Taylor Tomasi Hill, my number one fashion idol (one of these days I’ll do a countdown, but it may take me a while as Clemence Poesy and Rachel Bilson fight one another, Gladiators-style), has had her New York home profiled by Vogue. (Do you see now why she is my numéro uno?) There is absolutely nothing about her home that I don’t like – I’ve spent a while gazing at these photographs and hoping that, right before the photographer came ’round, she bundled all of her excess stuff into black sacks and stuffed them under her four-poster.

Come on; where are Saturday’s papers, unread on Thursday and strewn all over the coffee table? Where are those four cups she kept meaning to put in the dishwasher and accidentally left beside the armchair? Where are the promotional leaflets that fell out of this month’s stack of magazines and the notice from her dry-cleaning company of that special offer they’re running this Friday? Where are her keys? Her glasses? Her YSL lipstick that she lost three weeks ago and keeps finding beside the TV before totally forgetting about it again? Seriously! This can’t just be me!

It’s images like these - taxidermied chicks an’ all – that make me want to get rid of all of my belongings and start afresh, with whitewashed walls and very little else. Sigh. Click through the photographs to see more, and prepare to get a serious case of life envy.
