Fans of HGTV recognize Frank as the face of several hit shows for the network, including “Takeover my Makeover” and “Design on a Dime,” one of HGTV’s longest-running and highest-rated programs. Frank is also a published interiors expert with his top-selling DIY book “Frank Fontana’s Dirty Little Secrets of Design.”


A regular contributor to a multitude of national media outlets, Frank’s tips and ideas have been featured on OPRAH.com, the TODAY show and Open House, an award-winning NBC design show. He currently hosts popular radio programs for both WGN radio 720 AM in Chicago and Craftsman.


Frank’s company, Frank Fontana Home Solutions Inc., launched several branded products in 2014, including a custom line of blinds and shades for Eddie Z’s and BlindsandDrapery.com.


Most recently, Frank teamed up with the International Housewares Association (“The Home Authority”) for its consumer marketing initiative, Inspired Home—an online resource that delivers fresh content on emerging home trends and housewares products. “Frank’s Five” will be a regular feature on the site, highlighting Frank’s favorite housewares.


Additionally, Frank will be spotlighting the latest product innovations at the 76th annual International Home + Housewares Show later this year.

Fontana’s vision was simple: a bedroom should be a retreat that stimulates the senses and tickles the imagination, while projecting the feeling of serenity and balance! With the room’s grounding undertones of rustic wood elements, Fontana and his team contrast glamorous finishes with layers of rich texture to create a warm, yet stylish motif awash in monochromatic gray tones. A clash of metallic wall coverings, gray wood planking, mirrored furnishings and sensible styling make this room a perfect Midwest meets city dream. Custom window treatments, custom hide rug, one of kind art piece accents and comfortable seating round out the show-stopping design.
