Tamara Day, designer and star of DIY Network’s Bargain Mansions, is our guest for this Q&A style presentation!
Leawood’s very own, Tamara Day, and her crew renovate big, old houses she finds at bargain prices. While respecting the integrity and history of the homes, she integrates modern design, function, and style to the space –perfect for today’s families.
Tamara is a purveyor of the glam and cozy. This busy wife and mother of four styles for the spirited home, mixing glam, comfort, and family. Tamara’s sense of style and eye for what works has created an insatiable demand for her interior design expertise, furniture and décor.
Tamara grew up on the Midwestern plains in Salina, Kansas. Her “do-it-yourself” skill set comes from considerable experience in renovating homes. Growing up, she learned how to rehab houses from her dad, Ward Schraeder. After getting married, Tamara and her husband took on old, dilapidated homes that no one wanted and turned them into beautiful spaces.
One home in particular made Tamara the sought after designer and renovator she is today. While rescuing a home from foreclosure and neglect, the economy tanked, forcing Tamara to do a lot of the physical renovation work herself. To stay on budget, she went to estate sales and redesigned furniture to fit her vision for the house. Out of this experience, a new brand was born— Growing Days; Tamara’s interior design, furniture, décor and lifestyle business.
