I have been a huge fan of Terrain, the home and garden website, for quite some time. Earlier this summer, I was chatting with my dear friend, Sara Goodstein, who heads up communications at Anthropologie and she told me that Terrain was opening a store in Westport, Connecticut. Of course the masterminds behind Anthropologie and BHLDN also created Terrain!! I was so excited because Chris, Jack and I were planning a visit to see my sister Cheryl and her family, Pete and Will, in Bronxville so I knew they would be up for a short trip to Westport. And, Chris’ sister, Natalie, and her family live near Westport so we would be able to see them, too!
The Saturday during our trip, we drove to Terrain and soon realized it was the perfect destination store. The enormous store and its outdoor garden department, with its perfectly curated product vignettes, makes you feel like you’re roaming around a giant cabinet of curiosities…with some amazing gourmet foods, dishware, and beauty products thrown in! We all had a ball walking around and shopping. But the pièce de résistance had to be Terrain’s farm-to-table restaurant, Terrain Garden Café.
