Two years ago, Peter Salerno lent his 30 years of experience as a certified master kitchen and bath designer (CMKBD) to the NKBA in the production of a new video for NKBA University.

As was first reported on the NKBA Connect blog, that video of Peter Salerno was featured as a Center Stage Video at the KBIS 2015 convention in Las Vegas.

The video was part of a presentation entitled “The Importance of NKBA Certification”, taking place on Tuesday, January 20th from 3:45-4:15 p.m. at KBIS 2015’s Center Stage. The interactive Center Stage presentation was perfect for students, young designers, and experienced designers looking to take their credentials to the next level.

The new transitional kitchen vignette is not only a showcase of Peter Salerno Inc.’s award-winning transitional kitchen design efforts, but of the new, state-of-the-art Miele kitchen appliance line.

The centerpiece of the new transitional kitchen display is a stunning kitchen island, topped with a beautiful counter designed by Galaxy Glass. The thick glass slab is embedded with stainless steel mesh for a gorgeous, clean transitional design feel, and allows the user to opt between a soft white light or color wheel display option.

Each of the Miele appliances showcased in this transitional kitchen design vignette is constructed with the same look and feel- from the construction and materials to the display and functionality. Every detail is methodically crafted to provide a seamless user experience.

Happy New Year, and Have a Wonderful 2016!

Peter Salerno Inc. Wishes You A Merry Christmas 2015!

It may be nearly 70 degrees in New Jersey this Christmas – a completely unheard of temperature, trust us! – but it still feels like Christmas in the air. Even if we’re trading in our ugly Christmas sweaters for t-shirts this year, the magic of the holiday season still surrounds you everyone you look.

The award-winning Peter Salerno Inc. showroom is dressed to the hilt with holiday cheer (including our annual visit from Elliot the Elf!). Peter and his family also love to decorate their homes for the holidays – and now that both of Peter’s children are married, they have plenty of work to do with 3 houses to decorate for Christmas!

And let’s not forget Peter’s greatest blessing of 2015: a new granddaughter, Jesse Caren Salerno. Precious baby Jesse is growing fast, and her first Christmas is a special moment in the hearts of her parents (Anthony and Eve), Peter and Tracy Salerno, and the rest of the Salerno and Turner families.

What are your special holiday moments for Christmas 2015? Take time out to find one or two for yourself in a quiet moment. Whether or not you celebrate the holiday, Christmas is a season to celebrate all we’ve done and all we love – and those who love us back.

Peter Salerno with his beautiful granddaughter, Jesse Caren Salerno.

So from Peter Salerno, his family and his team to you and your loved ones – Merry Christmas. We hope the last week of 2015 is full of joy, warmth and love.
