Home Sweet Home

Welcoming its first families in July, Tommy’s Place has cheerful rooms packed with personality, thanks to HGTV’s Taniya Nayak and her volunteer army of talented designers. After months and months of infrastructure it was finally time to get to the fun part of this home. A Disney-inspired vacation home for kids fighting cancer and their families.
