Antonio Ballatore rose to fame as the winner of HGTV Design Star season 4. He was an LA set designer before he went on the show, but held on to rock star dreams beforehand. He learned how to build houses in between doing gigs and this paved the way for him to design clubs and restaurants in Manhattan. He then worked with famed photographers Annie Leibovitz and David LaChappelle.
Since winning Design Star, Antonio Bellatore headlined his own show on the network. He hosted The Antonio Treatment and eventually founded his own design studio, Studio 413. He even teamed up with industry professionals to form the lifestyle agency The Ingredient Group.
