Michael Biondo is a fun, energetic, guy with a great sense of style and a no-pretense way of looking at life.
Below is a brief rundown of Michael's career to date as an Interior Designer, Personal Sylist and Event Producer...
In the late 80's, Michael began his career at Macy’s as one of the iconic store's first male Personal Shoppers.
In the early 90's, Michael moved to the quaint historic village of New Hope, PA where he owned and operated two boutiques which featured
his elegant evening wear line, Michael Biondo Couture. During his eight years in New Hope, Michael lovingly designed his circa 1845 homes interior. Both he and his home were featured in a Home and Garden Television (HGTV) show detailing Michael's concepts of Gracious Living.
In 2000, Michael moved back to Manhattan where he lived in West Greenwich Village and worked as a Lifestyle Designer to socialite and celebrity clientele.
(Michael's big NYC break hit quickly when he was featured on "Page 6" of the New York Post for a private event he produced for a celebrity guest.)
In 2008, Michael came to SW Florida to design a home for a client whom he had previously worked with on their US Virgin Islands residence. Michael fell in love with the area and continues to live and work, happily and peacefully, in Naples and frequently travels to work with his clients around the country.
Michael specializes in making your vacation home or primary residence an ideal oasis. In the capacity of designer and client representative, Michael provides peace of mind to clients who live out of the area by monitoring and reporting on progress of your renovation or home building project. Michael collaborates directly with his client's chosen architect to develop a precise floor plan and Scope of Work, and provides direction while overseeing the contractor and other licensed professionals during the renovation. Michael treats each project as if it were his own home with an attention to detail that is unsurpassed. Michael selects and oversees installation of client approved furniture, household accessories and kitchen items once construction is complete. Upon request, Michael and his team will stock refrigerators with his clients favorite food, beverages, wine and Champagne, and will also press, steam and organize his clients wardrobes in luxury custom closets designed by Michael. Every detail will be watched over with Michael's precise eye.
Michael strives to live in a state of gratitude and firmly believes in philanthropy to help those in less fortunate circumstances.
In addition, Michael always welcomes requests for fundraising Gift Certificates from his design firm for your registered charity. Michael also welcomes the opportunity to help where needed in the community and beyond.
As Michael says, “I’m so fortunate and grateful to have made a career doing what I love to do, and I look forward to working with new clients as well as my existing clients on their projects and design needs. Giving back to charities, while creating new and exciting designs, is the ultimate win-win!
I am truly a blessed man!”
Every month, Michael will feature a reputable charity with a direct link to their website so we can learn together about their cause and how we may help. Together,with love and understanding, we can build a better world.
