Every year, millions watch in anticipation while miles of twinkling lights are purposely hung, tons of scented garland are deliberately strung, and thousands of sparkling ornaments are strategically placed as the White House is magically transformed for the Christmas holiday. And, it is none other than Antonio Cabrera, official designer for the White House, who makes sure that no detail slips undetected as he offers up his absolute talent and professionalism for a Christmas done in grandiose proportions.
For the second consecutive year, Michelle Obama personally invited Antonio back to the most prestigious address to decorate the White House’s largest space—the East Room located on the state floor—which is used for entertaining, press conferences, and official ceremonies. Cabrera states, “I feel so honored to decorate this room because it is so huge and it is also where the iconic painting of George Washington resides.” (Take a brief White House Tour to see the East Room that Antonio decorated for the most prominent home in America.)
With untainted optimism, Antonio did not simply hope his way to the top—he earned it. He is a rare example of hard work, perseverance, and passion as he demonstrates his ability to crisscross his masterful talents—from everything interior design, floral design, and decorating—all done with expert precision. His perfectly honed skillset, over-the-top creativity, and charming repertoire, have captured the attention of the First Lady, as well as the famed and royal who expect nothing but the best when it comes to creating intriguing environments for their living spaces as well as their elite soirées.
From immigrant to illustrious citizen, Antonio is fervently paving the way for the Hispanic community as he shines as the epitome of the American Dream. “I want to be an example of an American citizen who works with consistency in all that I do in order to realize and achieve my goals,” he said. It is obvious to everyone who knows Antonio that he exemplifies all the qualities of a natural leader in his quest for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
