Before we get to the fact that, "If it's not shagadelic or groovy, it's not coming into this house," were the main instructions given to this home's interior decorator, let's try to at least be fair.
So...there are good and bad things to say about American designer Tommy Hilfiger and his wife Dee's Miami home. We'll start positive: for starters, the exterior of the 14,000-square foot modern home is dope, with gorgeous palm trees and a tranquil pool.
As big fans of Pop and Post-pop Art, the Hilfigers have amassed an impressive collection that they proudly display throughout their home. There are paintings, sculptures, and photographs by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Damien Hirst, Keith Haring, Tracey Emin, Jean Dubuffet, Bert Stern, Andy Warhol, and various others in every room, which would be awesome...if it weren't for everything else.
According to Daily Mail, Dee Hilfiger gave the home's designer, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, very unfortunate directions: "If it's not shagadelic or groovy, it's not coming into this house." The result is a complete eyesore from ceiling to floor in just about every room. Tommy Hilfiger's signature Americana motifs and stripes of red, white, and blue are painfully overused (especially in his office, above). In addition, shag carpets, reflective surfaces, furs, and other unappealing textures make this look like Austin Powers vomited and immediately bounced about 50 years ago.
