You may know Laura Day as one of Trading Spaces on-air talents…or you may have seen one of her inspiring projects in (name any of the national) magazines…or perhaps you know her as a web adventuress from her fresh and fab Laura Day Living…but did you know that she’s just a really nice, approachable person who is mom first, design mogul second? We didn’t either, until we had the chance to get to know her in person! We met with her in the Aqua Creations Showroom at NYDC so she could give us a piece of her mind…
NN: WHAT MAKES YOU GET OUT OF BED EVERY MORNING?
LD: My daughter-literally, my daughter wakes me up at the crack of dawn everyday! …also figuratively: )
NN: WHAT DO YOU DO DURING THE DAY THAT IS JUST FOR YOU?
LD: Exercise! I spin at a place called Soulcycle and it is the only 45 minutes during the day that I am focused on me!
NN: WHAT FUELS YOUR CREATIVITY AND HOW DO YOU KEEP THE FIRE BURNING?
LD: New York City! That’s why I live here. And… travel, books, other designers, artists, surfing the net, showrooms, EVERYTHING!
NN: OTHER THAN DESIGN, WHAT ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?
LD: My family and healthy Holistic living.
NN: WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH IN THE NEXT YEAR (OR TWO)? Goals achieved? Countdown the days with Mini-desk calendar from Paper Source

NN: WHAT WOULD WE BE MOST SURPRISED TO FIND OUT ABOUT YOU?
LD: I used to have a dragonfly tattoo across my entire back.
NN: YOU ARE A MOM NOW! WHAT ARE YOUR HOPES AND DREAMS FOR YOUR DAUGHTER?
LD: That she never has to have a tattoo removed! : )
NN: WHEN YOU LAY YOUR HEAD ON THE PILLOW, WHAT IS THE LAST THING YOU TEND TO THINK OF BEFORE NODDING OFF?
LD: Most of the time, I have no energy left to think.
