10 Indoor + Outdoor Favorites at Terrain

by Grace Bonney

Because Julia and I both have been on book tours this fall, I’ve been focusing on spending time outside when I’m home in between events. I’ve missed out on fall favorites like planting cabbages and making wreaths, so I made sure to dedicate all my free time in the months before tour to keeping things green and growing outside. With all my visits on tour to the south, southwest and the west coast, I’ve been enjoying pleasant fall weather — and it’s still nice enough at home to hang outside. So just because we’re entering cooler seasons doesn’t mean I’m ready to head indoors or stop dreaming about our gardening plans for next year.

From planters of thyme to our surprisingly successful first crop of tomatoes and eggplants, I’ve so enjoyed all the results of our hard work outside over the past year. Next year I want to put even more time into our yard, so I’ve been eyeing some new pieces at my favorite gardening shop, Terrain, to keep me motivated for planting and planning next year’s lineup. If you’re looking to do a little fall growing, sprucing up or just planning for next spring’s plants, hopefully these 10 pieces will keep you growing in style. xo, grace

I've gotten really into container gardening this year, primarily because so much of our soil is rocky and it's been hard to break it up for flower or vegetable gardens. So this striped planter feels like a nice way to add some color and life to a little corner of the back patio or at the top of the porch steps. $128 right here.
If you've got to get dirt off your feet, why not do it with a super cute herringbone jute mat? This one is right here for $78.
Okay, I'm going to keep it real: we have a LOT of snakes in our yard. It's been a big adjustment to get used to moving huge (think: 8+ feet) snake skins out of our flower beds, but I keep reminding myself that they're helpful for the ecosystem and are as scared of me as I'm scared of them. But one thing I know: I need to get a hose that doesn't look like one of our common backyard green or black snakes. And this bright orange hose is just the ticket. $59 here.
These mint enamel trays are just asking to be filled with tomatoes and lettuce from the garden. $36 here.
Our nothing-fancy picnic table from IKEA has been perfect for backyard dinners and get-togethers, and this striped linen tablecloth is just the sort of thing I like to use to spruce up the table. It's laid-back but still grown-up and would work well indoors and out. $128 right here.
Soft linen napkins to go on top of that pretty tablecloth. $14 right here.
For all of my friends who feel like gardening is too much to tackle, this book is a great way to start. Herbs are one of the few things I don't have to think about much when it comes to gardening, and heading outside to snip something fresh to put on top of dinner always feels like such a reward. $17.95 here.
Julia and I bought a slew of lanterns when we first moved in, and they've been such a beautiful way to light the way home following a long, after-dinner dog walk. This one has a beautifully aged verdigris that feels like a vintage piece without all the hunting at a flea market.
One little splurge among my garden favorites: this blue stone ring ($78). Because Terrain seems to know that I love earthy jewelry as much as I love earthy garden design.
If herringbone isn't your style, this simple striped jute doormat works with just about every style, from modern city apartments to farmhouses. $78 here.
