post NSS trip to Anthropologie & Terrain

Well, if anyone knows me they know I'm quite a big fan of Anthropologie so I was beyond excited when they asked Nathan & I if we wanted to visit their offices after the stationery show to say hello and have a few meetings. I tried very hard to contain my bursting excitement when we arrived and snapped a few photos to share with you!

Above are a few photos of the Anthro building (the complex in the naval yard has buildings for each brand such as Urban OutfittersBHLDN, & Free People). I loved big open & bright space. It seemed like such a bustling creative environment with swatches of fabric and color everywhere you looked.

The photos above show the main entrance lobby & table, a view to the open workspace, beautiful terrariums on the front table, an amazing bike from India? that we were told would be sold in a few stores during the holidays, and the exterior of the building. 

Nathan and I decided to make a day trip out of our visit so from there we headed 30 min. south to Terrain at Styer's (also owned by Anthro) for shopping and dinner the cafe...

I LOVED Terrain. It was absolutely gorgeous between the outdoor nursery and the greenhouse style shop & cafe. Everything about it was so well done. As poor Nathan can attest I spent way too much time circling the shop a million times looking at everything and trying to pick out a late Mother's Day gift for my mom. The cafe was amazing as well. I especially enjoyed the baked bread in the terra cotta pot with the most delicious lavender honey butter.. yum.

In the photos above... hydrangeas & flowers, entrance sign, furniture gallery building, the inside of the shop, amazing bread baked in terra cotta pots, checking out the card wall (Terrain carries a few Rifle Paper Co. cards!), awesome ketchup label, beautiful items in the shop, and a view of the nursery

EEP! I'm seriously jealous. I feel like Anthro is the dream company to work for. Their space is stunning!

Hi Anna! Looks like a great time. I was wondering, are these fonts that you use on your pictures, or are these your own handwritten samples that you scan in? I love the look of them!

This post makes me even more excited about visiting Terrain next week! We have lots of fun things planned; however I'm sure this will definitely be a highlight of our trip. That bread looks wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful pictures!
