I get really excited before a field trip up to Terrain in the Brandywine Valley of PA. GPS programmed, check. EZ Pass toll card, check. Station wagon readied, check. Let's go!
With 2 locations, Terrain is the super cool and uber stylish nursery with the most amazing selection of plants, ornaments, furniture, accessories, books, textiles, and everything fabulous for home and garden. The PA store is located on the grounds of a former nursery, Styers, and features a charming restaurant in the old greenhouse---make a reservation as it is popular. Oh, and BTW, Terrain is owned by Urban Outfitters / Anthroplogie. So, you know the displays are gonna be awesome!
Recently, I invited my friend, Elaine, to join me on a field trip up to Terrain. We got there early so I could snap these photos:
A fantastic offering of the latest books on gardening, design, cooking, living, etc.
Terrariums were everywhere!
This terrarium is made from a large vintage apothecary bottle.
Gravel and rocks for your own terrariums.
I love this olive tree!
European table top linens.
Topiary standard cranesbill geraniums in bloom.
An awesome display of pots and containers!
The restaurant / cafe in the old greenhouse serves organic cuisine.
Our drinks were served in vintage canning jars - NICE!
I saved my favorite for last: a summer cottage on the grounds. Notice the burlap curtains.
Lovely displays inside the cottage.
