Beauty at Home
 
Aerin Lauder
Friday, January 24, 12:30 p.m.

In her first ever book, style icon Aerin Lauder reveals what it means to live beautifully. Within the pages of BEAUTY AT HOME, Aerin opens the doors to her Manhattan residence, Hamptons home, and Madison Avenue office, showing her unparalleled approach to style. Inspiring photographs by celebrated photographer Simon Upton capture Aerin’s world in stunning detail, illustrating the refined aesthetic that suffuses all of the spaces she designs. Aerin describes the décor choices made to suit her family living in New York City, the way she conceived her company office to encourage creativity, and how she preserved the grace of her grandmother Estée’s treasured Hamptons home—while making it even more inviting for her family and guests. Whether she’s dressing a dinner table with zebra-patterned linens for a special occasion or creating an everyday sanctuary in her mostly white bedroom, Aerin proves that comfort and elegance make a wonderful match.
