Happy Friday, Rue readers! Here’s what caught our eye & inspired us this week. Enjoy:

The Napa Valley wedding of our Founder & Editor in Chief, Crystal Palecek, was featured on Style Me Pretty! The elegant affair was full of so many well planned details, and we’re still obsessed with that dress. Also, be sure to click through for Crystal’s wedding advice to future brides!

We are totally swooning over the San Francisco apartment of Refinery29’s Angela Tafoya. It’s a studio, so the space is small, but Angela offers up attainable tips & advice for creating a beautiful yet functional home.

We spotted this creative laundry room DIY on A Beautiful Mess. Such a cool & unique approach to flooring! Would you try it in your home?

If your DIY skills are on a smaller scale, check out this quick & easy project from Paper & Stitch instead. We love the hint of glamour it would add to any room or party.

As the days start to really heat up, we have a feeling we’ll be turning to this refreshing recipe from Shutterbean time & time again. It’s great for adults AND little ones.

We’re absolutely obsessing over this stunning soiree by the sea we spotted on Mariannan. The colorful tabletop is what our entertaining dreams are made of… and those lanterns?? Perfection.

Lastly, we don’t mean to nag… but are you wearing your SPF every day? It can be easy to forget, especially on your lips! We love this guide to the best “pout protection” that will also add just the right hue to your pucker. Bisou bisou!
