Stunning New Kitchen Design Photos from Peter Salerno Inc.
Sometimes, a good article is all about the photos. In the case of this dazzling new kitchen design from Peter Salerno Inc., we don’t feel the need to talk too much.
It’s a modern kitchen that delicately balances 2018 trends with classic design elements to create a clean, sleek kitchen design that will be “in” for decades. From the fresh, trendy subway tile backsplash (courtesy of Stratta, the Tile Boutique) to the custom RangeCraft range hood, the statement wall of the kitchen lives up to its billing.
Small details separate this kitchen from others like it. The bamboo work in the island sink from The Galley creates an appealing, unique accent. Brian Greer’s recessed tin ceiling work is dazzling in effect yet subtle in its artistic touches. And with suppliers like Sub-Zero and Miele, you can be sure the appliances in this kitchen design are world class.
In a future article, we’ll feature the hallway closet and gorgeous butler’s pantry that tie in with this kitchen design.
As you scroll through the remainder of these kitchen design photos from Peter Salerno Inc., take a look at the official kitchen specs – range hood, kitchen island, counters, appliances and more!
Top Kitchen Design Trends For Spring 2018: Splashy Bright Tones and Botanical Decor
Are you “on trend” with your Spring 2018 kitchen design? While it’s important to create an overall kitchen design aesthetic that’s “built to last”, there are always ways to tweak your kitchen design and spice things up with changing times.
Maybe you don’t have it in your budget for a total kitchen makeover – but that’s not necessary! Changing or updating just one small facet of your current kitchen can make all the difference in the world. The key is choosing the right updates – and utilizing a world-class kitchen designer certainly doesn’t hurt.
From Pantone’s Spring 2018 color collection to neutral and wood tones, there are plenty of wonderful Spring 2018 kitchen trends from which to choose. Whether you’re looking for a new backsplash design, an updated kitchen island, new cabinetry and flooring options, or modernizing some out-of-date appliances, this season’s kitchen design trends offer lasting solutions to your individual needs.
Let’s take a look at several of Spring 2018’s best kitchen design trends, and how you can utilize them to create (or update) the kitchen of your dreams.
Top Spring 2018 Kitchen Design Trends: Update Your Kitchen!
1. Use a splash of Spring 2018 color to update your kitchen island or backsplash.
Spring 2018’s color scheme, according to Pantone, is full of bright tones and pastels that work as well in your kitchen as they do on the runway. From Spring Crocus to Meadowlark, so many of these bright tones can be utilized to add a splash of color to your kitchen design.
The kitchen island pictured above (from Peter Salerno Inc.) is a fresh take on Pantone Spring 2018’s Little Boy Blue, set against the backdrop of a neutrally-based color palette. The result is a stunning pop of color that transforms a useful kitchen island feature into a true conversation piece. It’s the perfect example of how to incorporate a splash of Spring 2018 Pantone color into your kitchen design without being overbearing or garish. (Note the knotty faux-wood grain flooring, another major trend in Spring 2018 kitchen design.)
2. Botanicals and fresh, leafy arrangements are a great choice to spruce up your kitchen decor.
Botanicals are back in a big way, with imaginative presentations leading the charge. (We love Decoist’s coverage of Framed Botanicals as a decor option.) From large vases to wall-mounted frames, bold botanical presentations are all the rage in Spring 2018.
We love botanical and floral presentations in your kitchen design for any season because of the air of freshness they exude. Nothing’s more appetizing and refreshing in your kitchen than a beautiful display of plants, flowers or succulents to brighten the room with pops of color and the scent of the outdoors. Plus, you can use your botanical and floral arrangements to accent the color scheme of your kitchen!
3. Matte appliances are still in style for Spring 2018.
Matte appliances began their ascent back to kitchen design prominence midway through 2017, and the trend still very much applies to Spring 2018 kitchen design. World-renowned appliance makers like Miele, La Cornue, Sub-Zero and Wolf are all on board, letting the state-of-the-art functionality of their machinery do the talking while the finish on the appliances themselves is subtle and understated.
