house guest: balancing act.

I always thought I might like to go hiking in Yellowstone, maybe try to scale some of the more forgiving peaks between scoping out the geysers and wildlife. But then I saw 127 Hours; so, now, I'm not so sure. As beautiful as Wyoming is, I’m happy to direct my sightseeing wanderlust to something indoors—with a little more air conditioning and a little less chance of having to perform an impromptu amputation—and this house is the perfect chance to do just that. With architecture by Carney Logan Burke and interiors by Magni Design, this Jackson Hole residence is a natural wonder all its own. In the designer’s own words: “This is not your typical Western antler-chandelier kind of house. You have to take East Coast sensibility, translate it into a ranch environment and overlay it all with a European aesthetic to achieve the high level of sophistication.”
