Fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and his wife, Dee Ocleppo, are selling their vibrant Miami mansion, offering us a glimpse around their stunningly designed home.
The 14,075-square-foot estate sits on Florida's ultra-exclusive Golden Beach shoreline, and comes with 100 feet of secluded beach frontage.
On the market for £20.6 million (opens in new tab), the sprawling mansion comes with its own private beach and enviable pool areas, while inside there are seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, four powder loos, a home cinema, cool office, home bar, gym, dazzling living and dining areas and two guest apartments that can easily accommodate a large family or frequent houseguests.

The interiors are just what you’d expect from the fashion mogul, who hired interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard (opens in new tab) to create a polychrome palace for the Hilfigers' vibrant art collection.
When the power couple bought the property in 2013, they wanted the property to house – and showcase – their impressive modern art collection. Size was crucial, as the couple coveted space for works from their extensive art collection that had long been held in storage.
Their Connecticut is very 'country', with lots of taxidermy, and their place in Mustique has a more British Colonial vibe, so they wanted somewhere to be able to showcase the colourful large-scale artworks that didn't make sense elsewhere, conceptually or size-wise.

The Hillfigers felt inspired by Martyn Lawrence Bullard's interiors for Elton John's L.A. home, and asked him to create an interior as part art gallery and part 1960s–'70s disco madness.
The couple asked Bullard to design the property's interiors to match the colour schemes of some of their Pop Art collection. Their trove of Pop and post-Pop treasures include pieces by Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, and others.

The interior designer started by replacing dark-wood paneling and expanses of travertine with clean white walls and new flooring of white-glass tiles, creating a blank canvas for the artworks to shine.
The double-height entrance features a striking black marble staircase, adorned with a 23-foot custom chandelier, made from hundreds of hand-blown pieces of glass.

There's also a lift.
Dee asked that everything in this house be 'shagadelic or groovy'. Bullard obliged with a kaleidoscopic array of colours, materials, and furnishings, all deployed in vignettes that scream glamour. Each room in the house features wild, funky and oversized pattern, wallpaper and artwork.

The dining room features mirrored Cityscape chairs by American furniture designer Paul Evans, upholstered by Bullard in cherry-red leather, all set atop a black-and-cream zigzag carpet.
The graphic rug in the dining room continues the flooring theme from the kitchen and breakfast area, which features a bold, black and white striped floor and matching kitchen island.
Martyn Lawrence Bullard gave the rest of the home more colour, pouring a palette of orange and purple into the living room, and giving it a reflective ceiling.
Bullard extrapolated vivid hues of the Hilfigers' art and translated them into a hair-on-hide carpet featuring lavish swirls. Bullard also commissioned re-editions of classic sofas by Vladimir Kagan and side tables by Willy Rizzo.

Meanwhile, Hilfiger’s home office (opens in new tab) pays tribute to the Hilfiger brand, upholstered in his trademark red-and-blue hues. To underscore the effect, Bullard mounted a red, white, and blue work by Jean Dubuffet on one of the walls.

Dee Hilfiger's powder room leads through to the master bedroom, with sea views from the modern bath.
With seven children between them, the Hilfigers asked Bullard to create a series of luxe bedrooms in arresting colours and patterns.
Bedrooms are clad in giant yellow dots, red-and-white candy stripes, shimmering metallic swirls, and bold blue.
