Tommy and Dee Hilfiger show off their flair for fashion and decor in their new apartment at the Plaza in New York.
Perhaps it's only fitting that the Hilfigers' new home is perched on one of the highest floors of one of New York's most iconic landmarks, the Plaza Hotel.
"We tried to incorporate as much of the history of the building as we could," says Tommy Hilfiger's wife Dee of the luxurious two-floor condo they bought in 2008 and the hotel's roster of storied guests. "From Marilyn Monroe to the Beatles to Jackie O., it makes you think, if these walls could talk," she muses about the hotel and residence at the corner of Central Park South and Fifth Avenue.
Playing to his forte of re-creating the past, Tommy elaborates on his apartment's decor: "We had a vision to create an old-world atmosphere complementing the old-world Plaza." And they did just that, with a wink, of course

Following a gut renovation, the grandiose, European-influenced apartment has a cozy feel. "We have bought almost all of the furniture together," says Dee. "We like to go shopping on the weekends. It's been a real collaboration."

Andy Warhol's portraits of Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor hold court in the living room, while a jovial Mickey Mouse hangs in the guest bedroom and Marilyn Monroe graces the second-floor hallway. They have more than 20 pieces of his work in total, as well as a Jean-Michel Basquiat in the entry. But Tommy isn't done yet. Fittingly, he has had his eye on a Jasper Johns American-ﬂag painting.
