The last stop on our Texas road trip, we thought we would be absolutely exhausted by the time we made it to Houston. However, the city, the clients we met, and incredible food and shopping definitely revived us. We had the best time at La Colombe D'or hotel and can not wait to go back. Below are some of our favorite spots in Houston!
Heights Mercantile is a chic, urban market district that is the perfect spot for an afternoon stroll and some shopping. We love the Museum of Fine Arts’s curated gallery space and sustainable boutique Favor the Kind.

Rebecca's beautiful jewelry begins with ethically sourced gemstones, leather, and mixed metals. Inspired by her spiritual upbringing and her mother’s DIY know-how, her jewelry combines unexpected materials and embodies elegant minimalism. All of the jewelry is designed and created at studio 703 in Houston, which is a space curated by Rebecca that highlights local artists.

Sooooo good. Like sooooo good. A Houston favorite for salads and sandwiches, this was one of our favorite lunch spots in Texas. They sustainably source their ingredients from local Texas farmers, and they have plenty of gluten-free and vegan options. The crunchy chicken sandwich is amazing, but whatever you order, you know it’ll be great.
Multiple locations, but our favorite is in Heights Mercantile
Come here for unique finds and a great selection of denim. We like the reworked denim by local artisans and the cute, flirty dresses. Owner Denise Lucia and her daughter, Katie, stock the perfect mix of sophisticated French designers to casual West Coast brands, so you’re guaranteed to find something insane.

The incredible space that hosted our pop-up, La Colombe D’or Hotel is truly something special. The original mansion was built in 1923 by an old oil family and turned into a hotel in 1979. It was revamped this year by Gin Design Group, Dan Zimmerman, and Rottet Studio into an art-filled luxury hotel that pays homage to its historic past. The art gallery and sculpture gardens are inspiring, and the rooftop pool has sweeping views of downtown Houston. The on-site restaurant, Tonight & Tomorrow, is helmed by local chef Jonathan Wicks. It’s great for everything from brunch to after-dinner drinks. The hotel is located around the corner from Houston’s museum district and Hermann Park, which is a great place to walk around. The Montrose neighborhood is also filled with cute cafes, bars, and boutiques. La Colombe D’or is everything a hotel should be- amazing service, beautiful decor, and good food.
