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 in recent years, and particularly since moving in 2018 and swapping the city centre for a coastal location, my interests have shifted, and the last few years have reminded me of what I love most: photography, nature walks, yoga, and writing.

I do still write for work, but now it’s a mix of journalism, copywriting (website and ghost blogging), and social media.

And this blog is now about life on the coast with posts about our walks in East Lothian, where we live. Simple walks, simple moments, simple experiences, but these are the moments that I enjoy most.

It feels odd having the historic design content on the blog now. I was tempted to archive it all, but this has always been a personal space to write – none of the content here has been sponsored – and the design content was once part of that. It was what I chose to write about a few years ago, so I’m leaving it here for now.

You can also find me sharing our coastal walks on Instagram, while the canine family members, Harris and Bracken, are also on Instagram here.

Thanks for reading, Fiona
