Vern has been wooing audiences and homeowners alike since he began sharing his designs with a television audience nearly 10 years ago. As seen especially in his newest show, Deserving Design - Vern designs as much with his heart as he does with his eye for design and architecture. He clearly loves what he does – as evidenced by a great big smile.  I know what makes me smile. A Vern Yip-designed space. Check out some of his latest creations:

    Vern deserves this honor! He is so likable and soooo talented. And yes, he has a huge heart!

    Other HGTV hosts I love would have to be Candice Olson, Lisa LaPorta and Tanya Nayak from Designed to Sell.

    My fiancee teaches math in an alternative school for teenagers who have been kicked out of every school program available and gives them one last chance at obtaining a high school diploma and is very successful at what he does. I am a registered nurse who most currently works at a hospice. I have been on disability for the past 2 months and lost my income due to a health issue. We are both 52 yrs young. The problem right now is that we are getting married this March 13 at his home. What is the least expensive way to make our backyard sparkle with excitement for our wedding?
