Take a look at our special guests in 2024 while we plan for 2025!

Tamara Day of HGTV's Bargain Mansions  

Designer and host, Tamara Day, seeks to make the aspirational attainable for her clients and fans of her renovation projects. Tamara restores neglected Kansas City homes on Bargain Mansions. Bargain Mansions, which originated on DIY spent two seasons on HGTV and now has found its home at Magnolia Network, is going into its fourth season. When Tamara is not in front of the camera, she is committed to her family, design business, and retail store, Growing Days, located in Kansas City. Her style, coined "Laid Back Luxe," is synonymous with blending glamour, comfort, and family into the spaces she designs – something she personally prioritizes. As a busy mother of four, Tamara believes homes should be both beautiful and low maintenance because life is stressful enough. To keep up with Tamara and her projects, follow @tamaraday on Instagram.


Lindsey Uselding and Kirsten Meehan of HGTV’s Renovation 911

Award-winning, Minnesota based disaster restoration experts and co-owners of Practical Home and Ungerman Inc, Lindsey Uselding and Kirsten Meehan are the co-hosts of HGTV’s newest show Renovation 911, now streaming on MAX, Apple TV, Hulu Live, YouTube TV and Discovery+. As the Vice President, Lindsey is the first person homeowners talk to when they’re facing an emergency in their home.  Kirsten then takes charge of construction and design while bringing humor and empathy.  Together they help clients see past distress and create completely transformed homes that are better than ever.  During these disasters, their clients ask them, “How could we have prevented this from happening?”.  Because of this question, Lindsey and Kirsten launched Practical Home, a home safety, prevention and lifestyle company. They want to showcase design forward, savvy solutions and practical tips for any homeowner!
