My mother-in-law worded it best when she said I was a “nester.” Meaning that in every house we move to, I feel the need to set it up quickly and make it our “home” as soon as possible. When we moved stateside on our last tour it was quite easy to “nest” with all the home stores available. I hit Target, Wal-Mart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Home Goods, and Ross just to name a few. However, when we arrived here at Incirlik I knew it was going to be more of a challenge finding décor to make our house a home.
You can imagine my excitement when a friend of mine told me about Tepe Home store. I just had to go and check this place out as soon as possible. It was easy to find (down the road from the M1 Mall) and an easy drive on the highway. The parking lot was huge and I remember thinking how this felt like a store in the states.
Tepe Home is similar to Pier 1 Imports. It not only sells home décor items, it also sells dishware and furniture. And the furniture selection is extensive! Bedroom, living room, dining room and patio sets. Along with single piece accent furniture. Wow!
The décor is seasonal, which I really like. We went there at the beginning of the summer and they had all kinds of bright and vibrant colors. Some of the décor sold in Tepe Home include silk arrangements, Yankee candles, throw pillows, mirrors and decorative vases. The prices rival those in the states. This is definitely an upscale store here in Adana and the prices reflect that. However, the quality of the items seemed well-made.
So, if you’re a “nester” like me and want to make that base house of yours a “home” for the next 2 years, then Tepe Home is worth the trip! It is also a great place to pick up a gift or shop for kitchen items. And if you don’t find what you want here, I noticed that there is another home store right across the street called Rain. We didn’t get a chance to go in, but through the windows it looked like it sold about the same things as Tepe Home. If you been to Rain, please comment below and let us know what it’s like. Thanks!
