Frank Fontana's Biography

Frank Fontana Speaker Profile:

Interior designer and life style expert, Frank Fontana, is the host and lead designer for the Chicago-based version of HGTVs longest running, top rated design show, “Design on a Dime.” Frank Fontana is also one of the few host/designers simultaneously appearing in two HGTV shows at once, as well as an array of network specials. In addition to taking the reins of Design on a Dime, he is also the lead designer of HGTVs Takeover My Makeover, featured designer for the HGTVs Change the World Campaign and the HGTV Christmas Special Decked for the Holidays.

Many recognize Frank Fontana as the real life Italian Stallion of the lifestyle world, and underdog winner of ABC Television Networks 2004 Martha Stewart-themed reality competition The Great Domestic Showdown, where he won the entire competition and launched his now booming television career.

In his mid 20’s, Fontana, a student of real world design, started his own event design company where he created theme parties and designed nightclub decor throughout the country. After a strategic move to Los Angeles Fontana found himself producing major events and creating cutting edge interiors for many in the entertainment industry elites, Fortune 500 companies, as well as Hollywood celebrities including a few parties for Halle Berry, Dennis Quaid, Jeff Goldblum, and many more.

Today, Fontana is best known for combining his innovative vision learned from his years of event and commercial design with traditional home design basics, making him one of the most versatile and fresh new designers to explode on the lifestyle scene today.

Frank Fontana is also a featured columnist; his monthly column can be read in the Chicago Sun-Times Friday edition. In addition he is a contributing expert to publications and media outlets nationwide.
