Haute Secrets: Kristin Dittmar of Residences Viceroy Snowmass

Viceroy Snowmass Residence

When the Viceroy Snowmass needed a mountain chic touch for its unique four-bedroom units—different from its Jean Michel-Gathy-designed rooms and residences—the property brought in local Aspen interior designer Kristin Dittmar for the job. The two four-bedroom, 2,300-square foot residences combine sleek, designer details with cozy, alpine living plus the amenity of high-end Viceroy standards. Haute living indeed.

What is your inspiration for the Residences Viceroy Snowmass?

The beautiful mountain environment that here in Aspen/Snowmass always inspires me. To channel the beauty of the outdoor environment to the Residences, I used different woods, metal and fabrics to design a luxe, but comfortable, space.

How did you approach this differently than you would a traditional home?

Since the Residences are high-end condos, I was able to use a lot of the same manufacturers. But, I had to make some changes for the Viceroy standards.
Talk about some of the signature touches. For example, the “jacks” that are seen in the units.
I thought the “jacks” would be perfect as fun and playful book ends.  Another favorite touch is the chandelier, which brings a sense of sophistication to the design.  I also really like how the mirror opens up the space.
What’s your favorite part of the redesign?
I love the living room. I would live to cuddle up in that room to watch a movie or read a book on a snowy night.  Also–as a woman–I love the large mirror. It always helps to have a big mirror when you’re getting ready for dinner.
What other projects are you currently working on?
I’m going to be helping the Viceroy with some additional units. Outside of that, and I have several residential clients in Aspen/Snowmass and an exciting project in Los Angeles.
And finally, what’s one home item you can’t live without?

Definitely my comfy bed. It’s topped with soft white linens and a cozy fur blanket. A good night’s sleep is an absolute must for me.
