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. Initially I was blogging about architecture and interior design, as I’ve 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 here, all the content is about design.
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.
As a result, I haven’t been blogging much. When not working, I’ve been getting outdoors and taking photos rather than being at my desk. But I’ve missed writing, and I’ve missed this space. So, while there’ll still be some design content here, I’ll mostly be sharing more personal posts about our trips and walks around Scotland.
I’m also keen to introduce some new content centred around vegan living. I’ve been vegan for about twenty years, and again this feels like a natural evolution for this space. I’ve love to showcase some brands that are embracing this ethos in their products.
I should say – as I get asked this a lot – I don’t feature any guest posts. This blog has always been a personal space to write, and none of the content you see here has been sponsored.
Take care, Fiona
