Our hydration, vitamin and mineral levels all affect our day to day lives.    When we ignore them, because life and work tend to get in the way, it is to our own detriment.    The genesis of  Aurea  is to help patients address things like low iron and Vitamin D deficiencies in a spa setting at a medical grade facility.    If a patient wants to unplug and unwind, all of this is done in a relaxing atmosphere with views of downtown Houston.  We also offer services in a lounge that is also designed for a group setting. Our patients are encouraged to be involved in a collaborative approach with our staff and determine what suits their needs best.    A full medical history and vital signs are taken before each treatment.  There are several options to pick from, but our most popular IV bags include Alleviate, which contains magnesium chloride and calcium chloride and addresses symptoms such as bloating and fatigue; and our Mineral Blend contains magnesium

RUN WITH THE RABBIT NESTLED WITHIN THE QUIRKY STREETS OF THE HEIGHTS ARTS DISTRICT, YOU WILL FIND A RABBIT, BUT NOT THE KIND WITH LONG EARS AND A FLUFFY TAIL. No, this is Jack Rabbit, a contemporary art gallery that is all about making Houston’s homes and offices beautiful and inspiring. This 2,000 square foot fine art gallery, which opened its doors less than a year ago, is the perfect space for both emerging and established artists to showcase their work. Hosting a wide variety of American and International artists, from painters to sculptors, guests are encouraged to grab a drink and casually explore the airy, industrial space with high ceilings and abundant natural light at their own pace. Jack Rabbit Gallery wants its guests to walk in the door and fall in love with a piece of art on display. The owners, husband and wife duo James and Jodi Grogan of Houston, founded the gallery with assistance from their daughter Hali, who studied art at the Art Students League of New York. James and Jodi met in college, where James majored in Art History, and Jodi majored in Studio Art.  They are a family of art lovers. The Grogans felt the Heights was the perfect location to open a new gallery concept because of its burgeoning reputation as the creative and artistic hub of the Houston-metro area. Jack Rabbit hosts a variety of both national and international artists, showcasing an exciting array of

It's an incredibly enjoyable experience to walk into our gallery. Our artists are bold and intellectually provocative. But more importantly, every piece of art we curate in the gallery was selected for its exceptional beauty.

BESPOKE ARTISTRY IN HOUSTON I’VE BEEN USING THIS TECHNIQUE FOR SEVERAL YEARS, AND MY CUSTOMERS LOVE IT.”

ROBERT CHRIS NOEL FAMED HOUSTON PHILANTHROPIST LYNN WYATT ONCE SAID, “ART IS THE SOUL OF ANY CITY.” She may have been speaking about Houston’s prolific museum and theater arts districts, but accessible custom art that is a part of someone’s home “Raspberry Beret”

or compliments the color pallet of a room is just as important and much more personal. Enter sculptor, modern, and abstract artist Robert Chris Noel who has been filling Houston’s luxury homes with custom art for decades. Native Houstonian Robert Chris has been drawing and painting for as long as he can remember. One of his earliest memories of creating art was a very detailed bumble bee he drew at the age of 5. Given the opportunity in school, he would sketch on his classwork, and if he needed an easy “A” to boost his GPA, he always relied on art classes. Now one of the most sought-after artists in the southwest, Robert Chris, known to everyone as “RC,” fills his days with not only art but interior design, as well. His art makes a statement. It is impossible to walk into a room with one of his paintings and not be drawn to it. Heavily textured with color and lines that seem to move within the frame, his art is found in some of the most opulent homes and restaurants in Houston. RC’s background is as colorful as his art. After going to college at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, he

