Laura Thomas Co evolved from Laura’s love of white bed linen and going to sleep wrapped in crisp, white bed sheets. Now a leading online homeware brand, Laura Thomas Co sells high quality cotton and pure linen bedding, duvet sets and stylish homewares including hand-poured scented candles that are 100 percent natural using soy wax and essential oils. We caught up with Laura on a very comfy sofa draped with gorgeous herringbone blankets (designed by Laura herself, of course!)…

What is your greatest achievement?

Self discovery – who I actually was not who I thought I was.

What advice would you give to your 18 year old self

Listen more to your intuition – it’s always talking and it’s always right.

When are you happiest?

When I’m on a beach (anywhere in the world) walking barefoot and the sun is on my face. I’m happy and peaceful to my core.

When was the last time you laughed out loud?

This morning with my partner, he makes me laugh so my cheeks hurt.

What is the one thing people would be surprised to learn about you?

I lived in New Zealand for 10 years.

Favourite book?

Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez – in my opinion, it’s the greatest love story!

What word do you over use?

‘Epic’.  My daughters cringe.

Song that always gets you dancing?

Oh this is a hard one, I pretty much dance to anything around the kitchen table, if I’m in the mood!

Next adventure?

Portugal to surf on the West Coast in April

Finally, fitted sheet or flat sheet?

Always fitted! I’m a restless sleeper and flat sheets just don’t like staying still when I use them!
