Yesterday, I hung my show at the Westin Verasa Napa (what a beautiful hotel!). I lined the paintings up, three still in bubble wrap, and three of us were contemplating the best way to work the hanging system, when a fellow with a familiar face walked past us – and, as he walked past, took a second look back at the paintings. It was interior designer Vern Yip, whose designs I enjoyed watching Trading Spaces some years back. He has his own show now, Deserving Design, and is a judge for HGTV Design Star. An auspicious beginning for the show? You never know who passes through Napa....
