Locally based HGTV star and home renovator Tamara Day is on a roll.
Bargain Mansions, the show that documents her dramatic transformations of neglected Kansas City-area homes, just got picked up for a third season that will air this spring—it had 11.2 million viewers last season.
And Day recently opened a home-decor boutique, Growing Days Home, in Prairie Village that showcases her laid-back, luxe style. In addition to accent furnishings and coffee-table design books, here’s what’s you’ll see:
Area rugs. Dozens of wool rug designs are available in various sizes.
Art. This includes works by artists shown on Bargain Mansions, including abstract paintings on large canvases and smaller series of prints on handmade paper.
Candles. Growing Days’ signature fragrance is a soy candle scented with pink grapefruit, mint, and mandarin orange, poured in a gold-and-white ceramic container.
Wallpaper. Wallcoverings that Day used on the HGTV show are available.
Worry beads. The store features wooden worry beads —some with horse-hair tassels—strung on lamps and tabletops. Historically in Greek culture, the beads were used to pass time. Unlike similar prayer beads used in many religious traditions, worry beads have no religious or ceremonial purpose.
Day also offers design services.
