In 2008, Chicago designer and Aspen resident Holly Hunt and her team began working with The Little Nell to capture the new aesthetic of Aspen.

The ambience of this world-famous restaurant flows from the hotel’s Living Room, as it might in a personal home. It’s a feast here for all the senses. A dramatic glass wall displays some of the wines from our spectacular cellar, and within the flow of the room are two smaller, more private spaces.

Two ideas informed this re-design: sense of place, and uniqueness. Uncluttered window spaces invite Aspen inside. And a collection of design and art originals is set against whites, blues and chocolates, and different hues of stone and metal. For example, Mark Albrecht Bar Stools, a Tristan Auer Mystere Coffee Table, and Gem Table by Chai Ming Studios.
