Celebrate National Parents’ Day With Us July 23rd

Celebrate National Parents’ Day With Us July 23rd

July 23rd is National Parents’ Day, and that’s starting to mean more and more in our office as the years go by.

After all, there are now FOUR generations of Salernos involved in the life of our parent company, Peter Salerno Inc. – the most award-winning North American kitchen and bath design firm of this century.

It all started with the “Maestro” himself, Rosolino Salerno (Peter’s father). Rosolino worked tirelessly to become a master cabinetmaker and craftsman in Sicily before coming to the United States to start his family. Rosolino’s son Peter grew up in his father’s workshop and soon developed a love for woodwork, fine craftsmanship and world-class design.

After Peter Salerno’s tour of duty as an ensign in the United States Navy, he came home to begin a design career of his own – and did he ever.

Since 2002, no custom kitchen and bath design firm has been more awarded or lauded than Peter Salerno Inc. Peter and his wife Tracy have created a legacy of kitchen and bath design that has made Peter’s father proud. All the while, Rosolino has kept a watchful, expert eye over his son’s business, and his knowledge and expertise has been invaluable to Peter’s business.

To the delight of Peter and the Peter Salerno Inc. family, both of his children (Anthony and Gabrielle) became part of the family business, as a third generation of Salernos entered the custom kitchen and bath design industry.

Gabrielle has become an invaluable part of the daily business at Peter Salerno Inc., managing clients, orders, and presenting a warm, friendly face to everyone who enters their showroom. Anthony has become a craftsman and knife designer (EDGES custom cutlery), and was recently named to the prestigious NKBA 25 Under 25 list.

In a continuation of family blessings, both Anthony and Gabrielle have welcomed baby girls into the family! Anthony and his wife Eve brought Jesse Caren Salerno into the world, and Jesse was soon followed by Brielle Nova Mayer, daughter of Gabrielle and her husband Brian Mayer.

Professional success is wonderful, but nothing will ever be more important than the bonds, traditions and love of family. Peter Salerno is overjoyed to be surrounded by family in both his personal and professional lives, and takes special pride in this year’s Parents’ Day – as it is an opportunity to celebrate his parents, his children, his wife, and his two grandchildren.

Welcome Baby Brielle to Our Design Family!

First Photos of Beautiful Baby Girl Brielle

Last week, our design family got a bit bigger!

Peter Salerno Inc. (our parent company) is an award-winning custom kitchen and bath design company, proud to span three generations of the Salerno family. On June 29, 2017, the newest member of theĀ fourth generation came into the world.

Peter and Tracy Salerno’s daughter Gabrielle and her husband Brian welcomed baby Brielle Nova Mayer to the family at 1:09 a.m. on June 29th. Brielle was 18.5 inches long and weighed 6 pounds, 5 ounces. Gabrielle’s labor reportedly took less than an hour, so we know that Brielle was incredibly anxious to be a part of the world!

(To those moms who went through terribly long labor – please don’t be mad!)

Brian and Gabrielle Mayer are first-time parents who are overjoyed with Brielle’s arrival. This marks the second granddaughter for Peter and Tracy Salerno; the beautiful Jesse Caren Salerno was born to Anthony and Eve Salerno just under 2 years ago.

Baby Brielle is healthy and resting at home with her mommy and daddy, and early pictures highlight her big smile.

We couldn’t be happier with our early July 4th “present” here at Design Your Lifestyle, and are proud to share the first pictures of the newest baby girl to our extended family!
