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.”
Designed in Venice Beach and made in downtown Los Angeles, boy+girl produces playful children’s clothing. Designer Christine Chang reveals with us her visual inspiration for the brand’s current collection. Intricate, fun, and completely captivating, this moodboard could inspire our own closets.
“The Fall collection pulls from a wide range of inspiration. For boy, I always really love Japanese textile meets the great outdoors: lots of layering and the mix and match of textures, colors, prints and materials. Polka dot is a classic ‘print’ that never gets old, for this season I did tiny and big polka dots in navy and black. For girl, I like a very undone done, super feminine, lots of interesting shapes and beautiful colors. I love dreamy colors in the Fall.”
Jessica Taft Langdon, the talented designer behind The Palatines, gives us some visual insight into her inspiration for the exclusive slide she designed for our collaboration.
“The thing about denim is that it’s everywhere. It’s totally ubiquitous. It’s become such a staple of every wardrobe, that it can go completely unnoticed. It’s reliable, it’s quiet, but it’s great. It can become anything you want it to be. It’s iconic and anonymous at once. That kind of subtlety is the aesthetic that informs my approach to designing for The Palatines. I want the shoes to be able to go in almost any direction, stylistically. They can be worn in a quiet, unobtrusive way, or they can become more of the statement. Maybe they even become ubiquitous.”
Feeling all the pretty things this week inspired by Pantone’s official colors of 2016: rose quartz and serenity.
Anabela Piersol of Fieldguided embraces the colder months for her December mood board.
“According to a recent article in Fast Company, the people of Norway don’t look at winter as something to dread, but instead as something to enjoy. It might seem difficult to wrap our minds around this mindset, but this winter, let’s look to the Norwegians: a few simple DIY projects, cozy knits, twinkle lights, hot drinks (booze optional!), and the occasional ice skating trip certainly can’t hurt.”
