Newly full-time mom and long-time expert blogger, Anabela Piersol is known for her inspirational pictures and daily writing. Her Instagram feed @fieldguided has taken a turn onto babyville with her son Luca and we couldn’t love it more. Anabela took some time from her busy days and created a moodboard filled with her vision when planning the nursery for baby Luca.
“My ambitions weren’t too lofty and didn’t require the most expensive elements. I wanted to create a serene space that he could grow into as his personality and tastes developed. I was very inspired by many of the Scandinavian-style nurseries and homes that I’ve seen online, which are often very high contrast with black and white details. Of course, I still love color, which is brought in by special toys and board books.”
What’s the biggest thing to keep in mind this summer, according to Fieldguided’s Anabela Piersol? Enjoy the little things in life and, most importantly, do absolutely and utterly nothing.
“Goals for summer: always lazy and unambitious. Cutoffs, ice cream, carnivals, and festivals. Taking plenty of dips in cool, cool water. All the fruit and all the icy cocktails.”
To help kick off Denim Month, our contributing editor Anabela Piersol of Fieldguided gathered her favorite inspiration in an ode to blue jeans.
“Is there any fabric in fashion that is more classic, more enduring, or more versatile? Available in deep indigo hues to the palest of blues, it’s easy to see why jeans have become iconic. From high fashion to work-wear, from Hollywood to the runway to the street, denim will continue to endure forever.”
Nothing says spring is here like fresh flowers and dewy greenery. With this in mind, Anabela Piersol of Fieldguided is bringing our inspiration into season with hues straight from the garden.
“Plant power! There are many good reasons why plants and flowers are having a real moment: not only are they a quick decorating fix, but the air-filtering abilities of many plants make them good buddies to have around. With all the resources available online, there has never been a better time to turn that black thumb to green!”
From vivid shades of magenta and tangerine to candy-like pastels, Anabela Piersol of Toronto style blog Fieldguided wants to reboot our neutral winter palettes and bring us into spring.
“There is merely less than a month until spring, and up here in the north, our eyes are a little tired of grey and are starved for color. In anticipation of trees bursting with blooms, here’s a little reminder that the color is out there.”
In the spirit of our holiday collaboration collection, The No Filter Series, Anabela Piersol of Fieldguided went monochrome for her inspiration mood board this month.
“It’s not always bold and vibrant colors that can create drama. Sometimes the very absence of color can be just as striking, as this black and white imagery shows.”
For October, Anabela Piersol of Fieldguided has all the cozy feels on her inspiration mood board.
“Now that we’ve said goodbye for sticky, sun-kissed skin, it’s time for all the things that make autumn so cozy: chunky knits, endless pots of tea, pulling the camel wool lapel of a perfect jacket close against your face, and snuggling up with a good book. And a fire in the fireplace, should we be so lucky.”
We’re so excited to welcome our new contributing editor Anabela Piersol, the founder of Toronto-based style blog Fieldguided! She’ll be sharing her style mood boards each month so come back the first Friday of every month to get inspired. For September, she’s soaking up the final days of summer. Sniff.
“For me late summer is all about the light, and it’s probably my favorite time to travel.”
Starting with a line inspired by Beyonce lyrics and adding some gorgeous watercolours, we are so in love with what Anabela Piersol came up with for our wallpaper collaboration. Here shares her moodboard of inspiration for the Fieldguided x Garmentory design.
