‘Living the life you dream about’ includes having a home that reflects who you are, what you love, and how you live. This is why I find my At Home In New York column to be such an important series on the blog. It’s been a while since I’ve done an ‘At Home’ post, so I’m happy to get back to them, starting with a favorite tour of the Chelsea residence that Moda Operandi’s artistic director, Taylor Tomasi Hill, shares with her high-school sweetheart turned husband, Chase.
Known for her vivid red hair and head-turning street-style, Taylor shares the same philosophy on decorating as the way she dresses. “A little bit of everything,” is her approach. “Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t, but that’s what makes it fun. I just try again.”
Using white walls as a backdrop throughout most of the sunny apartment, Taylor went for a bold statement in her entry, with a tie-dye effect wallpaper by Eskayel from Studio Four. “I am obsessed with texture,” says Hill, “I can’t manage to stay away from color.” Texture and color are incorporated into every room with plenty of plants, textiles, and accessories.
A Texas native, Taylor is completely comfortable in the kitchen — so long as her favorite hot sauce, Marie Sharp’s, pictured on the shelf above her, is within close reach. Hill and her husband have it shipped to them once a month.
“I think this picture is very Arthur Elgort because it is about the marriage between real life and fantasy,” Taylor shares about the photographer of the image hanging above their master bed.
When asked what her closet might reveal about her, Taylor shares, “I am obsessed with harnesses, and I love vintage jewelry.” She concludes, “I am not sure what that reveals about my personality, but I’d be glad to hear a professional option.”
