Snow storms, cold weather, the Winter Olympics on t.v., and did I mention the daytime temperature in Los Angeles hovering in the 60’s…clear signs that we are definitely in the middle of winter! I stepped out of my office in L.A. yesterday and shivered from the cold 65 degree air hitting me in the face! (I was born and raised in Los Angeles, so any temperature below 70 feels icy to me…)
I do not ski…or I refuse to ski…or I would probably injure myself if I tried to ski again. Last time I went skiing was years ago with best of friend FF in Aspen…it was a comedy indeed…we had an Austrian ski instructor who kept saying to me “Get up…get up out of the snow Coco” and “If you do not go back up on the lift again, you will feel bad about yourself tomorrow.” I spent most of my ski time in a heap of poles and skis on the side of the mountain with 5 year olds swooshing by me with the greatest of ease.
Anyhooooo…just because I don’t ski, doesn’t mean mean I don’t enjoy the mountains during the winter or ski in ski out living. I spent some time last year at FF and CCF’s Bachelor’s Gulch home just outside of Vail…ski in ski out…with a jacuzzi…lots of fireplaces and more. Quite lovely.
Wonder what kind of ski house living room I would rather spend my time in sitting and waiting by the fire watching skiers glide by…a quaint rustic cabin setting or a stunning modern chic mountain home? So I bring you today a THIS OR THAT…featuring a lifestyle maven Aerin Lauder’s modern ski house living room in Aspen and another cozy classic ski lodge living room…you decide?

I think I would be most comfy in Aerin’s modern ski house living room…simple, uncluttered and spectacular views and love the exposed beam ceiling.

Just like you did, I will pick “this” too!
Aerin Laudner’s ski home is fabulous! Love the eclectic look of that one.
Wow, I love this space! I am a big skier (funny since I’ve lived in Laguna Beach my whole life) but my family loves to head up to Tahoe every winter and rent a cabin out for a couple weeks. I would loveee to have a place like this in the mountains…those floor to ceiling windows? I die.
