Houston’s real estate landscape is continually changing and growing. One of the newest prestigious properties is The River Oaks, elegantly designed, with a nod to the mid-century-mod roots of the building, by Lauren Rottet.

Proceeds from the art-like accessories went to local nonprofit Sunshine Kids.
