I just had the awesome opportunity to visit the Junior League of Huntsville's Girls' Night Out and meet (Drumroll please! Cue trumpets!) Vern Yip!!! Not only is he a Design Star (literally, he judged the HGTV show of the same name), former Trading Spaces guru, and host of Deserving Design - he is also a wonderfully gracious man. The ladies gathered all had a fabulous time as he shared stories and more than a few great decorating tips. He also generously paused to talk with Sanity Fair, and I'm delighted to be able to share some of his thoughts with you here. Look for more to come (plus pics!) tomorrow! Until then, this stunning table spread by Vern will have to hold you over - and, you can catch his show tomorrow on HGTV at 2 p.m., EST.
