House of the Day: A Modern Slant on Aspen's Slopes

We've never really seen a home in Aspen, Colo., that we didn't like but this one stands out from the pack.

Though most Aspen mountain homes seem to emulate either cozy Swiss chalets or rustic Western ranches, this edgy, zen-contemporary beauty bucks the trend with its airy, modern design that's more New York loft than Aspen lodge.

The $19.5 million property, nestled on a sunny mesa within the private Starwood gated community, features eight bedrooms and five bathrooms spread across 10,148 square feet. The home boasts gorgeous open living space illuminated by ample sunlight, and with soaring ceilings, cutting-edge decor and a melange of vibrant colors throughout. We particularly love the intricate, branch-like brass chandeliers in the living room and the home's eclectic vintage furnishings.

The home also features a backyard pool and hot tub with mountain views, and is situated above a protected meadow.

Joshua & Co. of Aspen has the listing.
