Natural Elegance showcases the award-winning interiors of WRJ Design, headquartered in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and led by Rush Jenkins and Klaus Baer. The firm’s homes are set against the back-drop of dramatic Western landscapes from the Rockies to the Pacific. Their interiors are infused with a unique elegance—one versed in the beauty of the wilderness combined with sophisticated contemporary design. Juxtaposing a warm palette with rugged elements, they create homes that have a deep connection to the natural world just outside the windows. Illustrated with photographs by the masterly William Abranowicz, the book features more than a dozen gloriously sited houses decorated in WRJ’s signature rustic yet refined style.
Rush Jenkins, formerly Director of Design at Sotheby’s New York, and Klaus Baer, formerly head of international production teams for investment banking firms, relocated to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where they established WRJ Design.
William Abranowicz has been a photographer for nearly forty years and his work has appeared in nearly every major publication in the United States, Europe, and Asia. His most recent book is Vendome’s American Originals: Creative Interiors.
Nancy Greystone co-authored Barbara Barry’s Around Beauty and Tim Campbell’s Intentional Beauty.
The work of WRJ Design associates is the subject of a new book, Natural Elegance. All the photographs are by the estimable William Abranowicz, making it easy to compare projects, while the text by Nancy Greystone provides useful information about the dozen luxurious residences.
Wide open vistas of snow capped mountains provide the most enchanting backdrop for Rush Jenkins and Klaus Baer’s decorating style. Together they craft homes that combined the rustic and the refined with contemporary ease.
The Jackson Hole home of designers Rush Jenkins and Klaus Baer is a lesson in insightful curation. The couple, who have lived in picturesque Wyoming for a decade and lead WRJ Design have brought their timeless aesthetic to an array of high-end homes, as seen in their book, Natural Elegance: Luxurious Mountain Living.
