Deserving Design is a half-hour show on the Home and Garden TV network, starring Vern Yip. In each episode an inspirational family or individual is visited by Yip, who show him two different rooms they would like to have redesigned. Yip will pick one of the rooms to do and have the person or family aid in its design. However, Yip always surprises them by secretly redoing the other room, usually while covertly having them offer input into it, or by giving them some other special gift.
New episodes currently air on HGTV each Wednesday night at 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time.
Formerly a designer on The Learning Channels
's Trading Spaces
, Vern Yip has acted as a judge on HGTV's "The Next Design Star
" for both the 2006 and 2007 competitions. Deserving Design
is Yip's first solo show and he considers it to be his "best work yet." The idea for the show came to Yip after he made an appearance on Oprah
where he helped do a home project for a waitress and her mother, and he hopes it will both entertain and inspire viewers.
