I recently picked up the December issue of House Beautiful, and was intrigued by a piece featuring 12 design visionaries to watch. Number one on the list? Aerin Lauder. I’ve long been pinning images taken from Aerin’s various (and fabulous) homes, but was surprised to learn she’ll be launching her own company, AERIN, next year. Previously, she’s spent almost 20 years working for the cosmetics company that bears her grandmother EstÃ©e’s name.
A quick search and I was rewarded with tons of portfolios that feature her homes in full. Given her meticulous taste and style, I’m curious to see what she comes up with for AERIN, which according to House Beautiful, will feature “a beauty line, a home line, accessories, jewelry, and eyewear.”
The front of her house has been oft photographed, but I hadn’t ever seen this side view, with a look at the old tree and pretty gardens. It’s a charmed life, for sure.
Aerin’s stunning dressing room. So feminine and glam, with lots of gold (check out the Z desk!) and de Gournay wallcovering.
A New York Post article I found on Aerin quoted sources as saying that she intended to be the next Tory Burch, or bigger. Funny then, that this little breakfast nook reminds me of a toned down version of Tory’s own. (Though I like how bright and cheerful both are, I actually prefer the restraint in Aerin’s version!)
White cabinets, a double range, a big eat in island to encourage people to hang around while you cook…yup, pretty close to a dream kitchen!
I love a little masculinity in a study. I wonder if her hubs had the final say with this room?
A leopard couch! I’m proud to say my grandmother owns one too. She’ll be so happy to know she’s in such stylish and fabulous company.
This signed photo of Princess Grace belonged to Aerin’s grandmother. Love that frame it’s in too!
Girl’s got great style. Skinny jeans, a black blazer, a casual blouse and Converse? Perfect. I’m also digging the better view of that gold hardware in the kitchen.
This house slays me. I think the photographer nailed the lighting with the shots too (well played on the photo shoot timing), but everything about it is so gorgeous. Natural elements, neutral colors, ridiculous natural light, and clean lines. I couldn’t ask for more in a vacation home.
So? Are you lusting after La Lauder’s style yet??
