Terrain at Styers

This morning my mom and I went to Terrain at Styers, an extraordinary plant nursery cum home goods store cum delightful garden cafe. It was like something out of a movie - and why shouldn't it be? It's from the makers of Anthropologie and has a very similar design aesthetic (you know, painfully gorgeous and wildly out of my price range). I stealthed some pictures as we wandered around.

The fence behind this parking lot sign is made of long branches of wood woven through a metal frame. I kept picturing how stunning it would be as a property fence.

On the price tag, these were labeled "artifacts."

Rusty chain dangling from a board with peeling yellow and blue paint on it. Whatever it is, it's genius.

The last picture is of the cafe itself, a restored antique greenhouse filled with completely unique planter arrangements, and culminating in a wall of moss and interspersed plants (you can see it in the background of my photo).

I've really never seen anything like this place. Definitely go if you can!

I love those "walls"! I've wanted to make a quilt resembling one ever since they installed a giant hanging one above the escalators in the giant Whole Foods here.
