little_nell_faceliftHolly Hunt’s take on ‘Aspen Modern’ for The Little Nell —Jenn Weed
Twenty-five years ago we all looked better, right? The Little Nell resort in Aspen, Colorado looked in the mirror and did what any self-respecting icon would do: got a makeover. Following an $18-million renovation of the guest rooms and living room in 2009, this year, The Little Nell’s sweet VIP suites get a $4-million face lift. Holly Hunt, arbiter of modern luxe in home decor, is making Aspen’s only five-star, five-diamond, ski-in, ski-out property properly mod. Say au revoir to antlers, logs and country couture and bonjour to sculptural spaces laden with sleek shapes, rich textures, and smart, environmentally conscientious updates. Barn door closets, stone fireplaces, and custom leather furniture take their cues from the famous mountains beyond to make what Hunt calls “Aspen-modern.” Stay three or more nights in a VIP suite this winter and you’ll score a complimentary all-day private ski lesson or a guide for a day.
