2017 Celebrities & Speakers
EXPERT HOST: Matt Muenster, Licensed Contractor and Designer – DIY Network’s Bath Crashers
Licensed contractor Matt Muenster sees every house project, whether he’s ripping apart dated bathrooms using the latest construction technology or completely gutting his own kitchen, as a chance to use his clever ideas to achieve great design while integrating earth-friendly elements. Matt earned his degree in interior design from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. He initially got his feet wet designing restaurants and casinos and even worked on the Angolan Project in Africa. Eventually, his fervor for design shifted to the residential sector. His professional experience includes high-end interior design, and he gets an adrenaline rush every time he transforms a boring bathroom into a fantastic one on DIY Network’s Bath Crashers.
Matt will be appearing Friday, January 13 at 7 pm, Saturday, January 14 at 2 & 5 pm and Sunday, January 15 at 1 pm.
One room at a time, Vern Yip is designing his way across America, having knocked down walls and made over countless homes and restaurants during his four seasons on TLC's Trading Spaces and during his over ten years as one of HGTV’s most recognizable designers.
Vern's past HGTV projects include four seasons of his own show titled Deserving Design with Vern Yip and two seasons as host and designer of HGTV Urban Oasis. His HGTV work also includes eight seasons of HGTV’s top-rated prime-time series HGTV Design Star and several seasons of Bang for Your Buck, where he served as the show’s host and design expert. Vern’s most recent HGTV project, Live in Vern’s House, chronicled the building of his dream beach home.
Vern runs his own design company in Atlanta, Vern Yip Designs. With an undergraduate education from The University of Virginia, a M.B.A. and Master of Architecture from The Georgia Institute of Technology, and a honorary Doctorate from the Savannah College of Art and Design, Vern has used his varied educational background to build a distinguished business. His creations and room transformations range in budget from the notoriously frugal showcased on television to eight-figure projects for high-end clients nationwide. Regardless of the budget, Vern's design calling card is his attention to detail married with precise, clean-lined interiors balanced with a sense of warmth.
Recognized on the street, in home improvement centers, and in public venues across America, Vern has been prominently featured in publications such as Entertainment Weekly, People, The New York Times, and USA Today. He is frequently seen on NBC's TODAY show, CNN, and Live! with Kelly. In addition to being a New York Times Bestselling Author, Vern is also a travel and design columnist for The Washington Post, a regular contributor to HGTV Magazine and just landed the October cover of Traditional Home. Vern’s first book, titled Vern Yip’s Design Wise: Your Smart Guide to a Beautiful Home just debuted, spending nearly a week as an Amazon #1 Bestseller and in the overall Amazon Top 15, and landing at #2 on The New York Times Bestseller list.
