Peter and his family were overjoyed to spend part of the walk with Aggie Roberts himself, an inspirational man whose love for his mother spawned this tremendous annual fundraiser.

“Every year this day comes and it gets a little more special for me,” Mr. Roberts said to The Ocean Star. “Like all of you, I’m here for a reason. I’m here for people that are fighting this everyday. I’m here for the memory of people.”

A Salute to Military Veterans & Service on Memorial Day | Peter Salerno’s Navy Roots

A Salute to Military Veterans & Service on Memorial Day | Peter Salerno’s Navy Roots

Peter Salerno and his team see Memorial Day as more than a time to celebrate, barbecue and enjoy the company of loved ones. It is a holiday to pause and remember the brave men and women of the United States Military, especially those who sacrificed their lives to protect the liberty, safety and future of the nation in which we are fortunate to live.

One of the most poignant and moving tribute videos we watched this Memorial Day weekend was uploaded to YouTube courtesy of Steve Strauss. A simple and impactful short film, Mr. Strauss’s video encapsulates all the things that make Memorial Day so important: sacrifice, liberty, patriotism, honor, duty and country.

Peter Salerno has been celebrated for his world-class custom kitchen and bath designs for decades. But nothing will ever replace the sense of personal pride and honor Peter feels as a veteran of the United States Navy, graduating from The Citadel and serving his commitment to the U.S. Navy in a tour of Europe and Western Asia. Peter proudly served as a Lieutenant in the United States Navy with the 6 Fleet on the U.S.S. Puget Sound, stationed out of Gaeta, Italy.

Much of Peter Salerno’s worldly sense of design was formed during his Naval commitment, especially during his time of service in Italy. Upon his return, Peter grew to become one of the most influential custom kitchen and bath designers in the world – but he also returned with a heightened sense of pride, honor, and commitment to this country and its veterans.

This Memorial Day, think about the military heroes and veterans in your life. How have you honored their service and sacrifice? What can you do to ensure their legacies are remembered? It is our civic duty to these brave servicemen and women that we take a moment each Memorial Day (and each day in general) to give thanks for their bravery and valor.

From all of us at Peter Salerno Inc., we hope you enjoyed a blessed, safe and thankful Memorial Day.

Our Stylish Weekend Getaway | Springtime in Washington, DC

Our Stylish Weekend Getaway | Springtime in Washington, DC

You can daydream about seeing the spring cherry blossoms in Washington, DC – but there’s nothing quite like seeing them in person.

Washington, DC, is a remarkable place to visit any time of year. Springtime in America’s capital, however, is particularly gorgeous. Pops of white and pink dot the landscape of Washington in March and early April, adding a sense of renewal and wonder to the landscape.

Peak bloom time for cherry blossoms in the Washington, DC, area is generally late March into the first week of April. Tracy and Peter Salerno (of Peter Salerno Inc.) chose the first weekend in April 2019 to enjoy the occasion, and the resulting photos of the cherry blossoms, U.S. Capitol building, and Mount Vernon (among others) are just a taste of the beauty the Salernos experienced.

Cherry blossom season in Washington, DC, has become a bona fide event in the city, with the annual Cherry Blossom Festival drawing 1.5 million visitors over a 4 week span. There’s even an official Cherry Blossom Watch online for you to check the bloom season, upload and share cherry blossom photos, and plan your spring trip to Washington, DC.

The tradition of cherry blossoms in Washington, DC, dates back to 1912 and a partnership between Japan and the United States. The first cherry trees were planted on March 27, 1912, in West Potomac Park. The first official Cherry Blossom Festival was held in 1934, and the tradition has (quite literally) blossomed into the most beautiful annual spring event in the United States.

Whether it’s the mythical story of George Washington chopping down the cherry tree, the trees’ symbolism of America’s relationship with Japan, or simply the beauty of white and pink blossoms dotting America’s capital, the draw of the National Cherry Blossom Festival cannot be overstated.

Tracy and Peter Salerno’s visit to Washington, DC, featured a sunrise cherry blossom photography session around the U.S. Capitol, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument. The Salernos also took a day trip to Mount Vernon, which offered a glance back into American history and gorgeous views of the Potomac River.

If you truly want the prime Washington cherry blossom experience, it’s important to keep track of peak bloom times on an annual basis. While the National Cherry Blossom Festival takes place for 4 weeks, the peak bloom time is a much shorter window. Make sure to consult Cherry Blossom Watch for all the yearly details, and take advantage of an early morning (or two) to get the best photo opportunities of these gorgeous blossoms in the light of sunrise.

We promise you will leave Washington, DC, feeling inspired and fresh – and ready to create vivid design masterpieces of your very own.
