The Story Of Home hosts are Percy Bright And Tara Mangini. They are real-life partners and run a business together.

The couple has been married for ten years, found an old embossing stamp at a flea market, dreamed up a design empire, and then began trying to create it.

Their work has been featured on GQ, New York Times, Design blogs, architectural Digest, Elle, and Apartment Therapy.

In the first episode, 'A Very Merry Bathroom,' of The Story Of Home, Tara and Percy renovate the bathrooms as they prepare the house for the holidays. They try to make their tempera paint but struggle to understand the Swedish instructions.

The show portrays how hard it can get for them to renovate and live in the same house. The results are lovely and eye-catching.
