Hello and thanks for visiting Copperline.

I launched this blog in 2015, having started blogging in 2013, but my love of design started long before that. I went to art college with the intention of studying drawing and painting, and then discovered fashion design – although now, all these years on, and considering that I live in a uniform of jeans and jumpers, I find this early version of myself hard to remember.

And then, a little later, and really by chance, I started writing about interiors and architecture for newspapers and magazines. It wasn’t a long term plan, but twenty years on I’m still writing about design for Scotland on Sunday. I’ve always connected to the stories and ideas behind the spaces – the owners, the designers, the motivations and inspiration behind the projects.

Copperline has been a natural extension of this; a place to feature design and spaces and products that catch my eye. As it stands, none of the content you see here has been sponsored. Also I don’t work with guest bloggers as the blog has always been personal. Maybe this is something for the future.

I’m also passionate about vegan living – which, of course, means more than what you eat. It’s also about what you wear; it’s the choices you make when sourcing products for your home. And when I’m not writing, I’m either on my yoga mat or I’m out taking photos, accompanied by my wirehaired dachshunds Harris (photographed) and Bracken.

Which is why this page isn’t illustrated with photos about design. I write about design, but taking photos, getting out into nature and exploring – that’s what I love most. You can find me on Instagram and on Steller, and you can find Harris and Bracken here. Do pop over and say hello.
