain West dream.”

If there is one unifying theme in Jenkins-Stireman’s work, it’s juxtaposition. The firm is known for taking two seemingly opposing styles and piecing them together in ways that are at once stylish and innovative. Take Four Pines Cabin #14. This Shooting Star property “exemplifies sophisticated, whimsical design while embracing the Mountain West spirit and the homeowners’ lifestyle,” Jenkins-Stireman says.

West meets Warhol: Accents like the pop-art style cowboy painting blend traditional Western themes with contemporary flare.

The accents, like reclaimed timber and cowboy paintings, “nod to Jackson’s mountain history,” Cadwalader adds, “but the furnishings celebrate the homeowner’s personality.”

Each room pops with color and vibrant patterns. The cowboy painting displayed proudly in the living room is far from traditional Western. Instead, it is a Warhol-esque pop-art piece that at once complements and stands out from the traditional wood-and-stone architecture. Jenkins-Stireman calls the home “Western Bohemian”—fitting for its Bay Area owners, who wanted a home that felt comfortable and livable, but also would have international appeal for prospective renters.

“Both can be challenging to accommodate,” Cadwalader says, but the JJS team thrives in such creative environments.
