Danilo Acquisto chats to us about hosting the new season of Win A Home Competition

We chatted to one of the show’s hosts, Danilo about his role on hosting such a popular series:

How did you feel when it was announced you would host the show?

After hosting last year for the first time, I fell in love with how this series changes lives. So being asked to host again this year gave me such great joy.

How does it feel being around so many strong women everyday on Afternoon Express? 

It’s great. I have older sisters now and I feel like I provide a nice balance on the show. It’s been a great fit.

Do you own a home?

I am all about investing early. At the moment I am investing in shares and keeping my assets relatively liquid. It makes more financial sense to rent until my new business is settled and running.

What is your favourite room in your home and why?

I’m a kitchen kind of guy. I love spending time creating yummy treats and letting my Italian flair come out. I find it almost therapeutic to cook and entertain friends and family.

Who is your interior design style icon? 
I am a big fan of Philippe Stark and his minimalism.
Where is the best place to find unique furniture? 

If I am ever looking for great quality pieces that are on trend and bespoke, I always go to Weylandts (in fact our couch on Afternoon Express is from there). I’m also a huge fan of OKHA Interiors.

What would make someone stand out in the Win a Home competition? 

Interior Design is all about balance. You need to constantly balance budgets with innovation, quality and personality. Making a name for yourself is going to be about how well you can compromise without compromising your style if that makes any sense? So from the designers point of view, we are looking for innovation and smart workers. The viewers on the other hand are a lucky draw. So, whoever wins the over R3 million home will be one lucky viewer.

What motivates you? 
I want to be the best version of myself. I want to leave an impact knowing I gave every facet of my life my all. So every day there are opportunities to be motivated to be better, live better, eat better, love better.