Using matte appliance finishes allows you to let other elements of your kitchen design ‘flash’, and also lets you flow your range, sink, and refrigerator more naturally into brushed, matte handles on your cabinetry.
4. Love traditional colors? Nautical color schemes are “on trend” for Spring 2018.
In addition to the oversized Pantone Spring 2018 collection, Pantone released a sub-set of 4 “Classic Colors” that bring nautical themes back into kitchen design. From Warm Sand to Sailor Blue, Harbor Mist to Coconut Milk, this collection of off-whites, deep blue and neutral beige is a godsend to “yacht party” style enthusiasts and classic color lovers.
The thing we love about the Spring 2018 Classic Colors collection is its versatility. Whether you utilize these colors in your island countertop, cabinetry, flooring, backsplash or kitchen counters, they all work and flow together beautifully to create a traditional color palette that will last for years.
First Look: Gorgeous New Kitchen Design Installation Photos
We talk so much about trends in kitchen design at Design Your Lifestyle. It’s always a treat to get to show our followers those trends in action with beautiful design photos from a gorgeous new kitchen design installation!
Today, those design photos come courtesy of our parent company, Peter Salerno Inc. Since 2002, Peter Salerno Inc. has won an astounding 35 national design awards in custom kitchen and bath design from some of the most notable names in the industry – the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), KBIS, Signature Kitchens & Baths, HGTV and more.
This new kitchen design was truly a group effort, as Peter Salerno and his team collaborated with some of the finest specialty contractors in the world. Here’s a quick list of the companies who took part in this world-class kitchen design, creation and installation:
Flooring and backsplash by Stratta, the Tile Boutique
As you peruse through these ‘first look’ photos of this stunning kitchen design, here are a few things to note:
We are in love with the blue island. In the midst of such a clean, neutral-based design, the island base truly ‘pops’ with dramatic effect. Coupled with the sleek island countertop designed and delivered by Stone Surfaces, this could easily be one of the most admirable kitchen island designs of 2018.
What more can we say about Rangecraft and its custom range hood designs? As usual, Rangecraft created and delivered the perfect custom range hood for this kitchen design – sleek, sophisticated, and versatile. It’s just subtle and classy enough to blend into the design, and just audacious enough to be a conversation piece of its own.
Stratta, the Tile Boutique created multiple masterworks in this kitchen design. Besides the backsplash and floor tile in the kitchen, make sure you view the full compliment of photos on Peter Salerno Inc.’s Instagram account to see a beautiful saddle and tile work around a new fireplace.
We obviously love the statement lighting above the kitchen island, but don’t ignore the beauty of the other lighting features in this kitchen design. Pay attention to the lighting emanating from above, which appears to give an ethereal ‘halo’ to a floating ceiling feature central to the kitchen design.
The clean white cabinetry meshes perfectly with the overall kitchen design, providing proper form and function without pulling the eye from the more opulent features of the kitchen.
2017 Home Design In Review: ‘Farm Meets City Sleek’ Kitchen Design
2017 was, in the eyes of many, a transcendent year for kitchen design. From the rise of neutrals as primary design colors to the addition of traditional design elements to transitional home design, the world’s leading kitchen designers flashed their creativity and prowess throughout the year. The resulting kitchen designs in 2017 were some of our favorites in years.
With 2018 around the corner, it’s an ideal time to look back at some of our favorite kitchen designs (and home designs in general) from 2017. Our first stop is “Farm Meets City Sleek”, a tremendous kitchen design from Peter Salerno Inc., the most award-winning North American custom kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century (and our parent company).
From the stellar use of white and brown neutrals to the statement island lighting, the custom range hood to the world-class appliances, “Farm Meets City Sleek” is one of our favorite kitchen designs of 2017. Take a look at the design photos, specifications and review, and see for yourself!
