On our way back from NYC we stopped at Terrain for lunch and a browse. It turned out to be the most inspiring place we visiting during our trip. Terrain is the most gorgeous gardening and lifestyle store that I’ve ever come across. At this time, there are only two location- one in Westport, CT and another outside of Philly. Just imagine Anthropologie does gardening- gorgeous displays, inspiring vignettes every which way you turn, a cafe that features seasonal, fresh food. I left with an acute case of garden envy and dreams of turning our dust-bowl of a yard into something quite lush and magical. We’ll see about that. We had a major plumbing issue this past winter that left our yard pretty torn up. The boys are enjoying having a very large sand bit in which to play, but it is rather depressing, aesthetically speaking. Maybe I can just move into Terrain. I’d gladly water all those plants in exchange for room and board 😉
I saw several books by my fellow Roost authors scattered about the store. I have big dreams that Little Bites might find a home here. I would seriously make the drive just to see how they had it displayed! Well, I’d use just about any reason to make the drive again. If you live within a 2 hour radius of a Terrain store, I would highly suggest making the trip. I ended up buying some garden lights, and a little craft project for the boys and I to do together this summer. I’m thinking if the lights are pretty enough, it might blind us into believing our yard looks nicer than it does!
