We are all well versed in the closet of Rumi Neely. The fashion blogging queen has been documenting her daily looks for years now on Fashion Toast and I think it’s safe to say that we’re all…addicted.
Rumi recently opened up her Mid-City Los Angeles bungalow, which she shares with her boyfriend and recently decorated with the help of Homepolish, and it’s just as bohemian cool as you’d expect.
“Half beach bungalow half fluffy minimalism” as Neely puts it, I just love the layers, textures and chilled out vibe. Don’t you?

Cafe Midi is one of my absolute favorite LA restaurants. There’s something for everyone on the vast menu, I love the French-Moroccan home decor shop it’s connected to and the owner/chef, Edouard Moyal, is a real character who puts a big smile on everyone’s face with his gregarious personality.
After eating his broccoli salad complete with apples and basil (sounds odd but trust me, it’s delicious) dozens upon dozens of times, we at LEAF decided it was time to capture him and his recipe on film. It’s a must watch (here) and MUST make! Trust.
