The August issue of Harper's Bazaar features an interview and a magnificent spread with Tommy and Dee Hilfiger about their new home in the Plaza Hotel in New York. With his children from his first marriage grown up and a new addition in the family, Tommy decided to sell his $28 million Greenwich, CT, home and move into something smaller. But don't get any ideas . . . the new digs are by no means a "downsize." Every room in the apartment is gorgeously outfitted from head to toe in traditional, on-brand décor that complements the building's Old World style. Here are a few excerpts from the interview:
- Dee, on their vision: "We tried to incorporate as much of the history of the building as we could. From Marilyn Monroe to the Beatles to Jackie O., it makes you think, if these walls could talk . . ."
- Tommy, on their vision: "We had a vision to create an old-world atmosphere complementing the old-world Plaza."
- Tommy, on the move: "We were living in an enormous house in Connecticut. It was way too big. Our children are out and about in the world, and we have only a baby at home now. It’s cozier."
- Dee, on decorating together: "We have bought almost all of the furniture together. We like to go shopping on the weekends. It’s been a real collaboration."
