Rumi Neely was one of the first blogs we discovered and became regular readers of. We also attribute her blog, Fashion Toast, to one of the reasons we decided to start our own blog. We saw fashion and photography come together in such a new, beautifully creative way and it made us really want something like that of our own. When we saw that Rumi was revealing her home makeover project, we couldn’t help but compulsively follow along. She worked with the Homepolish team in LA, LA Creative Director Orlando and Homepolish designer Amy, to give her space a fresh, updated look.
We were actually a bit surprised at how bright and cheery her place was. I envisioned it more black than white, based on her wardrobe. Regardless, it’s a stunning space that Rumi calls “half beach bungalow half fluffy minimalism.” Natural wood, clean whites, and pops of green (as you know, plant life is one of my home essentials) make the space so dreamy, yet everything is simple enough that it’s an easy aesthetic to recreate. Her paint color is similar to mine, so I will definitely be using these rooms as inspiration for my own home, as I continue the never-ending, but super fun decorating process. You can shop items from Rumi’s home, and some other similar products, below. Or, skip on over to the Stuart Weitzman site to see if they have her shoes in your size. Either way, you can’t really go wrong!
