Fall is legendary for fly fishing in Jackson Hole. Whether a seasoned angler or a novice, you’ll be dazzled by the scenery as you float on the clear waters of the Snake River along the dramatic Tetons. […]
You will be blown away the next time you step into the Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa, that’s a promise! We recently unveiled a renovated lobby that we are very proud of, and guests are raving about the revamped atmosphere. You have to see it for yourself, but here is a quick introduction to the new look and feel in Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa’s lobby…
The first thing to note in the new lobby is that the design inspiration—we worked with the uber-talented Erin Langan from Seattle-based Susan Marinello Interiors again—is grounded in the beauty and lifestyle associated with the Teton Mountain Range. The history of the alpine experience and the richness of our surrounding mountains were key elements in the lobby re-design.
The team at Susan Marinello Interiors is committed to creating a cohesive marriage between architecture and interiors while respecting our property’s location, sense of place, and natural views. They did a masterful job aligning Jackson Hole’s nature and scenery with the new lobby’s design.
A quiet palette utilizing dramatic wood slabs as “art” make the focus all about the natural surroundings. The wood elements that flank the fireplace are made by Meyer Wells in Seattle, an amazing team of artisans who work with salvaged urban trees. In their words, “these majestic materials embody the power of nature and capture the living story ingrained in every design.”
Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa also wanted to enhance the guest experience by creating another venue to enjoy during their stay, in addition to Spur. The success and popularity of Spur as a gathering place can now extend to the main lobby which has been arranged to provide a variety of seating and places to touch down.
A subtle approach to texture and color speaks to luxury and timeless sophistication on-tap at Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa. The design is meant to be thoughtful and comfortable with a residential aesthetic. The lighting, palette, color, and material selections were all drawn from the alpine wilderness—what visiting Teton Village and Jackson Hole is all about.
A unique characteristic of the Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa lobby, which remains unchanged, is the volume of the lobby, and a focus of the project was to highlight the grandeur and heighth in the lobby. This feature was priority of the design and is a unique attribute in Teton Village. From an ownership side, the focus on enhancing rather than mitigating the three-story high lobby was what initially drew us to Erin’s proposal. The height of our lobby at TML is a unique characteristic that sets us apart from all other Jackson properties. This celebration of height really resonated and spoke to everyone. Again, instead of treating the existing log beams and darkening them, we worked to feature their natural color and darkened the surrounding walls to make what we have pop, and to make our architectural “bones” feel fresh.
We have used the corral board elements as we did in Spur, which is all locally sourced. There are/will be collections on the floors that hark to the spirit of the mountain lodge—with antique mountaineering items and 2 ski walls from Vintage Winter, a man from Denver that collects vintage ski gear.
