A few weeks ago, our design staff was lucky enough to be introduced to Vern Yip’s new line for Trend… BY VERN HIMSELF! Vern is a talented interior designer/reality TV star/entrepreneur/lighting designer… you name it! For those HGTV fans, he was on the original Trading Spaces, and has since gone on to expand his brand into a fabric line for Fabricut. We were all presently surprised by his down-to-earth demeanor and willingness to meet with us to go over the line. He was interested in our feedback, and being that he’s made Rosemary Beach his second home, it’s refreshing to have a contact that is right in our backyard. While discussing our occupation as designers, Vern reminded us all that we are in the lucky minority who do what we love, and are able to make a profession out of it. It’s always good to be reminded of things like that!
In the meantime, enjoy these photos from Vern’s presentation! I can’t wait to use these beautiful new fabrics on a design job!
