Tommy Hilfiger Corporation was founded by Thomas Jacob Hilfiger, an American fashion designer. He is still the company’s principal designer, supervising the whole creative process and overseeing the design groups. Here are some wonderful houses he owns that are worthwhile to look at:
1. Palm Beach Oceanfront House
Tommy Hilfiger and his wife, Dee Ocleppo Hilfiger, are once again owners in Palm Beach, paying a record $9 million for a newly finished home on the North End. They will call this 244 Fairview Road home base. It is a three-bedroom, 2-story furnished house in so-called ‘turnkey’ condition.
The Bermuda-style house spans 4,970 total square feet, with Eggshell blue shutters adorning the exterior of the two-story spread described as a “perfect modern beauty.” It features three bedrooms (with the option of converting an upstairs great room into a fourth), a modern gourmet kitchen, vaulted ceilings, subtle decor, and a gorgeous backyard with a pool and loggia.
2. Greenwich, Connecticut property
To keep its qualities in Europe as a culture—a process that required many years in partnership with some of the finest design professionals of the business—the Hilfigers meticulously refurbished the property. The Connecticut estate, with 22+ acreage, lies above Round Hill’s crest and even overlooks Long Island Sound and the cityscape of Manhattan.
Inspired by the English and French country houses, the house, with a Ludowici tile roof, is fashioned out of ivy-clad granite and Holland brick. It was originally designed by renowned Architect Greville Rickard in 1939. Architect Andre Tchelistcheff was asked to oversee refurbishment work in the main house and decorator Martyn Lawrence Bullard was asked to brighten up the common rooms.
The objective was to monitor the refurbishment of the ancient terracotta roof, which had to be replaced by new electric wires and to carefully restore the new tiles that were cast in Turkey and fitted one by one at a time.
The property is rich with ornamental characteristics such as beautifully carved millwork, complex plasterwork, decorative paints, wide-board, limestone floors, and fine textile wall coverings that include six-bedroom(s), seven bathrooms, three pulverized rooms, and six fireplaces. The gardens outside, are adorned with stone walls and private hedges, marvelous modern scenery, and 5 types of gardens including a rose-fountain garden, a boxwood knot garden, a water garden, and a koi pond.
And if not enough of all this luxurious landscape there is a pool, tennis court all-weather and huge yard great for Croketball and the like. A four-car garage, a greenhouse, and an old tea house are also available which is now a security pavilion. There is also a guest house with a separate lounge, a kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a garage with two floors. The theatre, gaming room, cave/dining area, and the above-mentioned six bedrooms are also located inside the main home.
The dining area was fitted with 16th and 17th-century Venetian glass, Portofino and Tiffany silverware, and Ming dynasty ceramics blended with Bullard and Di Dee. In the kitchen, the blue-and-white delftware of the 18th century is matched with Chelsea Textiles’ curtains and cushioning and a tapestry that used to belong to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The exterior is a château with Tudor elevations inspired by Normann, but the interior is an English country house with French Gothic elements.
Starting 2021, Tommy Hilfiger is taking the actual win — fashion designer Dee Ocleppo and his wife ended up selling their long-term property in Greenwich, Connecticut.
3. Plaza Hotel Penthouse
Since it was established more than 110 years ago, the Plaza hotel, the iconic 20-story building in Midtown Manhattan, has attracted people and tourists. Tommy Hilfiger and his wife, Dee, have turned the hotel into a modern house far above the streets of the city. For several reasons, the 4-bedroom residence is distinctive not least because of its turret, and Eloise’s creator, Hilary Knight, has been commissioned by the couple to paint a picture of the children’s book character on the walls of the room.
In other words, the penthouse is equally luxurious and art-filled with a large living room with 10-foot ceilings, marble-like wall accents, and three windows open on Juliet balconies, which look down on 5th Avenue and Grand Army Plaza.
The formal dining room has mirrored walls and is directly connected to the abovementioned dome room. The sleek French bistro-style chef’s kitchen is also located on the bottom level and contains black all and marble backpacks all-around a wealthy island in the middle of marble and cherry. The upper level, where there are the master suites and three other guest bedrooms, is reached by a chic iron-lined spiral step.
Each has a particular theme; one is maritime with a ship-shaped chandelier; another has a lavender hue with the matching curtains with tapestry; and another has a tribute to rock and roll, with an aesthetic of black and white, with an oversize, built-in garment and desk. The master suite itself is a luxury, but without a distinct theme, with a deep-soaking bathtub and a separate glass-lined steam bath, a glass-coated private terrace, and an intriguing chandelier hanging from the middle of the ceiling.
Rock and roll photos, an LED mirror TV, and a bar hidden within a wall make space fresh; large quantities of crown moldings and mementos rescued from Ritz Paris make the space vibrant. However, the trendy couple recently sold their stylish apartment of 6,050 square meters at $33.25 million.
4. Miami Mansion
The 10,300-square-foot residence was purchased by Hilfiger and his wife, Dee. Mode Both flagged on a splendid stretch of the beach north of Miami with a home characterized by spectacular occasions, fanciful prosperity, and stunning coups. Wow! could be an understatement in this case. The couple turned to the Los Angeles designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard to make a vigorous and art-friendly abode they imagined.
With bold expressions and the integration of important art in the home, the Hilfigers admired Bullard to create a house that was adapted to the rhythms and colors of Miami. The couple also entrusted the designer with a pristine environment in which their impressive modern art collection, including works by Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat,
The designer began by substituting ubiquitous dark wood panels and travertine expanses with clean white walls and new tile flooring for the cultivation of a breathtaking aura. The center staircase in black marble, which he emphasized in black and white stripes on the kitchen floor, is reclaimed in graphical contrast.
Treue à forme, Bullard was obliged, all used in glamorous vignettes, to create a kaleidoscopic array of colors, materials, and decorations. At the heart of the house, there is the large living room, chaired by Warhol and Basquiat, a monumental painting. Sunshine-yellow polka dots and fire-engine-red strips were paved with floors paved into shiny travertine and marble with chevron patterns, and zip-like Guest rooms were painted in a range of monochrome patterns. Around Caesarstone, the chef’s kitchen includes the 1970s Robert Sonneman chandelier, Aran Cucine cabinet and hood, Miele ovens, and Gaggenau cooktop.
His Cityscape reflected chairs join a similarly spirited table in the dining room based on one of his designs, whilst his master bedroom features a gleaming four-poster. Nevertheless, Bullard never shut at the golden lily, and with a huge throw of lamb’s wool, he accentuated the bed, cascading on a plateau covered with the same material—a tribute to BettyCatroux, Parisian chic’s fabled avatar. And he padded Evans chairs in cherry-red leather, placed them on top of a zigzag carpet of black and creams, and swaddled the room in chain curtained mail.
To achieve this, Bullard has designed a series of luxurious bedrooms that have been designed to arrest colors and patterns—huge yellow dots, red and white sweets, shiny metallic swirls, and maybe most frolic of all, a scratch and sniffing wallpaper of fruits (yes, with smell) in several of the guest baths.
Finally, there is the private office of Tommy who pays homage to the brand Hilfiger with a mosaic of blue and red wall panels with white reveals. Bullard’s red, white and blue work was mounted on one wall by Jean Dubuffet to underline the effect.
