As much as I love and see the importance of having colour in the home, when it comes to bedding the jury is still out. We’ve been settled here for over a year now and the bedroom is still one of the biggest question marks in my mind when it comes to what to do with it. I don’t think we’ve slept on anything but white sheets for the last five years-I find them cool and calming to sink into at the end of a long day. And on the odd occasion when I’m allowed a lay-in, they allow me the head space to think. So when Scottish designer Laura Thomas got in touch to tell me about her crisp, organic linens, I couldn’t say no.
Back in 2012, Laura was living out in New Zealand with her young family, where she found it difficult to source mid-range, well made bedding. Thus, she began her own company, sourcing high quality, fair trade cottons from India, Egypt and Vietnam. All of her collections are white with beautiful embroidered detailing and a high thread count.
I’m a huge fan of Laura’s ethos in being responsible and mindful of where and how her sheets are produced. And because they’re organic, they’re kinder on the environment too.
And my favourites? Hands down the Stockholm Collection (above). I just love the simple, stylish pleating around the edges. Because style doesn’t need to shout to make a statement, right?
Thank you Laura for getting in touch and for sending me a pair beautiful pillow cases to sleep on. I’m imagining the cool side of the pillow already. Think I’ll turn in now…
