It’s no secret that editors are New York’s celebrities. We live for sightings of the arbiters of cool — constantly checking street style blogs like Tommy Ton’s on style.com for a glimpse of the chicest of the chic. Some make us more excited than others, which is the case with former Accessories Director at Marie Claire and now Creative Director at Moda Operandi, Taylor Tomasi-Hill.
TTH has made a name for herself in the industry with her scarlet mane and constant blend of feminine sensibility with harder, more masculine structured pieces. She is a complete original with exceptional taste, and it’s no surprise that Vogue contributor and Moda Operandi founder Lauren Santo Domingo chose to profile her Chelsea apartment.
Both Taylor and her husband are hardcore New Yorkers but their Texas roots are evident in this culture clash of a creatively cultivated apartment.
Tomasi-Hill told Vogue that one of the items she and her husband disagreed on was the farm sink that she cleverly uses as a counter.
Plenty of nick-nacks and odds and ends make up the personality of their space. You can tell that each pieces tells a story.
And then of course there’s her closet… the shoes alone leave you wanting more!
Tomasi-Hill knows that like every great wardrobe, every great apartment needs layering. It needs an eclectic feel — a sensibility all its own. Get the look with some key pieces from The Well Appointed House
