Fresh Year, Freshen with Artwork

happy 2016, friends!

we often find when we take down our Christmas and holiday decor that our home feels drab, a bit blah, in need of some refreshing. what better way to do that than with artwork? 

featured local artists

It has been a delight for us to get to know local artists since we've opened our studio in April 2014. we love their different styles, beautiful use of color, and they fact that they're affordable.

Making original fine art accessible to our Houston clients has been one of our favorite things about having a brick-and-mortar storefront. 

Scroll through these photos and take a look at what an impact the right piece of artwork can make in a room.

Custom Commissions Available

All of our local artists accept custom orders if you need something tailored specifically for your space. We love how you're able to give them specific colors or dimensions and they run with it. If you're interested in commissioning artwork for your home or office, you can email Courtney at renovatecrp@gmail.com or call 713.291.1171 to speak with a studio associate. 

Lawrence and Crane is able to create a wide variety of finished artwork, from very neutral and subtle colors to bold and bright. Below is a series of paintings that this Houston artist did for a restaurant in New Orleans. Beautiful!
