I chatted with Vern Yip, one of the judges of HGTV’s Design Star a few days ago. Vern has been wowing the masses with his innovative and aesthetically pleasing designs on television for nearly a decade. On TLC’s Trading Spaces, he was a fan favorite, often requested by families to transform their ho-hum homes into visually stunning and comfortable living areas. His ability to bring richness, function, and beauty into a home on a budget and under time constraints made him a household name in the home design community.
After launching his line of home fashions, hosting his own HGTV show Deserving Design, Vern joined Design Star. Design Star gives decorators a chance to host their own on HGTV program by competing in a series of design challenges each week.
Vern’s latest project is one that will surely garner the attention of all you Dee-Talers. HGTV is giving away a $1.5 million apartment unit in downtown Manhattan, designed by Vern!
Listen to our interview for details on how to win this home as well as budget friendly design tips!
Here is a sneak peek of the apartment!
