November Book of the Month // Assouline Aspen Style

What began as a small mining camp during the Colorado Silver Boom in the late nineteenth century has since become the preferred state side mountain getaway of the world’s elite. Treasured for what’s above ground rather than below, Aspen, Colorado has a storied history almost as dense as the directory of A-listers who have adopted the jewel of Pitkin County as their second home, or who have settled in its slopes indefinitely.

Penned by Aerin Lauder and published by our favourite Assouline publishing house this inspiring and indulgent coffee table book, Aspen Style, shares an insight into private homes, hotels and hotspots in Aspen. The resort has long drawn an eclectic and wide-ranging crowd. With an introduction from longtime resident and author Aerin Lauder, Aspen celebrates and pays homage to the stark glamour, the working-class history, and the romance of the virtually untouched landscape that gives the town the unique charisma that continues to draw new devotees with each season.

Exploring the rustic-chic atmosphere of the Hotel Jerome, the architectural excellence of Herbert Bayer’s restored Wheeler Opera House, and local culture found at Schlomo’s Deli & Grill, to name a few, this deluxe volume is brought to life with stunning current and historical imagery capturing the prodigious evolution of this mountain town over the last century.

Should you need an alpine pick-me-up this book will do everything in its power to have you reaching for your laptop looking to book your next mountain adventure.

In fact, we might use this opportunity to tell you that Nicky’s private, fully catered and fully staffed Chalet (which sleeps 12) in Les Gets in the French Alps is available for exclusive rental this winter season. Just click on this link to view the Ferme de Moudon dedicated website.
