Not all of us can casually jet off to Aspen for the weekend (okay, so we're jealous). Heck, plenty of us don’t even know how to ski! But, we’re not letting a few, minor details stop us from living out our ultimate winter getaway at home. Really, why wouldn't you want to bring the ski lodge to your own abode — no slopes or snow required? We’re talking customary deer decor (that won’t creep you out), whimsy, firefly light strands, and a rustic-meets-modern rocking chair that’ll knock grandpa’s socks off.
It’s all in the details — you know, those cozy accoutrements that make coming back to the cabin after a day of
black diamonds epic wipeouts that much more relaxing. Plush textures, warm lighting, and wooden everything help to recreate that outdoorsy, bundled-up setting within your space. Yes, even in a teensy-tiny studio apartment. After all, what’s more fun than microwaving s’mores and eating them in front of your bricked-in fireplace? Okay, maybe the real thing, but, hey, baby steps.

We'll be plopping onto one of these poufs after a long day of work — no asking us twice.

If you opt to go barefoot, at least this shaggy rug will help keep your toes warm.

The perfect coffee mug. We think Rory and Lorelai would approve, too.
