Antonio Ballatore started his lifelong love for art and design growing up in a house full of his parent’s creative work. Since then he has pulled unusual inspiration for every project he has taken on. From playing in punk rock and metal bands in New York to his early set design work with acclaimed photographers Annie Leibovitz and David LaChapelle, he has always found excitement in pushing the boundaries of traditional design.
After winning season 4 of HGTV’s “Design Star” Antonio landed his own show on the same network. Now in it’s 3rd season, “The Antonio Treatment” has allowed Antonio to give exposure and collaborate with the freshest artists and craftsmen around LA and nationwide. His outside-of-the-box approach to design has brought incredible results to all of his residential and commercial work. He was lucky to grow up surrounded by inspiration and enjoys the opportunity he now has to give inspiration to the people around him. With many more projects in the works outside the show, he doesn’t plan to stop pushing the envelope any time soon.
