Chic Ski House
11 . 28 . 11
It’s been 60+ degrees in New York for what seems like a week. I’m not complaining but that means some of you might have to travel farther afield for some snow and skiing. I’ve never been to Aspen and I haven’t been on skis in years but after seeing Aerin Lauder’s home in the snowy mountains, I might just have to book a trip out West. Usually weekend ski houses seem to follow a more is more theme of plaid, plaid and plaid which is a classic look but I am liking the cleaner lined pared down aesthetic of this house. Interior designer Daniel Romualdez helped out with the decor which features a lot of wood that references the trees outside. Looks like the perfect place to warm up after a day on the slopes. Speaking of, I wonder how big the bunny slope is in Aspen.

Absolutely love the town of Aspen, but beware of the mountain. Ajax is really tough even for intermediates. Nearby Snowmass has a better selection of slopes for all skills. However, Aspen is amazing and worth a visit even if you never ski–great shopping, eating and especially people watching!
I’ve worked in Telluride, somewhat different but if skiing or celebrity spotting is your thing, then it’s pretty good.
I’m surprised by the absence of strong color by Mr Romualdez–variety indeed. And Miss Lauder looks so Dr Zhivago in the hat. Love it.
So incredibly chic!
That’s how to live in a ski house!
this is our kind of style!
love this post! Thanks for inspiring!
