A Look Back | 5th Anniversary of Angular Traditional Kitchen Design

The content of this article is heavily drawn from an article we first published in 2014. The kitchen design featured is entitled “The Angles Are In the Details”, from award-winning custom kitchen designer Peter Salerno Inc. of Wyckoff, New Jersey.

Fresh off his award for 2014 Best Traditional Kitchen from Signature Kitchens & Baths Magazine, Peter Salerno and his team went right back to work on a new kitchen design. This time, Peter Salerno Inc. provided a Franklin Lakes, New Jersey home with a gorgeous traditional kitchen design, full of classic design features, custom elements and angular details.

The traditional kitchen design, which is featured on Peter Salerno Inc.’s Houzz page, features a gorgeous expansive center island, custom Maestro Rosolino beaded inset cabinets, and a one-of-a-kind custom reclaimed tin hood (only available through Peter Salerno Inc.)

It’s been 5 years since Peter Salerno Inc. created The Jewel Box, a kitchen design that won the 2014 NKBA Best Small Kitchen Award and was named the 2014 People’s Choice Kitchen by HGTV.

It was the third time since 2010 that Peter Salerno has been honored with a NKBA Best Kitchen award. This kitchen was especially dear to Peter Salerno and his staff, and the design (which is being referred to as the “Jewel Box”) is being lauded as exquisite by a vast array of interior design and kitchen design media outlets.

The 2014 Best Kitchen, Small Kitchen Category award was presented by the NKBA at the annual KBIS convention in Las Vegas in February 2014. Due to inclement weather, Peter Salerno and his team were unable to reach the 2014 KBIS convention, so it was an amazing surprise to be honored with this award.

This kitchen has also been listed as a top 10 People’s Choice for Small Kitchen by HGTV, an honor which is also precious to Peter Salerno and his kitchen design team. The fact that this kitchen design is loved by not just the owner but the interior design industry and fans of kitchen design is both flattering and humbling.

See These Beautiful Kitchen Design Photos: 4 Year Later!

Four years ago, Peter Salerno Inc. installed a custom kitchen in the home of the Carrolls. It was a privilege to work in their home and a pleasure to call them clients.

The work was one of Peter Salerno’s favorite kitchen design projects, and Peter had to check in 4 years later to see how the Carrolls made the kitchen design their very own. Even the master craftsman himself was blown away by how wonderfully his clients made use of (and maintained) their kitchen space.

The Carrolls’ kitchen design incorporated many of Peter Salerno Inc.’s signature design elements. A custom range hood made from reclaimed metals adorns the over space. A handcrafted custom kitchen island accents the center of the design, complete with bold island accent lighting (a hot design trend executed with a classic flair). And the custom cabinetry, a cornerstone of Salerno kitchen design, looks as beautiful today as it did when it was crafted.

The kitchen design comes complete with a beautiful black La Cornue range, one of the finest kitchen ranges in the world today. The range is backed by a beautiful custom backsplash, and the complementary floor and wall tile add a large measure of custom class and refined charm to the kitchen space.

Michael and Francine Carroll greatly enjoy sharing this kitchen space with their family and friends, and it is truly the heart of their home.

But words can only say so much – please take a moment to look at these beautiful kitchen design photos from inside the Carrolls’ home, and see for yourself why it is one of Peter Salerno’s favorite kitchen design projects in recent memory!

Peter Salerno Inc. was proud to receive another national design award at the 2015 KBIS convention. This year, Peter accepted the national 2nd place award for Best Large Kitchen for his work in a beautiful kitchen for homeowners Tom and Julie Connors.

So of course, Peter and his wife Tracy Salerno had to take Tom and Julie out to celebrate! And what better place to celebrate than one of Peter Salerno’s favorite restaurants, Latour in Ridgewood, NJ.

You may remember executive chef Michael Latour’s stunning cooking video in Peter Salerno Inc.’s La Cornue showplace kitchen from late 2014 (click HERE to watch that amazing video).

Champagne bottles were popped and toasted (and a delicious meal was enjoyed) as Tom and Julie celebrated their award-winning kitchen with Tracy and Peter Salerno!

With the holidays approaching, Peter Salerno and his family are spending more and more time in his custom designed, award-winning kitchens than ever. But sometimes instead of designing kitchens, Peter is at home in his own kitchen designing authentic, homemade Italian meals.

Last weekend, Peter and his family (wife Tracy, son Anthony and daughter-in-law Eve, daughter Gabrielle and son-in-law Brian) gathered for a delicious homemade Italian dinner, which included the Salerno family recipe for the perfect cavatelli.

Now, the Salerno family recipe for cavatelli is supposed to be a well-kept secret – but it’s the holidays, and Peter Salerno felt like sharing just a “little bit” of the family recipe. (Just like his award-winning kitchen designs: what good are they if they’re not shared with others?)

So Peter’s sharing his surprisingly simple list of ingredients for the perfect homemade cavatelli recipe with you here, as well as some pictures from his preparation of the dish. As for the preparation steps themselves? Well, those may have to come at another time. After all, Peter’s parents might have something to say about that!

Peter Salerno’s Homemade Cavatelli Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 lb. ricotta cheese

It’s not just beautiful kitchen design and custom cabinetry that make Peter Salerno Inc. the most award-winning kitchen design firm in North America over the last decade. That level of excellence requires commitment to innovation, technology, and forward-thinking design.

Proof of Peter Salerno Inc.’s commitment to outstanding, client-focused kitchen design with a flair for the dramatic can be found in a brand new kitchen design from Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey.

Together with architect Bob Zampolin, Peter Salerno Inc. created an amazing kitchen counter that doubles as a hiding place for a flat screen HD television.

Not only does the HDTV emerge and disappear seamlessly into the kitchen counter, it is able to rotate a full 360 degrees, and is entirely operable by remote control. (Yes, seriously.)

If you need video proof of this amazing kitchen design innovation, the rotating 360-degree TV, and the entire design in action – we have two videos in this article for you to enjoy!

Peter Salerno, architect Bob Zampolin and the Woodcliff Lake, NJ homeowner were all thrilled with how the rotating automated TV design turned out, and couldn’t wait to share these videos with the world!
