If you were to look at a calendar, it might seem like summer is winding down. But at Rue HQ? We feel like things are just heating up! Today, we’re sharing 5 sizzling links to inspire the weekend ahead:

We love this round-up of beautiful backyards on Apartment Therapy. The common theme? They all are home to a fabulous tiki hut! We even spy one that’s from our latest issue. Now, where’s that daiquiri to go with this link??

One of Britain’s biggest design talents – Ilse Crawford – is joining forces with IKEA and we are sort of freaking out. We want every last piece! Catch a preview on Refinery29 now.

If you’re based in LA, you’ve got to know about Fleurish. It’s the first “design it yourself” flower company and totally fulfilled our dream of playing florist for a day. The company offers classes both in their studio or at your home, or you can send a FleurKit for delivery – allowing the recipient to put it together and have tons of fun along the way.

This Parisian home we spotted on Apartment34 is totally dreamy. It’s got drama in all the right places and one heck of a marble fireplace. Take the tour ASAP!

Finally, we’re toasting to another great week with this whiskey cocktail. Cheers!
