[What’s the next ‘desirable gray’? Vern Yip of HGTV takes your questions.

Vern Yip, who runs his own design company in Atlanta, became nationally known during his four seasons remaking homes on the original run of TLC’s “Trading Spaces.” He has been on HGTV shows, including “HGTV Design Star” and “Bang for Your Buck,” for more than 10 years. He also designs products, including fabrics, wallcoverings and sheets. He is working on his third book, which will be released next spring, and also on a new show to debut in the fall. He is scheduled to appear Feb. 24 and 25 at the Capital Remodel & Garden Show.


His vibrant style reflects his love of travel, something he wrote about in his 2019 book “Vern Yip’s Vacation at Home: Design Ideas for Creating Your Everyday Getaway.”


Ask Yip about the best ways to incorporate favorite trips in your home design, the key things to avoid when displaying travel treasures, how to make a bathroom feel like a spa, or anything related to home decorating.
