We’ll say this for Tommy Hilfiger. The famed fashion designer doesn’t take half-measures.
His Golden Beach, FL, home on the market for $29 million is a fully over-the-top ode to color, texture, and pop art.
Even without the eye-popping interior, the home, located just north of Miami, grabbed our attention. It’s 14,000 square feet of exclusive beachfront real estate complete with 100 feet of ocean frontage, lush landscape, and an infinity pool.
Hilfiger and his wife, Dee, picked up the 2007 contemporary to house their art collection, and secured Los Angeles interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard to complete the look. The result is a profusion of gorgeous graphic prints, ’70s-era furnishings, and bold, bright colors from floor to ceiling.
The designer decor caught the attention of Architectural Digest, which featured a spread in 2014. As AD so eloquently put it, “‘Wow!’ might be an understatement.”
But you don’t have to be a world-famous fashion mogul with your own celebrity designer to re-create elements of Hilfiger’s house. With a tight budget, we found some fab, fun home decor inspired by the look of the home that you can acquire for much, much less.
So … let’s go shopping!
Paging Austin Powers
The shagadelic purple-and-red carpet in the wild living room echoes the brightly hued pillows on the sofa. While we’re sadly unable to afford works by Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, we can certainly snag a fun pop art–inspired pillow or two, like this periwinkle blue faux fur number from Target for $21.99. We’re also taken by the doggie sculpture on the coffee table, which you can adopt for your home, available at Jonathan Adler for $138.
Mellow yellows and fun florals
While we’d love to spend a night in this guest bedroom, the bright color scheme would undoubtably keep us awake. Instead of tossing and turning, we’ve found a great compromise.
We absolutely love the Warhol floral print over the bed, so why not get some yellow-tinged flower-print bedding from Marimekko for a similarly colorful vibe? It’s only $159 for a queen duvet set.
A theater bedecked in red is a classic look that’ll never go out of style. To get the retro rouge furniture, we recommend some upholstered armchairs of your own in a rosy hue. We think these ones—priced at $200.99 each—are perfect seats for munching on popcorn while you watch a flick.
Light the way
The right light is a must for a dynamic white-and-black kitchen filled with brand-name appliances. The hanging light in the photo is from the 1970s.
Rather than scour vintage shops, we found a chrome eight-bulb pendant light that has a similar vibe and can serve as an artsy conversation piece. At just a little over $300, it’s a bargain to boot.
The perfect pendant
The red and blue blocks of color in the office truly rock, but our eye was drawn upward to the light. We found a similar Mid-Century Modern vibe with a pendant lamp from Ikea for only $39.29.
A supreme shag rug
This blue-hued sitting room with dizzying wallpaper patterns is calmed by a few key textural touches, like the white shag rug. We found a similar one on sale for just $31.99.
Wild for wallpaper
This bathroom is bananas! While this might not be our first choice for a powder room, the yellow fruit print adds a fun and tropical flair to the small space.
With bananas on the brain, we tracked down a similar fruit-based wallpaper on Etsy, starting at $37. Bonus? It’s removable wallpaper, so it’ll work for renters, too.
Step into the fire
Design extends outdoors, where you can ponder the elegant curves of a Keith Haring sculpture along with the ocean. While we can’t copy the view, we do love the idea of a fire pit. Here’s one with a contemporary look we found for less than $1,000. Hey, you gotta splurge somewhere!