“Farm Meets City Sleek”: A Beautiful 2017 Kitchen Design
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 2×8 mixed metal and glass mosaic backsplash over the range, created by the team at Stratta, the Tile Boutique.
The appliance features are a mix of the finest names in kitchen appliance furnishings: Miele, Sub-Zero and Wolf. We also adore the statement island lighting, a series of Exter 16-Jar Pendants from Pottery Barn. As an added bonus to the homeowners, that gorgeous wood flooring is actually the existing floor in the kitchen.
This Peter Salerno Inc. transitional kitchen design is reminiscent of upscale “farm to table” dining, with a touch of countryside charm melded into a truly modern kitchen design. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Two years ago, Miele and Peter Salerno Inc. partnered on what would become one of the foremost Miele transitional kitchen displays in the world.
On Wednesday, November 4, 2015, Peter Salerno Inc., Miele, and some of the finest representatives of the custom kitchen design, appliance and hardware industries came together to celebrate the exclusive unveiling of this spectacular new transitional kitchen showroom vignette.
The new transitional kitchen vignette was not only a showcase of Peter Salerno Inc.’s award-winning transitional kitchen design efforts, but of the state-of-the-art Miele kitchen appliance line.
Miele USA was represented by Miele USA VP of Sales Bob Fava, National Director of A&D Research Group Paul McCormack, NY Metro Regional Sales Manager Dan Gallagher, and Princeton Miele Culinary Events Manager Mary Moulds.
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.
The kitchen island affords comfortable seating for three on one side and is adorned by statement globe lighting which hangs from the recessed ceiling. The recessed ceiling itself is a beautiful 9-panel design painstakingly decorated with silver leaf, and features seamless custom edge moulding.
The base of the island is an ivory white custom piece by Peter Salerno Inc., featuring the astounding Knock2Open Miele Dishwasher. Simply knock, and the dishwasher automatically opens for you – no fussy latches or slamming doors! The base also includes custom cabinetry work from Peter Salerno Inc.’s Maestro Rosolino line.
The flooring is a beautiful, durable faux-wood concrete which was voted on by you, the readers of Peter Salerno Inc.’s official blog. Wonderful job!
The backsplash, provided by the world-class artists at Stratta, the Tile Boutique, was also voted on by readers of this blog. A seamless design that appears to be one solid pre-fab piece, it is actually comprised of over 250 meticulously set tiles.
The Feature Wall
In front of the backsplash, 4 glass shelves are mounted in front of LED lighting, which presents the illusion of pure white light streaming from within the shelves. A bold stainless steel range hood design was custom-designed by Peter Salerno Inc. and crafted especially for this transitional kitchen display by the artisans at Rangecraft.
The custom ivory white Maestro Rosolino cabinetry features over a dozen drawers. 6 drawers are push-to-open (to complement the Knock2Open Miele Dishwasher), with 2 more “hidden drawers” which border the Miele range in the form of moulding columns.
The Miele 48″ range and cooktop itself is a wonder of modern technology. It features a conventional range, warming drawer and storage unit, as well as a 6-burner cooktop. The range features a wireless roast probe which communicates directly with the oven. For example, if you want to cook a tenderloin to an internal temperature of 135 degrees Fahrenheit, simply turn on the oven and set the roast probe to 135. When the internal temperature of the tenderloin reaches the desired temperature, the oven will automatically shut off and alert the user that the roast is ready!
From bread to roasts, sear to bake, the Miele oven features hundreds of customizable settings to suit the needs of every chef, from amateur to professional. The 48″ Miele range also features a built-in speed oven which eliminates the need for a microwave.
The feature wall also includes a new Miele coffee maker that must be experienced to be believed! Below the coffee maker is a combination steam oven which allows user to stack cooking programs and save cooking recipes beforehand, where the user can seamlessly go in and out of cooking and steam functions or even use those functions in conjunction with each other. The combination steam oven also allows user to control the percentage of steam from 0-100% which is unique to Miele.
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.
