A Closer Look at Our Featured 2017 Summer Kitchen Design

A Closer Look at Our Featured 2017 Summer Kitchen Design

At Design Your Lifestyle, we’re proud to feature an outstanding kitchen or bath design for each season. Our Summer 2017 featured design (in the header of our page) is a gorgeous transitional kitchen design by Peter Salerno Inc. – the most award-winning North American custom kitchen and bath design of the 21st century.

“Farm Meets City Sleek” is a lustrous transitional kitchen that manages to combine rustic charm with uptown chic. One’s first glance at this transitional kitchen design is bathed in white and ambient light, a nod to the recent kitchen design trend where whites and neutrals are used as the primary focus of the overall color design scheme. From the custom Maestro Rosolino cabinetry (a trademark of Peter Salerno Inc. design) to the kitchen island base, this kitchen is adorned with white.

Notes of gray and neutral complement the design, through the custom range hood and counter to the island countertop and wood flooring. One of our favorite aspects of this kitchen design is the the 2×8 mixed metal and glass mosaic backsplash over the range, created by the team at Stratta, the Tile Boutique.

KBIS 2017: Photo Review of An Amazing Week in Design! [Part 1 of 2]

Exclusive Photos from the KBIS 2017 Conference in Orlando!

Every year, the annual KBIS conference is THE foremost week of design in North America, and the 2017 KBIS conference was no exception. From January 10-12, 2017, KBIS 2017 took over Orlando with stellar design exhibits, contests, seminars and the largest array of design industry exhibitors North America will see all year.

Thanks to our friends at Peter Salerno Inc. (winners of more North American design awards than anyone since 2002, and NKBA members), we’re able to bring you exclusive photographs from INSIDE the KBIS 2017 Convention! 

KBIS 2017: The KBIS NeXT Stage

A major highlight of this year’s conference was the KBIS NeXT Stage, presented by the NKBA and sponsored by HomeAdvisor. The KBIS NeXT Stage showcased the industry’s latest trends and insights shared by leading kitchen and bath experts.

One of KBIS NeXT’s prominent features was the NKBA 30 Under 30 presentation, featuring a crop of outstanding home, kitchen, and bath design professionals under 30 from across North America. By the way – congratulations to Peter Salerno Inc.’s Anthony Michael Salerno for being one of this year’s 30 Under 30!

KBIS 2017: Appliance Trends, La Cornue + Rangecraft

We also LOVE the new appliance trends at KBIS 2017 – most notably, what La Cornue had to offer. The featured color of La Cornue range on the KBIS Conference floor was a true jaw-dropper and the talk of many design exhibitors and attendees.

It was also great to see Rangecraft featured so prominently. Makers of fine custom range hoods from a diverse assortment of materials, Rangecraft is (in our opinion) an “IT” company to watch in 2017. If you love the concept of a custom range hood (especially stainless steel) in your home or professional kitchen, Rangecraft is certainly a brand to keep in mind.
