Design TV favorite Peter Fallico is back! This time around he’s helping families fix their spaces to suit the way they actually live. They love their homes and love their neighborhoods, so moving isn’t an option. But there’s something that simply doesn’t work. Maybe it’s an overcrowded kitchen. Or a new baby that leaves them one bedroom short. Or a front entrance bottleneck crammed with junk. With a team of experts in tow, Peter takes on a new challenge each week, giving one lucky family a place they can truly call a Home to Keep.

PETER FALLICO (Host)
"Home to Keep" is the newest design series for Peter Fallico in the successful “Home to” brand. In "Home to Keep" Peter helps families re-purpose a space in their home that doesn’t actually work with the way they live in it.
Peter has been on TV and in magazines for over ten years guiding people through their design challenges but his love for decor began at an early age. As a teen, he painted, replaced light fixtures and changed blinds in his parents’ home. Peter was already in love with transformation and every room was like a blank canvas and met by the possibility of improvement.
Peter’s first home gave him the financial freedom to inquire into a variety of careers around decor and design as began to hone his down-to-earth, do-it-yourself style by doing weekend workshop projects for Style at Home magazine. He first debuted on HGTV as a guest host on "This Small Space" where he introduced viewers to practical, yet stylish do-it-yourself projects, which led him to hosting his own show, "Home To Go". In 2004 while hosting the next incarnation of the “Home to” series, "Home To Stay", Peter purchased a third home. Peter’s precarious undertaking paid off and he created a beautiful home that he was able to sell to happy new homeowners in just two years for an impressive profit and led to two seasons of "Home To Flip".
Now with his team of experts in tow, Peter takes on a new challenge every week, working through different space challenges and giving each lucky family a space that will truly make it a "Home to Keep".
