Vern Yip to Appear at BEST of Fall Home Show

Organizers of the BEST of Fall Home Show, presented by Teeters Windows & Remodeling, announced today that HGTV star and interior designer Vern Yip will bring his makeover magic to Columbus when he appears at the show on Saturday, Sept. 13.

Yip, host of HGTV’s “Deserving Design,” a judge on HGTV’s “Design Star” and one of the original designers on TLC’s “Trading Spaces,” will be the headliner on Saturday at 1 and 4 p.m. when the popular BEST of Fall Home Show returns to the Ohio Expo Center, Sept. 12-14.

An award-winning interior designer based in Atlanta who has been featured on “Today” and “Oprah,” Yip is known for his uncluttered designs and his ability to make over a room on any budget. His style balances clean lines with an inviting sense of warmth, and he’s not afraid to combine several furnishing styles.

The annual BEST of Fall Home Show introduces central Ohio consumers to the best ideas in decorating, entertaining, landscaping and home renovation, just in time for fall and the holiday season. With more than 300 exhibits and attractions, the show is the place to scope out new décor colors and flourishes, gather money-saving tips for winterizing, shop for antiques and accessories, and find the local contractor or business to help achieve your home improvement dreams.

Special interest areas include the Designers Showcase, Landscapes That Inspire, Furniture & Furnishings, The Corner Antique and Gourmet Marketplace. Sunday is Kids Day, when the youngest visitors can enjoy special activities, presented by The CW at WWHO53-TV.

The show opens Friday, September 12, and runs through Sunday, September 14, at the Ohio Expo Center. Show hours are Friday Noon – 9 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. – 8 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door. Children 12 and younger are admitted free.
