This is what it looks like when you walk from the parking lot into Terrain at Styer’s. As soon as I pass onto the dirt path I immediately become relaxed. This past Friday, my wonderful husband accompanied me to my most favorite place….Terrain. Not his idea of a good time but he did it for me because I am so darn relaxed after I visit. He did admit later that he had a good time with me and the kids. I think part of it is that we always end up eating while we are there.
Anyway, I love Terrain. It is my happy place and a big inspiration for decorating the home, especially for the Holidays. I wanted to visit specifically in time for the Holidays. Terrain always has the best ideas and products. They are owned/affiliated by/with Anthropologie (surprise, no wonder I love Terrain).
It is definitely a place to visit if you haven’t already. They have a great SALE rack and some of their items are reasonably priced but I will say most things in Terrain are over priced. That is really the only down fall. Terrain took over a nursery that I used to visit with my mom when I was young called Styer’s so there was already a lot of room to work with. They transformed a nursery into a little getaway off of Route 1 near 322 outside of Philadelphia, PA.
They have a little cafe set in a greenhouse. The food is local and amazing. If you aren’t into shopping, it is worth going for the food. They also have a counter where you can grab an espresso drink and pastry. This is also attached to the store. Below are some pictures of the grounds. There is a lot to see and there are a few greenhouses and buildings that are fun to wonder through and get inspired.
I want everything in this picture.
Oh yeah….here as well.
This is outside the greenhouse where the main part of the restaurant is but they have seating out near the coffee bar too.
Inside the restaurant.
Cheese plate and scallops with a delicious barley salad I shared with my husband.
You can sit down with a hot cocoa, grab a blanket and sit by the fire. They started one shortly after taking this picture. I love this idea for our backyard near the fire pit.
Back side of the place where I would totally live if I could live at Terrain.
Beautiful table setting. They have examples of table settings throughout the store and grounds..so clever.
Love the textures and colors going on here.
I always find the “SALE” rack. They move it every once and a while but……. I always find it.
The front entrance of the cabin I want to live in.
Outside of the restaurant.
So, what do you think? Amazing right?! I seriously wish my house and surrounding backyard looked like this but alas it doesn’t so it is a nice place to visit. Again, I always find it very inspiring to go there and seriously wish I could work/live there. Maybe one day I can be creative enough to work for them. Until then, I will continue to visit and enjoy my time there.
I recommend going and at least walking around. Enjoy your week!
