After 10 successful years in the fashion industry, Michael Moloney turned his unique and luxurious design concepts to homes in 1990. Blending the new and the practical with the timeworn charm of things "not exactly perfect" has been Michael Moloney's look from the beginning of his diverse design career. This Palos Verdes, California native set-out to combine his love of shopping, knowledge of design and entrepreneurial skills to open two high-profile home design stores just south of Los Angeles. Moloney combined vintage treasures found at flea markets all over the world, new accessories and gift ware. Maison Luxe, one of the stores opened by Michael and located in Manhattan Beach, California, sells unique and plush home furnishings to customers like Goldie Hawn, Candace Bergin and Rachel Hunter.

His eclectic, fresh approach to decorating took off and soon Moloney became synonymous with spectacular interior design, working with celebrities such as Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, Ryan Seacrest, among other projects with Walt Disney Co. & the NFL.

Moloney's television credits include, "Good Morning America," "The View," "EXTRA!", "Greg Behrendt," "The Wayne Brady Show," "Entertainment Tonight," "Designers' Challenge," "Less Than Perfect," "Access Hollywood" and more. You can still catch him on episodes of "Clean House" on the Style Network.

Because of his unwavering good taste and sharp eye for fashion, Moloney is a popular choice as a guest speaker or special correspondent for top entertainment shows. Moloney has recently co-hosted "Fashion Wrap" on the TV Guide Channel with Joan & Melissa Rivers. Michael has also made appearances on "EXTRA" as a special assignment correspondent and has co-hosted the Chicago Thanksgiving Day Parade.

This is Moloney's fifth season on ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," and this year he hopes to bring more of an environmental flair to his design by incorporating more 'green' elements and environmentally-friendly products into each home.

Moloney feels so blessed to be a part of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." "This show is truly amazing in that it gives people hope and a new lease-on-life - I am so grateful to be part of something so special. My job as a designer is to make each home reflect these families' personalities and lifestyles. It is so rewarding for me to use my design skills to make dreams come true for these families," Moloney says.

Moloney enjoys spending time in his Los Angeles home with his precious pooch, 'Rique the Design Dog' – his adorable Jack Russle-Chiauaaua mix who has developed quite a knack for design himself. Michael also enjoys entertaining family and friends at his second home in Palm Springs California, an architectural landmark decorated with his personal touches – this beautiful home has been featured in People, OK and In Touch Magazines.

Just as Rique the Design Dog is near and dear to his heart, so are the many charities he lends his time and talent to. Last year, Moloney hosted the annual "Paws for Style" event that showcases dogs dressed in outfits from famous fashions icons to raise money for the Animal Medical Centers in California and New York.

Look for Moloney's work in many upcoming venues, including a boutique hotel project and a collection of home furnishings.
