Antonio Ballatore, the Season 4 champion of HGTV Design Star, is ready to bring his distinct and edgy design aesthetic to HGTV audiences. With his new series, The Antonio Project, Antonio wows viewers with the same unexpected design perspective that the HGTV Design Star judges loved.

Antonio, a New York native, believed he would be a rock star by age 40. While pursuing his dreams of music stardom, he spent time between gigs learning how to build houses. This experience led him to design restaurants and clubs in Manhattan and, later, design sets for world-famous photographers, including Annie Leibovitz and David LaChapelle.

Antonio resides in Los Angeles with his English bulldog, Chewie.
