Today I had the pleasure to hear a presentation from the fabulously talented Vern Yip at Karen Saks. You may know Vern from his time on “Trading Spaces,” HGTV’s “Design Star,” and most recently “Live in Vern’s House.” He’s had such an illustrious and varied career as an architect, designer, television personality, UNICEF Ambassador and columnist for The Washington Post. Vern is so congenial and has a way of enrapturing every person in the room, from stories of his life to the pictures of his four beloved dogs.
Vern’s newest endeavor is a line for Trend Fabrics and his creations are absolutely stunning. He’s used his three homes as a showcase for his new line and the combination of traditional and contemporary pieces with bold pattern and color creates a truly unique, stunning space. Vern's line for Trend shows his style of timeless design in stunning colors. I am such a fan of the warm poppy tones and the stunning range of blues from dark inky tones to soft pastel tones.
I feel so thankful for the opportunities to be inspired by the work and lives of designers like Vern Yip.
Have a great day,
