Aerin Lauder's Aspen Retreat

Vogue

While I may dream of beach houses in summer, right now I'm all about snowy ski vacations. I'm picturing a cozy mountain top retreat. In fact, the picture in my head looks a lot like Aerin Lauder's Aspen ski lodge!

Her home in Aspen has everything I'd want mine to have: beautiful views, simply but tastefully decorated with lots of furry throws and chairs to sink into with a good book at the end of the day, a good Scotch within reach. There's even a game room!

To bring a little of this look into your home:


  • Have a great view? Treat it like a piece of art: leave the windows and walls bare and let Mother Nature put on a great performance.
  • An abundance of throws in natural shades of brown and beige are great for warding off winter's chill. Even if you forego the furry route, pick ones with texture and heft.
  • Stick to a neutral palette: brown, beige, black, cream, winter white evoke winter's color scheme.
  • Slipcover your couches in white denim, pile books on the table, puncutate with sprays of branches.
  • Classic white sheets, towels and bathrobes evoke luxury.
