Renovate Houston

Have you heard about the new little store in the Spring Branch area of Houston called RENOVATE?  If you are going to IKEA or anywhere near you need to make plans to stop by RENOVATE as well?  It is the opposite experience of IKEA…small, local, easy parking and not overwhelming but instead delightful, cozy and charming.  And its full of local art and gifts, renovated furniture and pillows!  What’s not to like?

I adore their sign, logo and “branding” it really shows how unique ideas and creativity  of owner Cathy and daughter Courtney!

And then you walk in sign and its art, gifts, furniture and more!

They feature different artists each month.  The  work above is by Houstonian Kellie Morley. If you are looking for art in the Houston area but aren’t familiar or comfortable with art galleries this is a great way to learn about some local artists in a comfy way. I love that they are doing this! Makes art accessible and fun to find local artists.

Oh my heart! I love these, I want to get some baby or teachers gifts or do a whole little section of like 9 of them of them for myself..they make me smile! The artist is  Austin James, his company is “Lawrence and Crane”!!!! They’re made from reclaimed wood and resin – only $24!

Here is a photo of the Renovate layout in the recent Houston Scout book….if you haven’t see the Scout book its great and they have them at the store! Cathy and Courtney are so pretty. The store is a mix of gifts, accessories, “renovated” furniture and art!

Last but not least my planters and boxwood balls I got there recently for our new home! Love them.


 God bless you Renovate on this  journey of creativity and business.  I love what you are doing Cathy and Courtney! And Houstonians check them out and buy local!
