She also brought the Moroccan influences to her garden, telling HELLO! in her 2018 column: "Whilst on a food shop in Sainsbury’s, I picked up some fantastic black and white Aztec print sofa cushions - and a matching floor cushion - for £35 that I dressed my patio furniture with. Complete with a complimenting black and cream woven floor rug from TK Maxx it added a lovely touch of comfort and texture to my outside seating area."

The TV star shared a hilarious photo of her bedroom as she worked from home during the pandemic. She has a double bed with a cream headboard and patterned side tables, and she huddled underneath the covers in order to do a voiceover. 

In June 2020, Laura revealed a better look inside her bedroom and revealed exactly where she bought her furniture from. "The ottoman at the end of our bed is bespoke made using Lustro fabric from @curtainfabricstore. Throws and cushions are from @dusk.com. Lamps and side drawers are from @something_special_home . The Headboard is from @theheadboardworkshopuk and the bed and mattress from @silentnightbeds," she wrote.

Speaking of how to make her son Rocco's room timeless as he grows up, she told HELLO!: "Instead of a traditional blue room, I went for a navy, grey and deep red colour theme. Before Rocco was born I had been filming a TV show in Malvern and I had found a really lovely plaque for his wall that said ‘Route 66’ in a deep red colour and that had influenced colour choices."

She added that she bought his bed from Wayfair, a circular table and chair, an easel with a chalkboard and paper board, a fabric teepee, and wire display shelves that she said "would give the room a bit of an industrial feel."
