T.H.


  

Yes, those are my initials, but I’m talking about another T.H.  Tommy Hilfiger.  

I’ve never thought much about this brand, despite the fact that its logo could often double as a monogram.

However, last week while running errands in Georgetown, I found myself in front of the store’s M Street window

drooling over several ensembles.  Once inside, things got even better.  Not only did I find myself a pair of wool short

shorts, a petal pink silk top with gold beading and some über flattering leggings with ruching at the ankles, but the

dressing area had such a warm and eclectic vibe that I documented the scheme for future reference.  The perfect blend

of traditional and modern, its edgy “town and country” look could be translated beautifully into a twenty-something’s

bachelor pad or a townhouse on P Street.  Chic duds and inspiration in my pocket – now that’s a successful pit stop!

 I know I’m always writing about how not preppy I am, but the Jeep

Wagonmaster (aka “woody”) is truly my favorite vehicle of all time.  Maybe

Tommy Hilfiger will loan me this one with the signature “H” on the door.

The dressing hall with black painted millwork, ebonized floors and purple/grey walls.  The

pendants, artwork and Oriental runner add a balancing punch of warmth and color to the space.

Inside the dressing room.  The leather chair and gold mirror and sconces

help create a sexy little space that’s both masculine and feminine.

I love the contrast of this tall, traditional chest of drawers against the room’s

bold, unusual colors.  That’s what I think of as modern today – the unexpected.

  1. Hi Tricia, I tried to send an email to your business but it was rejected as spam several times (even when I changed the subject, removed my digital signature etc.)…so here it is:
    I just rebranded my business and I would appreciate it if you delete Brillante Home Decor from your blogs list and add instead Brillante Interiors with the link: http://brillanteinteriors.blogspot.com
    Thanks for your support. By the way I admit I never visited your website, I truly love your style, use of colors and unexpected touches. Extraordinary.
