One of Design Star's stars is coming to Dallas. Vern Yip spent four seasons on TLC's Trading Spaces and also did a little time on NBC's Home Intervention. He owns his own design firm in Atlanta and after all his years of screentime assisting clueless homeowners, we like to think he sips mint juleps on a screened-in porch while fanning himself and saying, "I do declare." We're fairly confident he does none of these things, but it paints a pretty picture, doesn't it? And that's what Vern is all about. His design aesthetic will blow your mind so if you're into that sort of thing (and we know you are), get ready to meet the master. Yip is offering design tips (bring a photo if you have a challenge), signing autographs and being generally adorable all night long. Your presence alone will save you 10 percent off any single item from I.O. Metro the entire night. See the Vern Yip Wednesday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at I.O. Metro Fairview located at 133 Fairview Station Parkway inside The Village at Fairview Shopping Center. Or catch him Thursday, May 19, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at I.O. Metro Dallas located at 5301 Alpha Road, Suite 34 near the Dallas Galleria. Visit vernyip.com or io-metro.com.
