Essential Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom has appointed a new editor.
Gail Major has worked in journalism for 15 years on a variety of subjects.
She recently returned from Tuscany, Italy, where she has been renovating her property for a year while editing a UK-based travel website.
Prior to this she worked on numerous Emap titles over a 10-year period including Practical Photographer, Choice, Yours, Garden News and Trail.
She worked as a sub, features editor and in production and became editor of Garden Answers.
Major also edited a programme for Channel 4 to promote the Chelsea Flower Show.
Before joining Emap, Major worked within the Thompson Group on the women’s pages of publications including My Weekly and The Journal, Newcastle.
Major is passionate about homes and gardens. She said: “I am delighted to be editing a magazine about something I love so much.
“I will be spending time thinking how to strengthen what is there such as the photography and types of homes we will feature.
“At present there is a very clean, minimal feel, but that will not appeal to all our readers, so I plan to introduce more variety to the magazine.”
EKBB is published monthly by Essential Publishing, which claims a circulation of 25,000.
