{a visit to terrain}

Back from vacation in NYC & Upstate. While there, we took a trip to Terrain at Styer’s in Glen Mills, PA and also had dinner there. Although we miscalculated how long it would take to get there, it was worth it for the inspiration alone. {The food wasn’t too bad, and by that I mean it was fantastic.}

As you can see from the pictures, everything is impeccably styled, in a well worn and beautifully rustic way. Each of the buildings is built to look like very chic greenhouse or a luxurious shed with large portions of the roofs made of glass panels and shaded by reeds.

I’ve been in love with these lanterns for almost a year now, but it’s quite a different thing to see them in person. They’re absolutely stunning. They give off the coziest glow, and manage to be glamorous and rustic at the same time.

So many great ideas for the home and entertaining all over the store. {A few of my favorite picks at the bottom of this post.} Let’s not even get started on the terrariums.

As for dinner, the Cafe at Styer’s is a quirky little resto that is constantly holding an event {like cowboy campfires, bluegrass night, and all sorts of tastings.} You can BYO, which I saw plenty of guests taking advantage of. At night, the lighting all over Terrain is provided by garlands of bare bulbs hung throughout the buildings and the occasional lanterns, which gave everything a heightened sense of being at a garden party at night. Of course, topiaries and plants hang everywhere; and old doors with stained glass serve as dividers between some of the booths.

As mentioned before, the food was delish! I had a duck tasting with truffled macaroni and ended the meal with chocolate stout ice cream. {In case you’re wondering, yes you can bring kids. The munchkin had hummus, macaroni, and butter almond ice cream.} My favorite touch? The bread is baked in terracotta flower pots. How adorable is that?!
