Happy one year anniversary to this little blog.
I started Scotch & Nonsense right around the time we bought our home. I've written about it before, but this blog came about more or less out of frustration with what I was - and wasn't - finding in the design blog world. Plenty of large, lofty, white-on-white spaces. Plenty of glamorous and preppy rooms. They were lovely to look at for sure, but not so helpful when I needed inspiration for our little Victorian townhouse. I craved color and a bit of edge, and I decided to write about it myself.
As for the name Scotch & Nonsense? I don't know what to tell you. My brain was fried with moving stress and I guess I thought it was cute.
In the year since, I've worked on, obsessed over, and gotten lots of joy from my little corner of the internet. It's often a painstaking process and there are days I seriously question whether I should press Publish, but I've enjoyed working on improving my writing, photography, and eye. I've also enjoyed getting to know fellow bloggers, many of whom are writing the kinds of stylish and unique blogs I was looking for. And I have loved getting to know the people who stop by here and share their thoughts and experiences. Finding this little community of people who join me in swooning over dark painted dining rooms, will laugh with me at my occasionally lackluster DIY projects, and toast to happy hour on Friday has been an absolute blast.
Thanks for following along with the nonsense! Here's to much more.
READY FOR MORE?
