Rebecca Foster

Hello! I’m Rebecca, and I freelance for Homes & Gardens. I contribute a range of articles to the magazine, from design-focused features to real life case studies. 

After starting my journalism career at a luxury property magazine in Bangkok, I re-located to London where I started out as a sub-editor and features writer. I later became the features editor of a popular self-build and renovation magazine, where I delved into the world of structural systems, eco tech and smart homes.

I went freelance in 2017 to pursue my dream of becoming a yoga teacher, but I still write for numerous titles in the homes and interiors sector.

My background is in self-build and renovation, so I’m happy to chat about a plethora of topics, from oak frames and kit houses, to glazing innovations and cladding. 

My dream is to build a contemporary glazed extension to the rear of a traditional Victorian property, and then fill it with furniture from Oliver Bonas, and Swoon Editions. After visiting an array of spectacular homes across the country, I can’t wait to install underfloor heating in my own house! In my own home, I have cultivated a Japandi style, with a mix of warm Scandinavian tones and textures complemented by Japanese, Korean and Chinese accessories.
