Décor Hunting: Terrain at Styer’s

Red Velvet Cake from Baked at Terrain

Last Tuesday the incredibly generous and kind folks at Terrain hosted a group of bloggers for the day. We called it Camp Terrain. The day far exceeded my summer camp days as we walked their beautiful grounds, soaked in their luxurious interiors and products, learned all about terrariums, indulged in spa treatments and dined on elaborate cakes and a seven course dinner. The day was perfection, it truly was. I feel so lucky to have been apart of it.

As I wandered their grounds, acknowledging all of the thought and energy that goes into such a beautiful place, I felt so inspired. I, too, want to bring this soft, organic feeling into our home. Layering the new with the old with thought and intention creates dimensions so rich you feel you’ve known a place like this forever. That’s how Terrain felt: it was a place I’d been before (though I never actually had) and I was so happy for my return.

Discovering the interior details as I poked along, memories of my family and friends flooded my mind, and I realized that’s what we’re all after: creating familiarity in our homes where we can breathe easy and focus on what’s important to us.

Tell me, friends, have you visited a place recently that’s made you feel the familiar?

So jealous you were able to attend “camp terrain!” I love how you described the experience and specifically, what it made you feel relative to inspiration and creating a meaningful home.

Oh, the red velvet cake was delicious. It was made by Baked in Brooklyn but no beets were used, just cocoa powder!
