Aerin Lauder, the granddaughter of Estée Lauder and founder of her own luxury brand Aerin, invariably begins her day early. And especially so when enjoying time at her family’s vacation home in Aspen, Colorado.
Mornings in Aspen typically include coffee, a table set for breakfast, and a trip to Paradise Bakery to fill the table with breakfast goodies. The family friendly area was chosen by Lauder and her husband in 2000 after searching in other Northwestern states.
She is also lucky enough to have family with property near hers.
While the atmosphere of Aspen, Colorado is relaxed and casual, there are certainly luxuries to be had. Lauder mentions a few, such as indulging in a spa treatment at the St. Regis hotel, enjoying a truffle cheese fondue at La Crêperie du Village, and drinking sake at Matsuhisa.
There are also natural luxuries like the freedom of hiking or biking beautiful trails, many with breathtaking views of the mountains. Lauder certainly paints a beautiful picture.
