Aspen, CO

We were fortunate enough to spend the week with our dear friends in Aspen skiing, hosted by my husband’s Aunt Christine (endearingly called “Kiki” by the family) – if there is any destination to be considered for “Luxury Livingness,” it’s Aspen! I had never been and it was incredibly inspiring in terms of luxury residential real estate, with the cabin meets Southwest-style of interiors everywhere.

Obviously, it is a well-known skiing destination, but beyond that, the little town of Aspen is absolutely adorable with shops and restaurants amongst the snow. There is also a prominent art scene, and Kiki founded a charity called Les Dames d’Aspen, that benefits such arts – theatre, jazz, ballet, and art scholarships for students. Kiki also took us to also took us to The Caribou Club, which was a fun spot to hang for the night and has the homey feel of a cabin, with chalet-inspired interiors:

One of the last highlights of the week, was the airport in Aspen, set in the center of two mountain peeks. I went up one afternoon after skiing with my friend Sarah, in a little plane on a runway lined with big private jets, it was unbelievable! It was one of the most incredible experiences of a lifetime flying amongst the snowy mountains. For fun: Youtube- Landing in Aspen Airport.
