About Us

Since our maiden issue in October 1980, Home Journal has been the leading design and lifestyle magazine in Hong Kong.

With over 38 years in the market, our bilingual (English and Chinese) monthly publication has long served as a trusted resource for both designers and homeowners. Whether your style is refined or relaxed, Home Journal’s editors are hard at work to provide a dossier on the latest in design and lifestyle, from interiors inspiration to travel ideas.

Apart from the monthly magazine, we also publish two annual titles – Home Solutions and Home Journal Buyer’s Guide. The former is a decoration and renovation bible released every summer, while the latter is a comprehensive directory of the best sources for the home published at the end of each year.

Meet our editors

Emily Leung, Editor

Hong Kong-born and London-raised, Emily is a lifestyle editor who previously served as Deputy Editor at Home Journal and Senior Editor at Hong Kong Tatler. Passionate about art and design, people and travel, Emily is a Bachelor of Laws degree holder. She is also an interiors and event stylist who co-founded an online retail store and boutique events company to satisfy a niche in the market for children’s soirees. Her favourite role is the proud mother of three young boys.


Gavin Yeung, Digital Editor

Vancouver-born and Hong Kong-raised, Gavin has also spent stints studying in England and Japan, the latter of which might explain his enduring affinity for hojicha lattes. He is in avid pursuit of the latest in the local dining scene – avowed to never visit the same restaurant/bar/cafe twice – yet by his own admission seeks them out more for their interior design than their culinary offerings.  Follow his misadventures at @gaviny.


Johna Baylon, Associate Editor

A former food writer and video host, Johna brings her curiosity for all things good and creative to the world of design as part of the Home Journal team. Most fond of people and their stories, she admits to enjoying interviews and conversations just as much as discovering beautiful spaces. She is also an occasional photographer and a full-time advocate of mental health.
