Should I draw from a taxable account in order to fund living expenses to completely maximize some of my retirement accounts?

I am currently 30 years old. I am contributing $11K a year to my Roth 401(k), and am maxing out my ESPP. Would it make sense to withdraw about $12.5K a year from my taxable account (inheritance) in order to cover my expenses as I max out my Roth 401(k) and fully fund a Roth IRA.

All else being equal, yes, I think that is a good plan.  The only downside would be if you drain your taxable account to a level where you don't have access to funds needed in an "emergency".  I would not want you to pay any 10% penalties or have to do a 401k loan.
