The 2017 Peter Salerno Inc. Christmas Party Photos
Peter Salerno Inc. held its 2017 Christmas party inside the beautiful confines of its award-winning design showroom in Wyckoff, New Jersey earlier this month. As usual, the event was attended by family, friends, associates, staff and a few very special (and very cute) guests!
2017 brought several new babies into the Peter Salerno Inc. family – Gabrielle Salerno-Mayer’s daughter Brielle and Nadya Russov’s daughter Olivia join Anthony Salerno’s daughter Jesse as the next generation of passionate designers! As you’d expect, these beautiful little ladies were the main attraction at this year’s Christmas festivities.
Of course, something that’s always a featured treat at Peter Salerno Inc. showroom gatherings is Peter Salerno’s culinary creations! For 2017, Peter made a few of his special sauces . The first two sauces was a bolognese sauce with three meats, sweet peas, shredded prosciutto and a splash of merlot. The second sauce was a metro sauce, featuring plum tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, prosciutto and heavy cream.
Peter Salerno was joined by some of his most cherished business associates at the Christmas 2017 party as well. Guests included longtime friend and photographer Peter Rymwid, Nicole Sakosits (owner of Stratta, the Tile Boutique), and staff from New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Peter is also blessed to be surrounded by his family this holiday season – his wife Tracy, son Anthony, daughter Gabrielle, daughter-in-law Eve, son-in-law Bryan, father Rosolino, and two beautiful grandchildren (the adorable Jesse and Brielle mentioned earlier).
There are many reasons for Peter Salerno and the Peter Salerno Inc. family to feel blessed during Christmas and the 2017 holiday season. The most important of all, as always, is the love and bond of family and friends, and the time and talents of Peter’s professional family.
Enjoy these exclusive photos from the 2017 Peter Salerno Inc. Christmas Party – we hope they add a little warmth and love to your day!
Best Food Gifts of 2017, According to NorthJersey.com
The season of stylish 2017 gift-giving trends continues here on “Design Your Lifestyle”! In this article, we feature another wonderful list of gifts for the 2017 holiday season – this time, centered around food, the kitchen and kitchen design.
The list, compiled by NorthJersey.com (part of the USA Today Network), is a fine collection of food items, pantry items, cutlery, glassware and sweets. Much like the previous list we featured, we selected Esther Davidowitz’s piece for its scope of options, selective nature and inclusivity (there’s a little something for everyone on your list). Ms. Davidowitz serves as the Food Editor for NorthJersey.com, and her expertise certainly shines here.
We’ll admit a little bias – as we’re based in northern New Jersey, this list is of particular appeal to us. Each item on the list is created by a local artisan, shop or chef in the northern NJ area. However, that doesn’t exclude the rest of you – a majority of these items are available to buy online, or to ship directly to you through the individual storefront or merchant.
The intent of this article is not only to inform holiday gift buyers, but to support local business and small businesses during the 2017 holiday season – a concept we absolutely love. As Esther Davidowitz explains in the opening to her article:
Of course you can show your appreciation with a bottle of wine or a bouquet of flowers, but if your host is a food lover (isn’t everyone?) consider giving a food gift. Not just any food, but rather a treat that isn’t just delicious but also made in North Jersey. This way you can nourish your host and support your local businesses simultaneously.
That’s the kind of smart, stylish thinking that we can get behind when it comes to 2017 Christmas shopping and holiday shopping in general, Esther!
Here are a few of our favorite gems from Ms. Davidowitz’s list of 2017 food gifts and kitchen gifts, as featured on NorthJersey.com.
Selections from Esther Davidowitz’s 2017 Food Gift Ideas
We know this one made you look twice – and that’s why we love it. Never mind that Pickle-licious is well-known in northern New Jersey as a go-to for pickle lovers – the store ships nationwide and offers a variety of pickle options in 3 and 6-month subscriptions. Pickle-icious offers subscriptions in quart and gallon sizes as well. What’s not to love?
Essie Spice Blends are a tremendous way to introduce yourself to the flavors of west Africa in a genuine way. Owner Essie Bartels grew up in Ghana and sources all of her core spice blend ingredients from west Africa directly. Essie’s spice blends have achieved enough acclaim to be available in northern NJ Shoprite and Whole Foods locations – so they certainly have a place in the kitchen of any adventurous, flavor-loving cook.
Avid readers of “Design Your Lifestyle” already know all about our obsession with EDGES Custom Cutlery, one of the finest unique, hand-crafted cutlery houses in the United States. Rather than talking about the EDGES collections again here, check out what we’ve said about them in the recent past!
Sook Pastry’s “The Notebook” isn’t just another chocolate gift assortment for the holidays. “It’s a gift of a lifetime,” owner Izzy Yanay told Esther Davidowitz in her article. Not only do you get a beautiful assortment of chocolate ganache pieces, but you receive them in a stunning faux-leather memory box that you can re-purpose after eating your treats!

Our Favorites: Design New Jersey’s 2017 “Great Gifts”
We’ve featured EDGES Custom Cutlery numerous times on our blog, so we were thrilled to see its inclusion on the Design New Jersey “Great Gifts” list. This list features the stunning Sommelier Collection, a set of stunning hand-crafted knives with handles made from the American White Oak of actual wine barrels.
The result is a world-class knife blade with a unique wood handle, and a backstory to share with its users for generations to come.

A Kitchen Designer Shares His 2017 Home Thanksgiving Photos
Peter Salerno Inc. is the most award-winning North American kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century. So it stands to reason that in the Salerno family home, Thanksgiving is a pretty big deal.
“[F]amily dinners are all about food, love and more food,” Peter Salerno quipped on social media during Thanksgiving 2017, posting a series of photos of his immediate and extended family sharing a sumptuous Thanksgiving dinner in their stunning Bergen County, New Jersey home.
Peter Salerno was joined for Thanksgiving by his wife Tracy, his father Rosolino and his mother-in-law Jo. Peter’s son Anthony was accompanied by his wife Eve and daughter Jesse, and Peter’s daughter Gabrielle came with her husband Brian and their daughter Brielle.
Peter was sure to thank the renowned Goffle Farms for the family’s delicious 18 pound turkey. The main course was accompanied by some outstanding side dishes, from the traditional (mashed and roasted potatoes, string beans) to the unconventional (a delicious lime and pineapple mold).
The meal also featured a beautiful and delicious pasta course – homemade pumpkin fettucine with a creamy sausage sauce. The fettucine was a huge hit with the family!
As the 2017 holiday season swings into full force, it’s important to take these moments to cherish those around you – both in your professional and personal lives. Peter Salerno takes great care to maintain a good work-life balance, and takes the time to nurture his work family alongside his own.
Thanksgiving 2017 was a pretty beautiful day for Peter Salerno and his family, but nothing compares to the warmth he felt in his own home. Peter sincerely hopes you had a blessed, safe and satisfying Thanksgiving full of love this year.
