Out West Week: Inside Pauline Pitt’s Rustic Aspen Getaway

As I enjoy a great week out west in Colorado for spring skiing, I feel the need to share some of my favorite rustic and western interiors that I have recently saved.

I am a sucker for Aspen and the beautiful town as well as the architecture. 

This house and story from AD is certainly worth a look. This traditional log cabin retreat is a beauty. 


Decorator Pauline Pitt shares her Aspen, Colorado, getaway with her real-estate-entrepreneur beau, Jerry Seay, and a host of family. The house was originally designed by architect Theodore K. Guy.


Pitt placed a 1950s elk trophy above the front door; the flooring in the entrance hall is slate.


The main façade.


In the great room, an Earl Biss painting joins a Crystal Farm chandelier, mirrors, and stool,  RH floor lamps, and Ralph Lauren Home sofas.


A wintry view of the property.


The family room features a sectional sofa clad in a Quadrille print and an ottoman embroidered by Frances Munn.


Crystal Farm chandelier hangs above the dining area’s antique table and Windsor chairs, the latter cushioned in a Brunschwig & Fils fabric.


A custom-made bunk bed by A Great Find stands in a children’s guest room.


D. Porthault linens dress the master suite’s bed, which is flanked by Bowron sheepskin rugs placed atop a Nourisoncarpet.


A woven-raffia bed anchors a guest room; the embroidered ottoman was made by Pitt’s mother, Frances Munn Baker.


The kitchen is outfitted with painted cabinetry and a granite-top island; the flooring is heart pine.


A tribal-style rug is spread out in the master bath.


Antlers accent the office.

Is this house not a beauty?
