Celebrate Our Military Heroes This July 4th
There’s nothing more “in fashion” on the 4th of July than celebrating the heroes of the United States Armed Forces. Take it from a man like Peter Salerno, not only a world-renowned designer but a veteran of the United States Navy.
Peter attended The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina and graduated as an Ensign in the U.S. Navy with a Business Degree. His Naval commitment gave him the ability to travel most of Europe and Western Asia. Studying art and sketching have always been a form of relaxation for Peter; being stationed in Italy was the perfect opportunity to study the masters and old world architecture first hand. After returning from the Navy and working in corporate America, Peter decided to return to his father’s business and began to apply his artistic vision to the growing family business.
This Independence Day, see the world through the eyes of a man like Peter Salerno, who cherishes both service to his country and being an extraordinary kitchen and bath designer. Take a moment to show your gratitude to our military.
