    Our best-loved way to brighten up decor indoors and out, we just can't get enough of tiny, twinkling Stargazer Lights. As the days get shorter and fall approaches, we're thinking more than ever about decorating with lights. An expanded collection of Stargazers that includes new colors and lengths has just arrived, so we're finding even more places to incorporate these adaptable strands. Take a peek above at a few of our favorite ways to illuminate the table, garden, and anywhere in-between with Stargazers.

  • What's the most fun job at terrain? It's hard to say, but we'd have to guess that our Installation Designer, Matt M., has one of the best, since he gets to spend so much time surrounded by flowers! He says, "I've been with terrain since it launched in 2008. As Installation Designer, I do all sorts of styling, planting, arranging, building, foraging, climbing, hauling, and Instagramming-- and then I do it all over again." Around the office, Matt's known for his gorgeous floral creations and amazing Instagram photos, so we picked a few of our favorites and asked him to tell us what he's been up to this summer, both in the nursery and on his days off.

    Visit to Chanticleer Garden: Chanticleer, just outside of Philly, is one of my favorite places to get lost for a day. Its gardens are endlesslessly inspiring and whimsical.

    New York Flower Market: The flower district in New York City is the mecca for all things floral.  No matter how often I visit, I find something new every time. If you've never been to the 28th Street markets, you absolutely must check them out. Imagine the fleetingly beautiful lifespans of the most incredible flowers from all over the world, right in the heart of the most frenetic city on Earth. It's dazzling.

  • Habit + Habitat: Sarah Stern

    Ever wonder what the folks at terrain do when we're not in the garden? In our monthly series, Habit + Habitat, we're finding out by asking one person to share a favorite habit and a beloved habitat. This month, we’re chatting with Associate Buyer Sarah Stern about settling into her recently-remodeled beach house, a tranquil space filled with summer fun and family memories.

    terrain: What is your role at terrain? Can you describe your typical day?

    Sarah: I buy gifts, textiles, and accessories for terrain. I love my job because on any given day I use most, if not all, of my senses to evaluate product-- smelling candles and lotions to pick the perfect scent, feeling the weight and texture of a soft linen tablecloth, tasting multiple mustards to find our favorite for the summer, and of course looking at potential product all day long. I also do a lot of “looking” at Excel spreadsheets. It’s taking a toll on my eyes!

    terrain: What’s the one word that describes your habitat—your recently remodeled beach house, and your habit—hosting barbecues at the beach?

    Sarah: Tranquility. Even in the crazy and cold months of winter, I can close my eyes and think about sitting in my living room with the sea air blowing in. It brings me an indescribable sense of peace and tranquility, and I’m very attached to the house because of that connection. This is a family home that was on the market before Hurricane Sandy; my parents were moving to Vermont and I was so heartbroken over the impending loss of my favorite place that I couldn’t even talk about the subject. Then Hurricane Sandy happened and we had 3 feet of water sitting in our house for a month. Renovation was a complete gut job, and my husband and I took on the responsibility and decided to buy the place.
