Designer’s Choice

Jackson, WY


This 3,200-square-foot midcentury bungalow in downtown Jackson Hole, WY, neighborhood bordering the 25,000-acre wildlands of the National Elk Refuge was remodeled by WRJ’s own Rush Jenkins and Klaus Baer as their personal home. Early demolition work revealed the prize of a historic log cabin beneath vinyl siding that, reimagined as the primary suite, balanced regional lore with thoughtful modernity.

“Personal meaning is first and foremost in what we choose to display.”

-Rush Jenkins, as quoted in Mountain Living magazine

Antiques, collectibles, and found objects layer storytelling with comfort and elegance.

“This kitchen was a bit of an experiment for us, but we love it,” says Klaus Baer of the culinary space where lacquered cabinets are the modern foundation for treasured art rich in family history.
