Tommy Hilfiger’s pre-war American-Countryside home looks like a French Chateau on
the outside with climbing ivy and stunning boxwood gardens. But on the inside, it’s a mix of styles; English-Country, French Gothic, and signature Hilfiger. The original owners built the home to capitalize on striking views of the New York City Skyline and Long Island Sound. While the view is still just as impressive as it was in 1939, the changes on the inside of the estate are worth a closer look.
For instance, we love how the couple bought their passion for old things into the house. Both Tommy and Dee Hilfiger are fans of vintage fashion. Tommy’s style influences include the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and Dee has an impressive vintage wardrobe, which we talked about before over here. With over 17,000 square feet, nine bedrooms, and 12 bathrooms, the opportunity was there to fill in the gaps with many lovely things. So, it’s no surprise then they filled the rooms with beautiful antiques and vintage furniture.
Finally, of note, even though the home is massive, the rooms visibly interconnect because of layers of multiple textures, patterns, and vibrant jewel-toned colors such as red Paisley, midnight blue, and florals. Look for the vibrant jewel tones to be trending soon, according to the trend experts.

There are a few decorative details we think could be replicated in anyone’s home. For example, the eye-catching vignette created by a beautiful blue settee framed by old antler ears.
Vintage blue and white China are reminiscent of the blue and white stripe dress shirts kept in Tommy Hilfiger’s closet in his Connecticut home.
