Let's just get this out right at the beginning.... I LOVE all things HOME. I have since I was a kid. At five, I started dragging furniture around my parent’s small Chicago apartment in order to change things up… since leaning and pushing on the walls didn't seem to work. At nine, I was using my paper-route money to buy wallpaper, molding and a saw. That later would become a chair rail and duck wallpaper in my bedroom. Don't ask. It was my country-kitchen phase --- in my bedroom! A design geek was born. It's safe to say that I have never stopped designing, building, wallpapering and all other sorts of home doings since. I truly believe that the way you feel about your home and your space can change your life! I've seen it happen to countless families across the country and I've seen it in my own life. Along the way in my world of design, a friend in the TV world suggested I do a show. I resisted for about two years until he and his wife wore me down. Since then, I've done more than 10 series and specials on networks like TLC, LIFETIME, STYLE & HGTV… and have appeared on The TODAY Show, CNN, TYRA and countless other morning shows. All of this has been with the idea of helping people redefine their lives through design… without spending a fortune. It is one of my favorite things to do! There is power in the way you live. Creating angelo:HOME has been a dream of mine since the wall-leaning days. It combines everything I love and what I am privileged to do. The goal is simple: Everyone can have style (and for less)! It’s about having affordable, fun and easy-to-do things… good stuff that you not only want, but also can actually afford. Growing up, my family had very little… and designing our home was not at the top of the grocery list. I wanted to get into design to help people realize their own dream homes without sacrificing anything else. Making your space the best it can be should never feel overwhelming or like it's a luxury. The angelo:HOME collection of stylish and affordable furniture is committed to quality, value and ease. From the handcrafted details to the no-fuss assembly (many times none needed at all) to the high-end looks at amazingly affordable prices, angelo:HOME has been designed to make putting your home together effortless and full of style. I want to help you realize your dreams however you want to live.

It’s Not All About The TV

June 14, 2014 |

Let’s be clear.

I love television.

It’s a box of magic.

If it wasn’t for TV, my early life would feel like one long, sad loop resembling a Charles Dickens novel.

As an immigrant, I learned how to speak English … Read More

Easy, Simple Valentine DIY

February 9, 2014 |

  1. Select the flowers you want to work with–I find the ones that drape a bit work better than the kind that will stick straight up.
  2. Use two clear vases, with one being slightly slimmer in … Read More
