Design Your Lifestyle Turns 5: A Look Back!
This month, we celebrate our fifth anniversary at Design Your Lifestyle. We’re so grateful to our readership, contributors and especially our parent company, Peter Salerno Inc. Without everyone’s support, this ‘little vision’ of ours wouldn’t have become as well-read as it is today!
Our first article was a simple-yet-delicious recipe for Rosemary Lemonade (which you can still find here). We followed that up with an exclusive interview that’s still one of our favorites to date – with Ren Miller, editor-in-chief of Design NJ Magazine.
Since then, we’ve published over 450 articles about topics ranging from kitchen design to coffee makers, bath design to backsplash tile, classic Italian recipes to modern transitional design. We’ve benefited from the travels and experiences of Peter Salerno, CMKBD, as he drew design inspiration from travels to the French countryside, Moscow, and a myriad of world destinations. It was also quite a privilege to get Peter’s VIP “insider access” to renowned home design trade shows and conventions like KBIS (the Kitchen & Bath Industry Showcase, hosted by the NKBA) and the Architectural Digest Design Show.
We’ve also gotten exclusive information from some of the most reliable sub-contractors, specialists, designers and vendors in the custom interior, home and kitchen design industries, as well as some of Peter Salerno Inc.’s most trusted business partners. In the past, we’ve leaned heavily on the expertise and experience of people like Craig Kmiecik of Purcell Murray, Mary A. Moulds of Miele USA, and members of Peter’s staff.
And then there’s the stunning kitchen design, bath design, wine cellar and showroom photography, much of which is attributable to Peter Rymwid – one of the finest photographers of interiors in the world.
All this has been interlaced with fun recipes, tips and tricks for purchasing cutlery, appliances and range hoods, and exclusive looks at Peter Salerno Inc.’s world-class, award-winning design showroom.
We hope you’ve had half as much fun following Design Your Lifestyle over the last five years as we’ve had creating content for you – now, let’s get back to business. On to the next five years!
