The Price Behind The Art

FullSizeRender (23)

Native Houstonian, Katherine Price is painting the town with her incredible pieces. The word is spreading quickly about Katherine’s creations and for good reason. We are thrilled to note that Bering’s will be carrying her artwork and to kick-off her launch will be hosting a Meet the Artist Trunk Show with Katherine to share our enthusiasm with our customers.

Please mark your calendar for her show, set for June 18, 11 – 3 at our 6102 Westheimer store location.


Here are more of Katherine’s personal favorites…

It is always intriguing learning about the talent behind the artwork. We love a good story, as it makes the art even more appealing. Katherine agreed to answer a few questions we had about her work and hope you enjoy our Q & A dialogue:

FullSizeRender (15)11

Artist, Katherine Price

Q: Where do you find inspiration for your art?

A: I find my inspiration in the everyday. All you need to do open your eyes and breathe it in.

Art is my true passion. I love how there are no rules or boundaries in art. Painting allows me to share a bit of my soul with others. Where words fail, colors and strokes convey. I love the freedom of creative exploration!

Q: It is impressive that you are able to find time for your art with serving as the art teacher at The Fay School as well as raising your son Porter. When did you decide to start painting your pieces to sell for everyone to enjoy?

A: Off and on for a few years now. However, in January 2016 I decided to start selling my art as a secondary outlet from my current job. I started selling to local stores and have sold commissioned pieces to numerous homes across the Houston area.

Q: What would you say is your artistic technique when painting pieces?

A: I only use acrylic paint with either gold or silver leaf. I fell in love with my palette knife and only paint with it on all of my pieces. When I am in a zone, I sometimes use my bare hands as well. I find the purity of colors to be more rewarding this way!

Q: How do you go about selecting colors for your paintings?

A: I mainly use calming or soothing colors in my work. The colors are reflective of what I am feeling at the moment. However, my commissioned pieces often start off a bit differently in that the client tells me the colors and then sets me free to do my paintings!

Every piece truly is a labor of love. My personal goal, both commissioned and non-commissioned, is that my art speaks to the person it is meant for! …That is the power of art, and it is definitely difficult letting go of some of my pieces!

Q: With such incredible success early on in selling your pieces, what do you envision the future to look like for Katherine Price Art?

A: In the future, I hope and envision my art being carried in stores not only in Houston, but in other major cities too. I would love for an interior designer to feature my art in a Southern Living, Traditional Home, Veranda or Architectural Digest magazine photo-shoot one day! I am going to continue creating commissioned pieces for customers as well.

Looking forward, it is also meaningful to note that I recently donated a piece of art to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man and Woman of the Year Gala. I will continue to donate art, because I think it is very important to give back to others!

Q: What effect or emotion do you hope your art conveys/is felt by others?

A: I want my art to express a sense of calmness and relaxation. However, the feelings invoked by art are all personal to the individual.

Q: Having grown up in Houston, do you happen to have any stories/memories of coming into Bering’s as a child, adding to the excitement of now selling your art with us?

A: My family has been shopping at Bering’s for the past 30 years. I can’t remember a Christmas or birthday that didn’t involve a gift from Bering’s. My adorable mother has been with Bering’s for the past 15 years as well. I am thrilled to have a trunk show at Bering’s and beyond blessed for my God given talent to paint and allow others to enjoy my work!

Casual Summer Looks from Bering’s Children’s Department

A Pop Star Worthy Girl’s Birthday Party

It isn’t just everyday that you have a birthday, and even less frequent when you have the opportunity to celebrate the special day with two of your best friends! Bianca, Bridget, and Chloe (and their amazing mothers) worked hard to ensure their special day would not soon be forgotten by throwing a pop star themed party at Houston’s Hotel Derek.


VIP party credentials…



The Birthday Girls, Bridget, Chloe & Bianca!

The pop star theme was even more magical and vivid thanks to Bering’s stationery department. Our stationers customized this invitation suite and think they aced it!


From our stationery department to our children’s department, here is a closer look at birthday girl Bridget’s outfit! The handbag, top, headband, and glitter are available at both Bering’s locations!

And as any pop-star would arrive, the party kicked off with a ride to the party in a limousine! The limo dropped the girls off at Houston’s Hotel Derek:


Pre-party anticipation and excitement…



(The hand-glove and crimped hair is everything!)


…Did we mention that the pop stars were safe thanks to event security?!


Guests enjoyed an incredible concert of fun with delicious glowing cotton-candy…





…and more treats, eats & drinks!


You can’t go wrong with a rainbow cupcake guitar!


And nothing compliments a rainbow cupcake guitar like a neon Oreo tower!




Dress-up, decorating microphones, signing autographs, and more was all part of the fun!


