about the host:
One room at a time, Vern Yip is designing his way across America, having knocked down walls and made over countless homes and restaurants during his four seasons on two design television shows as well as through his private practice. In addition to hosting Deserving Design, Vern will return as a judge on the second season of HGTV's Design Star. Whatever he does, his award-winning work has a distinct flair that reflects his expertise as both an architectural and interior designer.Ê

Yip runs his own design company in Atlanta, Vern Yip Designs and www.vernyip.com. His creations and room transformations range in budget from the notoriously frugal showcased on television to eight-figure projects for high-end clients nationwide, including special event design for one of 2006's highest-profile Oscar parties. Regardless of the budget, his design calling card is his attention to detail married with precise, clean-lined interiors balanced with a sense of warmth.

Having characterized himself as the classic overachiever, Yip and his projects have amassed an impressive list of design awards including the 2003 Distinguished Southerner Award, Southern Living magazine; 2000 Southeast Designer of the Year; Fusebox Restaurant, Atlanta, 1999 Best New Restaurant; and DeuxPlex Bistro and Night Club, Atlanta, 1999 Best New Night Club. In addition, he has been prominently featured in various publications such as Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times and USA Today. He is frequently seen on television shows such as Today, The Early Show, Oprah, CNN and Live! With Regis and Kelly.
