The refined rustic style of WRJ, the preeminent interior design firm in the Mountain West
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 backdrop 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.
"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." —1stDibs/Introspective
"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 combine the rustic and the refined with contemporary ease." —Forbes.com