one side of the acrylic is smooth and glossy, while the other is mounted high with heavy texture. He uses acrylic paints, as well as gold and silver leaf to achieve the desired texture and color. RC doesn’t strive for perfection; outlines of paint cans, brushes, and scrapers can be found in his art, but they just add to the overall feel of the painting. “What is really nice about painting on acrylic is that customers get two pieces of art instead of one. Each side is completely different from the other, so when you get bored of one side, all you have to do is flip the piece around to enjoy the other,” said RC. “I’ve been using this technique for several years, and my customers love it.” If you visit RC’s studio, he will proudly show off his art, both finished and unfinished, but he will also proudly show off his famous painted shirts, jackets, and even jeans. Stacked, piled, draped, and sometimes on hangers, his studio is filled with painted clothing in different states of completion. What began as a fun way to clean up his paint has turned into his signature style. “I use white shirts to clean up my mess. Instead of using towels or paper towels, I use shirts. I began wearing my painted shirts, and people loved them, so now I sell them – sometimes people even buy them off my back,” said RC. “It was never my plan to have my painted

clothing become my signature, but so many people asked where I got my shirts or jeans that were covered in paint, so I just decided to go with it and make custom painted clothing.” It is evident after talking with RC for even a few minutes that he is not a trend follower. He focuses on what he likes and what works for his customers instead of following the latest trends in the art world. “I could give you a line about trends, but I would be lying. My art is all about color and what feels right in a room,” said RC. “You’ll probably never see an artist sweat as I do, but when I get into my studio, I have to put the paint on fast, because acrylic dries so quickly. It is hard work, and when I have been painting for 3-4 hours, I am exhausted and sweaty. It takes me a few hours to recover after a painting session, but it is worth it when I am done.” Art is in the eye of the beholder, but no one can deny that whether it is through his shirts, paintings, or furniture – RC has added to the soul of Houston.

ANTIQUES ARE MAKING A COMEBACK. Whether you’re an antique aficionada, a thrifty thrifter or new to the whole concept of vintage revival; whether it’s a hand-me-down, a thrift-store-find or just something cool you stumbled upon at an estate sale; endless opportunities exist to effortlessly incorporate retro, vintage, antique or whatever-you-want-to-call-them items into different parts of your modern home.

tips

wood to your liking.

Don’t be afraid to do something different, and don’t take things too seriously. If the piece you’re working with doesn’t have any real value, you have so many options to liven it up, including paint, finish and hardware.

Make your piece multi-purpose by turning the lid into a game table or by storing your cocktail accessories inside for an easy-access mini bar!

Spread the vintage love. Use antiques strategically and as accent pieces to keep your overall aesthetic from coming off as too dated.

Repurpose old tins, mugs, teacups or storage containers into succulent gardens. Because succulents have shallow root systems, they can survive (and thrive!) in smaller spaces.

Make it art. Don’t be afraid to display unique pieces as wall art. Consider creating a gallery wall that mixes vintage photographs, prints, mirrors and china.

SINCE OPENING ITS DOORS IN THE SUMMER OF 2019, MAD HOUSTON IS QUICKLY BECOMING A NAME EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT. This eccentric, Spanish inspired tapas restaurant is in a category all of its own. Owner Ignacio Torras and Chef Luis Roger have teamed up once to again to take Houstonians on a dining experience that effortlessly transports them to Spain’s capital city of Madrid. The food is an adventure for the taste buds, allowing guests to taste the vibrant flavors of Spanish cuisine with savory dishes such as the MAD Tomato, Ostras (Oysters), and Pulpo (Spanish Octopus). For dessert, their best-selling dish is  “Huevos Voladores,” which doesn’t just look out of this word; it tastes like it too. All this incredible food can be washed down with a drink designed by cocktail consultant, Jerry Argüelles. Jerry is best known for his highly-sought-after Gin & Tonic preparations and adds an exciting list of beverages to the menu, such as a Sandia or a Pimiento. The décor is by Barcelona- based designer Lazaro RosaViolán, and he has ingeniously captured the character and energy of the streets of Madrid and incorporated it into Houston’s luxury retail hot spot known as River Oaks District.  MAD is not just a restaurant; it’s a journey from MAD to the Moon.
