It’s not just beautiful kitchen design and custom cabinetry that make Peter Salerno Inc. the most award-winning kitchen design firm in North America over the last decade. That level of excellence requires commitment to innovation, technology, and forward-thinking design.

Proof of Peter Salerno Inc.’s commitment to outstanding, client-focused kitchen design with a flair for the dramatic can be found in a brand new kitchen design from Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey.

Together with architect Bob Zampolin, Peter Salerno Inc. created an amazing kitchen counter that doubles as a hiding place for a flat screen HD television.

Not only does the HDTV emerge and disappear seamlessly into the kitchen counter, it is able to rotate a full 360 degrees, and is entirely operable by remote control. (Yes, seriously.)

If you need video proof of this amazing kitchen design innovation, the rotating 360-degree TV, and the entire design in action – we have two videos in this article for you to enjoy!

Peter Salerno, architect Bob Zampolin and the Woodcliff Lake, NJ homeowner were all thrilled with how the rotating automated TV design turned out, and couldn’t wait to share these videos with the world!

Peter Salerno and the design team at Peter Salerno Inc. are at it again, bringing their award-winning kitchen design skills to a drop-dead gorgeous home in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey. One look at the exterior of this home, and Peter knew that this home deserved a stunning kitchen on the inside to match the sheer beauty of the outside.

Winners of the 2014 NKBA Best Small Kitchen and 2012 NKBA Best Overall Kitchen awards, Peter Salerno Inc. was the perfect choice to provide smart, opulent and striking kitchen design to this New Jersey home. The use of stone was pivotal in the kitchen design, to match the wonderful use of stone on the exterior of the home.

Peter Salerno and his team decided the best use of that stone would be in a stunning fireplace, which you can see in the kitchen design photo below. The stone fireplace and chimney are accented on either side by custom hand-crafted cabinetry, a signature of Peter Salerno Inc. design.

The use of Peter Salerno’s “Maestro Rosolino” custom cabinetry continues throughout the interior space and kitchen design. A second fireplace with wall-mounted HDTV is  flanked by another pair of custom cabinets elsewhere in the interior space, matching the rich, dark wood of the flooring (see photo below).

Perhaps the most striking, modern facet of the kitchen design is a hidden flat-panel television that emerges seamlessly from kitchen counter space. The TV then rotates a full 360 degrees, is fully automated and operable by remote control, and disappears (again, seamlessly) back into the counter.

British Home Design Feature: Victorian Terrace in Dublin, Ireland (“Period Living”)

Beautiful Victorian Home Restoration In Dublin

We turn to the fantastic periodical Period Living once again for a stunning restoration of a Victorian terrace home in Dublin.

The article “Triumphant Return” tells the story of Matt Whitby, a Dubliner who purchased a Victorian terrace in 2007. Over the course of 7 years, Whitby painstakingly restored the period property, taking disjointed rooms and converting them into a flowing space and a functional home.

The Victorian home had been split into multiple studio apartments (flats, for our British friends!), hampering the natural flow of the structure. Matt Whitby’s goal was to modernize and re-incorporate the Victorian terrace home, and based on the photos taken by photojournalist Philip Lauterbach, Whitby has achieved great success.

Whitby was careful to modernize where appropriate, but also to restore as many of the period Victorian features of the home as possible. Whitby restored many of the original windows, mouldings and floorboards. He installed an open-plan kitchen which opens into a quaint rear garden.

The resulting home space is a wonderful mix of modern and classic Victorian, set in muted tones of blue, gray and white.

“I’m so happy with how the house has turned out,” Whitby expressed to writer Penny Crawford-Collins. We are too, Matt – congratulations!

Thanks to “Period Living”, writer Penny Crawford-Collins and photographer Philip Lauterbach for this outstanding piece. You can order the September 2014 issue (which features this article) or a subscription to Period Living by clicking this link.

British Home Design Feature: Interior Designer Charlotte Crosland

Charlotte Crosland’s Kitchen Designs Sparkle

If you’re not constantly drawing inspiration from others in your field, then you’re not really growing. Peter Salerno believes that wholeheartedly, and he’s not afraid to let the world know who inspires him.

A new favorite artist of Peter Salerno’s is English-based interior designer Charlotte Crosland, whose work was featured in the September 2014 issue of Beautiful Kitchens, the UK’s best-selling kitchen magazine.

CharlotteCrosland1

Charlotte provides us with some fantastic insights in the article, ranging from the importance of usable space to color palettes, from flooring to lighting. Here are 3 wonderful tips from the piece:

  • Proportions are important in a kitchen, especially when it comes to the size of the island in proportion to the room.
  • Avoid over-cluttering. Charlotte’s advice? “[D]on’t be scared of leaving things out in your kitchen.”
  • There are major benefits to an “open-plan” kitchen. Accessibility, an inviting feel, and the space in which to move freely are vital to a functional kitchen.

Special thanks to Charlotte Crosland and Beautiful Kitchens magazine for publishing this valuable piece. The September 2014 issue of Beautiful Kitchens is available on newstands and for digital download.

British Home Design Feature: Georgian Home In “Period Living”

“Period Living” Features Georgian Home Restoration

For those of you unfamiliar with Period Living, there’s a reason for its standing as ‘Britain’s best-selling period homes magazine’. From homes to gardens, decoration to restoration, Period Living is a staple publication for lovers of classic British design.

Peter Salerno quickly fell in love with the September 2014 issue of Period Living during his recent trip to the UK. One piece in particular caught his eye: an article titled “Echoes of Memories”, profiling two people’s journey to restore a classic Georgian home in Derbyshire.

Peter loved the article so much, we had no choice but to share its main photograph (credit Lu Jeffery), lifted directly from its pages:

Partners Sue Swain and Steve Ford painstakingly restored the Georgian home, called “the house with 14 windows” by locals. Author Heather Dixon and photographer Lu Jeffery create a wonderful portrait of Swain and Ford’s home, full of beautiful rustic decor and cheerful blue hues.

The home is dated to the 18th century, and according to the article several elements “are believed to be dated back to Medieval times”.

The best part of this gorgeous British design restoration? The work was done by readers of Period Living, proving the talents of its readers.

“I love the fact that everything comes with its own story that means something to the family,” the article explains. It’s those kinds of personal touches that Peter Salerno cherishes in his own designs, which helps explain this property’s magnetic appeal to him.
