Linda graduated from university with a First in Journalism, Film and Broadcasting. Her love for interiors began when she bought her first utter wreck of a home two decades ago, and she realized writing about interiors would make her far happier. She began on a trade title for the kitchen and bathroom industry. She has been working for Homes & Gardens, then sister-brands Livingetc, Country Homes & Interiors and Ideal Home, since 2006, covering all manner of interiors topics, though kitchens and bathrooms are her specialism. The late Mark Wilkinson OBE was (and still is) her all-time design hero.
