Inside Tommy Hilfiger’s Miami Home

The name Tommy Hilfiger has become synonymous with an aesthetic of classic all-American style—clean-cut sportswear in a palette of red, white and blue that wouldn’t look out of place in a private New England boarding school. But for the designer’s new home with his wife Dee, located on a white sand beach just off south Florida’s Atlantic coast in Golden Beach, Miami, all-American prep is eschewed for a ’60s and ’70s disco-pop motif, replete with chain-mail curtains, kaleidoscopic patterned walls, flashing neon lights, a glittering disco ball, and an impressive museum-worthy collection of modern art.
“We wanted a home on the beach where we could escape, and there is no place like Miami to have fun!” says Hilfiger. “Miami is a major centre for art and culture, and Dee and I have always been drawn to the amazing energy of the city. Having a home in Miami let us have more fun with the design; we played with local flavour to make this home very unique. It’s groovy, mod and contemporary, and the best place to spend time as a family.”
To give the house the “very fun and psychedelic” vibe they were after, the Hilfigers turned to Los Angeles-based interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, known for his work with celebrity clientele such as Eva Mendes, Edward Norton, and Sir Elton John.
“This project was wonderfully unique because Tommy and Dee wanted to have fun with the decorating,” says Bullard. “This house shows a different side to Tommy and explores his love of modern art and design. It shows the ever-evolving mind of a true fashion designer and it was my greatest pleasure to help him express that in the home.”
The 14,079sqft estate also plays home to the couple’s contemporary art collection that includes works by icons such as Warhol, Keith Haring and Damien Hirst, among others. The art itself, along with the vibrant energy of Miami, served as the main influence for the interior decoration of the house. The glossy white mansion, which was built in 2007, in an art deco-inspired style, serves as the perfect gallery-like backdrop to highlight the Hilfigers’ collection of vibrant artworks. Even outside on the poolside terrace, Keith Haring’s Acrobats adds a splash of colour to the tranquil setting.
“This home is partly an art gallery, so my personal collection played a big role in the design process,” Hilfiger says. “Each room features at least one iconic piece of art that informs the design of the entire room.”
