And How We Find Them

Artists We Love

Thomas Merton famously said, “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” An important factor in each of the homes we design is the stunning artwork that adorns and elevates the interiors we create; and with a summer chock-full of installs, we look forward to seeing more of our clients’ collections come to life!

Read on to learn how we curate art for each project, where we go to source one-of-a-kind masterpieces, and what inspires our selections.

The Hunt

Each new project presents a fresh artistic opportunity for our team. Some of our clients come to us with a well-established art collection and a clear point of view, allowing us to build their interiors around their existing artwork. Meanwhile, others request guidance in expanding their repertoire. You’ve probably seen sneak peeks of our art shopping trips on Instagram, and it’s always a treat to introduce homeowners to our favorite Houston galleries. Laura Rathe Fine Art, Hiram Butler GalleryGremillion & Co. Fine ArtDimmitt Contemporary Art, as well as art advisor Illa Gaunt, are a few local gems that always point us in the right direction.

Artists We Love

It’s imperative that our clients’ art not only inspires them, but also enhances and complements the surrounding finishes and furnishings. It’s our pleasure to recommend fine art for potential inclusion in a project; and we’re equally excited when a client introduces us to a fabulous new artist. If we polled our entire design team, our list of favorite artists would surely be too long to share! Nevertheless, here’s a quick list of artists with whom we’re currently in love.
