Spring Café on the ground floor.) While Michael worked with David Johnston Architects on the building and with Connect One Design on the rooftop garden, Sabrina—with Michael's uncle, Alex Papachristidis, a celebrated Manhattan interior designer— researched paints, flooring, and eco-friendly furniture for the penthouse. Mixing contemporary and traditional designs with inspira- tion from both the big city and mountains, the Rudins and Papachristidis swathed the home in rich fabrics, like Cowtan & Tout velvet and Schumacher Darya ikat, and midcentury antiques from New York's Duane Modern. The walls remained neutral, painted white or covered in grass papers, to allow the Rudins' emerging art collection, including photo- graphs by Peter Lik and Scott Rudin (no relation), to shine. This New York-meets-Aspen aesthetic can also be found at Michael's latest mixed-use project—Hotel Jerome Residences at The Mill (the, located behind the hotel and comprising two floors of commercial space paired with two more of four spectacular penthouses (from $6 million). The overall design, a collaboration between Aspen's own David Johnston Architects, New York architect Alan Orenbuch, and Papachristidis, introduces a distinctly urban feel into Aspen's residential market. Outside, half of the building's fa ade is a nod to town's architectural history, with sandstone touches and brick- work, while the other half reflects a more contemporary style, with floor-to-ceiling windows. Inside, the apartments emanate a bright, neutral air with white oak flooring and Calacatta Gold marble—a look inspired by the real-life example of Michael and Sabrina's city- meets-mountain-town abode. "The penthouse is our first home together," says Michael. "It's a very special spot. It represents a lot in our lives." Judging by The Mill, it may also represent some of Aspen's residential future. .
