Gabriella Dyson

Assistant Editor

Gabriella is Homebuilding & Renovating's Assistant Editor. She is a DIY enthusiast and a lover of all things interior design, often found in antique shops and reclamation yards (or simply browsing the aisles of her local B&Q).

She has a particular passion for historic buildings and listed properties. Currently, she is in the process of renovating a Grade II-listed Victorian coach house in the West Country. Gabriella studied Modern History at The University of Oxford before pursuing a career in journalism. She attributes her fascination with architectural heritage to her degree and the 'dreaming spires' of Oxford.

After graduating, Gabriella moved to London, where her first industry job had her writing for the Luxury London magazine group. Working across a range of premium titles, she honed her writing skills by composing articles for the home and lifestyle pages and conducting interviews with leading architects and designers, such as Timothy Oulton and Christian Liaigre.

For much of the past decade, Gabriella has worked as a freelance writer, crafting copy for national publications and renowned homeware brands. She served as the Content Manager for the ethical homeware brand Nkuku, assisting in shaping its tone of voice on its journey to securing B-Corp status. Additionally, she has lent her expertise to award-winning Southwest architects, aiding them in communicating their ideas to the press.

In 2019, she launched her own series of UK guidebooks and an online travel resource called 'The Maverick Guide.' Publishing these popular travel books has allowed her to collaborate with hotel and property owners, each of whom has ventured into renovation and interior design projects of their own.

At Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine, Gabriella is responsible for curating the magazine's home case studies and regularly contributes to the Homebuilding website.