Microphone decorating!





Your autograph please…



The concert was a blast with the talent of Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus!




As well as a little karaoke!






From our stationery department to our children’s department, you are sure to achieve party perfection at Bering’s! And since thank you cards are a must, we couldn’t resist sharing a close-up of Bridget’s! (Nothing says pop star like a rainbow unicorn!)

It was truly  a wonderful Birthday Party!


Pop star mommas!

All Stars for Bianca, Bridget and Chloe’s pop star birthday party!


We can hardly wait to see pictures from next year’s party, not to mention we are curious as to what the theme will be?!

Last but not least, a special thanks to everyone who attended as well as these amazing vendors:

Cloud 9 Cotton Candy, Enchanting Wishes Entertainment, Sweet Marie’s (delicious guitar cupcakes and painted oreos), Sommer B Photography, and Hotel Derek

Birthday fun!

Bering’s Wedding Registry Feature, Alex Carreno & Richard “Rick” Haines


Richard “Rick” Haines and Alex Carreno

“Our engagement will be something I will remember for the rest of my life – Rick made me feel like such a princess that weekend and every time it registers that I get to be his wife, I get excited all over again,” shared by bride-to-be Alex.


Alex & Rick at Rick’s Alma Mater, Baylor University.

Alex and Rick are newly engaged and we are thrilled to note that they have selected Bering’s for their wedding registry as well wedding stationery! And while we do not usually open our blogs with a quote, we couldn’t resist sharing it as it is truly pure joy.

This dynamic couple met online upon Alex’s mother urging her to give online dating a try. …Alex added that she’s convinced they were paired due to their mutual love of the Houston Tex-Mex staple, Escalante’s!

The two are glad they gave online dating a chance as the they are a definite match! In fact, Rick surprised Alex with a trip to the city they had their first date, Austin. He had carefully planned out the entire day, but ultimately surprised her at the gorgeous Lou Neff Point within Zilker Park on Town Lake. With the help of some wonderful planners and a photographer, Rick had Alex’s favorite flowers, hydrangeas and candlelight all around the point. It was there that he proposed with the most gorgeous ring that includes his mother’s original engagement diamond. …Good job, Rick!!!

theproposaltolove alexandrick99

The beautiful couple will be going to the chapel to get married on January 14, 2017 at the Hanamaker Chapel at Second Baptist on Woodway, the church Rick grew up attending. Their reception will immediately follow at The Houston Racquet Club, a special place in Alex’s heart where she spent many summers and evenings with her grandparents.

While Rick is proud to note that he is an “original-Houstonian,” Alex was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. However, it is cute that Rick says, she’s an “honorary-Houstonian,”noting that she did spend every summer here with her grandparents and lovingly refers to Houston as her home away from home.

When it comes to their wedding registry and stationery Alex shared, “We’re using the stationery department at Bering’s for almost all of our stationery needs. My grandparents always used to bring me along on their trips to Bering’s when I was younger and always knew that if I got married I would want Bering’s to be a part of my wedding.” Thanks, Alex’s grandparents and to Alex and Rick for continuing the tradition by starting their own at Bering’s!!

Since family is important to the couple they made sure to include Alex’s mother in helping to select their wedding registry pieces. Alex said that she helped them choose some really special pieces honing in on both of their unique styles.

The couple let us know that they especially enjoyed hearing Alex’s mother’s registry stories about pieces she picked and why or why not they should pick the same. And since we love mixing the old with the new it is exciting to note that they were given Alex’s great-grandmother’s silver, with her monogram AC (Alex’s maiden monogram) to have for special occasions!

Since some of you might already know Alex thanks to her amazing blog, Adored by Alex, which focuses on fashion and lifestyle, it is even more fun to share details of their wedding registry as well as wedding colors! While Alex said that they are still finalizing their wedding colors, they are leaning toward shades of white, some slate blue/green, with gold as an accent. …We can’t wait to see pictures!


And speaking of pictures, don’t you love their registry selection?! Guests of theirs will enjoy these beautiful Wedgwood Vera Wang Golden Grosgrain place settings as well as flatware and Waterford’s Kelsey pattern stemware!

goldengrosgrain wedgwoodveragros waterfordkelsey

From tabletop to barware for entertaining friends and family, Alex and Rick’s selections are classic with Reed & Barton, Reidel & Waterford:


We especially love the beautiful serving pieces they selected from Arthur Court, Beatriz Ball to Juliska – registry perfection!


And while we all love the pretty pieces above, equally good looking (as well as practical) are a nice set of J.A. Henckels knives topped off with a registry must-have, a YETI Cooler + cooler wagon!


Thanks to Alex and Rick for allowing us to be a part of the biggest day of their lives, it is truly an honor!

Wedding fun!
