Mountain retreat blends rustic and Scandi elements in Wyoming


This rustic-modern mountain retreat was designed by Carney Logan Burke Architects, along with custom home builders On Site Management, located in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The exterior facade showcases a stunning combination of reclaimed barnwood and natural stone with gabled roofs. This mixture reflects  a cool, neutral palette. The eaves are cantilevered, which helps to protect from the harsh elements. Simultaneously, this helps to create magnificent, unobstructed vistas of the surrounding rugged landscape.


Inside this 6,200 square foot dwelling, the living room offers spectacular views through expansive floor-to-ceiling windows. A stone clad fireplace, a focal point to the room, consists of Chief Cliff gray stone from Montana. The stone has been tumbled to create a softness to the edges. This same stone was also applied to the exterior facade of this mountain retreat. This is one of several material elements applied to the home that helps with creating a continuity throughout.


What We Love: This mountain retreat reflects the perfect balance of minimalist and contemporary with a touch of rustic. The natural design elements work in harmony with the contemporary architectural design. Loving the grand and elegant entryway, with soaring, double volume ceilings, walls of glass and the dramatic steel and wood staircase.

Readers, are you a fan of mountain homes or do you prefer beach house style? If you could live is a mountain, desert or beach home, which one would you chose?


The contemporary interiors pays homage to the homeowners’ Swedish roots, reflecting clean lines and a minimalist palette.

The architects creating outdoor living spaces that can be utilized throughout the year. This includes a fire pit and hot tub. This is meant to encourage the family to spend time outdoors, even during the colder months.


This picture perfect home is located in the Shooting Star subdivision, where the architects had to work with strict building and zoning guidelines. The gabled roof was in keeping with the vernacular architecture. Its an iconic design feature that is symbolic of home for those living in the west.
