this guy, antonio ballatore. he has a show on HGTV, called the antonio treatment, which i have quickly become obsessed with. i guess he's been on tv for a while, but i only recently discovered him. i tried to find a photo of him with his awesome glasses, but this will do. isn't he handsome? his decorating is also totally fucking insane, and i mean that in the best way possible. his rooms look bizarre and beautiful, and he's got what i think of as a coney island aesthetic. plus, he's tall, he can obviously grow a beard, and he's got a super cool dog. swoon alert!
just check out some of these awesome rooms for yourself, and try to tell me they aren't ridiculously wonderful. i can only hope some of my house looks so good someday!
