Trading Spaces

I am so far behind on the interesting blogging, having been immersed in house stuff.

I went to a home show before the move to get some ideas and to meet Mr. Vern Yip, my favorite designer from Trading Spaces. He has another show on HGTV that I just found out about - Design Star - which starts again this summer. Did I mention he's also a UVA grad? :)

Vern is MY favorite too! Love his Feng Shui! And ... he's a HOTTY! ... y'know... you two look MIGHTY cute together in that picture! ;)

OOOOOHHHHH - I'm so jealous!! His finished room was always far better than the other! His style is exactly what we're going for. So far we've tackled the master bedroom.

I guess all the other rooms will come to fruition later. After all the boxes are unpacked. Or thrown away.

This will be later. Much. Later.

I haven't seen the show in a long time (the cable company came and took our extra channels) but before that the other designers were trying to see how horrible they could make a room it seemed. Remember Hildi's straw, feather & record rooms?
But back when I watched, I really liked Vern & Frank's rooms. They both seemed to really care about what the homeowners wanted for their rooms.

You and Vern make a very handsome couple...is he married & straight? hee hee

OMG! I haven't watched Trading Spaces in forever (stupid grad school... stupid thesis... stupid lack of time to watch T.V. so we got rid of the cable, cause hey, who was watching it anyways?) but I LOVE Vern with the intensity of a thousand firey volcanoes! Love him!

And put up pictures of the new house, woman!

AND, last one promise, can I say Pooh is so cute? A-DOR-ABLE! I love the picture of Sad Pooh in the Bag...

I love Vern, I love almost everything he does. Almost as much as I hate Albany right about now.

Hails said...

I have absolutely no idea who he is, but he is a bit of a hottie!

AMANDA said...

Vern is the man! I always love his designs.

Katherine said...

Wow, I'm so jealous. I LOVE Vern. He always does the most elegant, sophisticated designs while the other wackos are sticking hay and moss all over the walls. Way cool.

Teena said...

I have no idea who he is (I barely know that I have that channel ... ha!) but it's a great shot of you two :)
