Snake River Lodge Residence

Stockton and Shirk was delighted to be called upon to design and furnish the interior of a Snake River Sporting Club’s luxury residence.  The family chose The Sporting Club for a second home, to enjoy the many recreational activities and breathtaking views.  The task was to create a practical, comfortable, luxurious interior that reflected their active lifestyle and personalities. The Texas ranchers requested ample sleeping quarters for family and friends.


The beige, bronze and gray color palette throughout the Kitchen, Great Room and Dining Room harmonize with the outdoor views and stone work.  A combination of textures for upholstery were used, including leather, velvet, wool and Mongolian lamb to create cozy seating arrangements.  A local craftsman created the iron and hickory coffee table and side tables.  The rug and linen drapery fabrics were selected to compliment the French blue-gray antique side boards.


When designing the downstairs bedrooms, Ralph Lauren wool plaids and stripes give a classic equestrian lounge feel.  The master bedroom sable color bed pillows nestle against a creamy alpaca boucle head board.  The Twin bedroom is sporting a red, grey and black hunting theme.


Whether returning from a summer or winter activity, the house provides a warm welcome home feel, inviting all to share stories in a beautiful environment.

Jackson Hole Craftsman

Stockton and Shirk was referred by Sotheby’s International Realty to curate a beautiful Craftsmen style house nestled in Wilson. With Mount Glory prominently featured in the background, we worked with the lovely couple that acquired the home in 2018 to mold the house to their needs.
For these Texas based clients, with four grown children and grand kids on the way, it was particularly important to make use of existing spaces that were not living up to their full potential. Over the course of a year, we transformed what was a three bedroom, three and a half bath house into a five bedroom, four and a half bath family home. With creativity and ingenuity we converted a loft into a quaint bedroom and an open basement into a bedroom suite, office and family room to better suit the new owners’ needs. 
It was imperative that the new furnishings and construction complement, rather than compete with, the Craftsmen style of the home. The owners also requested that the space feel comfortable and homey, not like a museum or brand new build. Custom upholstery and hand made furniture were interspersed with quality case goods, antiques and Western touches to create a curated timeless lodge look. The elevated design and beautiful yet livable pieces are ones the family will continue to enjoy for many years to come.

It’s Transformation Time!

We love a good Before + After, and this living and dining room transformation is one of our favorites.

With a primary residence full of traditional furniture and antiques, these clients wanted to get away from their roots and leave the formality behind on the East Coast. To achieve a breezy mountain aesthetic, we focused on comfort, texture, and relaxed forms. Pattern and color was incorporated enthusiastically, in the form of a handful of luxury fabrics.

A general rule of design: don’t force it! If you know that you won’t use a formal dining room, utilize that space in a way that makes you happy. With grandkids, nieces and nephews, and plenty of out-of-town guests planning trips, we decided to make the dining room, just off of the kitchen, a multi-purpose hang-out zone.


PROGRESS – window seat

Our only design parameter was that this room needed to function as an office. We created a window seat to store all office supplies and files, and introduced a game table to act as a desk when needed. We were able to wire-in reading sconces at the same time that we ditched the baseboard heater and installed cove heating.

The final result is a cozy hang-out and game space, that is the most used room in the house!

Big high-five to Kristen of Bison Custom Cabinetry  for fitting an entire office (including printer!) into the window seat, and to Samantha Livingston Photography for the great shots.



Before + After // Master Bathroom Remodel


We always love making our clients happy in their homes, but there is something extra gratifying about transforming a space that they hate into one that they really love! We cannot say enough kind words about this couple; they have been an absolute dream to work with. Relocating from Indiana to Jackson Hole, they fell in love with this home high on a butte overlooking the valley. Lofty ceiling lines, beautiful wood floors, and amazing light sold them on the house…however, it was clear that a master bathroom remodel was needed.

Oh, hey!

THE PLAN: Our goals for this remodel were:

(1) Create a beautiful and interesting shower

(2) Remove the tub, which was never used

(3) Keep the bathroom window intact, as it had just been installed.



Bye-bye hollywood lights!

Bathroom mid-demo

Despite having a clear plan for each project, inevitably, “remodel on an older home” = surprises. Besides         aesthetics, the homeowners wanted to re-do this bathroom because they could feel a draft under their cabinetry. When the tub decking was removed, it was found that a lot of pests were able to get into this area below. Yuck, but better found now than never, right?! A thorough cleaning of all crawl spaces and all new insulation was required before construction continued.

Once the area was sealed and all new drywall installed, our live edge floor started to take shape. To fill in the space that was previously occupied by the tub, we devised this live edge tile flooring design. The shower footprint was expanded as much as possible, without having to resize the window. That orange mat is floor heating leading from the shower floor out to the new vanity – no cold feet for our cold winter days!

Below you see the foundation of the true GEM of this bathroom remodel. An “interesting” element was the homeowner’s request, and our solution was to introduce a curved shower into the space. A cement curb was built to house the rounded shower glass. There is a reason you only see square showers; it was a real     pickle to get that rounded glass, but man, does it create a beautiful effect!
