Hello and thanks for visiting Copperline. If this is your first time here – and if you’re reading this About page, I realise it might be – then welcome. I should start by saying that this blog has changed a lot since I first launched it in 2015. For a start, it’s no longer about design. Initially I was blogging about architecture and interiors having written about both in my ‘work life’ for newspapers and magazines for over twenty years. Sharing about design here was an extension of that, and if you dig back into the archives, all the content is design related.
But over the last few years – really since moving in 2018 and swapping the city centre for a coastal location – my interests have shifted, and the last year has reminded me of what I love most: photography, nature walks, yoga, and writing. If you’d asked me in the ‘old life’ pre-Covid-19, that list would have been the same, but 2020 was clarifying.
And, as an extension of that, the content I’m sharing here has changed. I’ve always felt that if you’re writing something for pleasure, you need to really enjoy the subject. You need to want to sit down and write. So now, this blog is about life on the coast, and I’ll be sharing posts about our trips and walks around Scotland – although there might still be the (very) occasional design post when something catches my eye.
I should say (as I get asked this regularly), I don’t feature any guest posts, and none of the content you see here has been sponsored, including the design posts in the archive.
Thanks for reading, Fiona
