Peter Salerno Inc. Design Client Reviews

      • “Peter Salerno and Company are the ultimate professionals. Between Peter’s creativity and the expertise craftsmanship they produce the highest quality award winning kitchens, baths and cabinetry. Peter designed our kitchen, baths, and built-ins for our new home. It was stress free and a pleasure to watch. And it turned out exquisite! We couldn’t be happier.” – Houzz review, courtesy of user giacopellirj
      • “Great Experience for sure! Re-doing a kitchen is a very long process with many decisions. Patience was worth it. It took over a year to get everything exactly the way we wanted it and Peter and his crew remained supportive through the whole process. He listened to every detail I needed and made sure in the end we were going to be happy with the final results. It is by far the most expensive room in your home to remodel but we kept in mind that it is also where you spend the majority of your time as well. My family couldn’t be happier with our space and we wouldn’t change a thing! The cabinets are very well built and the installers where awesome! Peter gives you a unique experience. He was more than just a designer in this process! He is now a friend and that is what you will get with him!” – Houzz review, courtesy of user kckeane

That is the thought process behind the Tesoro ™ Collection, a series of traditional kitchen designs that mix old-world design theory and modern technological amenities.

The Tesoro ™ Collection is a trademark of Peter Salerno Inc., the most-award winning custom kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century.

From the Peter Salerno Inc. website:

About Tesoro ™…

In Italian “tesoro” means “treasure.” When you step into one of our Tesoro™ kitchens, you are stepping into an interactive treasure box created for you by the highest awarded design firm of this century.

Tesoro™ is the best of Classic and Old World design re-imagined for the 21st Century. Tesoro™ features our own moldings, colors, woods, reclaimed tin hoods, and reclaimed tin panels to ensure a truly one-of-a-kind space unequaled in luxury.

The combination of classical and contemporary speaks directly to the three generations of family artisans that comprise the Salerno legacy. Peter Salerno’s father, Rosolino, was a master craftsman and cabinetmaker trained in Sicily. He passed his love of fine craftsmanship on to his son, and Peter’s artistic vision coupled with his father’s “old world” training created a design dynasty.

Peter Salerno’s idea behind the Tesoro ™ Collection is simple: classic, beautiful design can be timeless, but functionality of that design needs to remain current. By crafting luxurious traditional kitchen designs around aesthetically beautiful and modern appliances, the Tesoro ™ Collection from Peter Salerno Inc. is something to behold.

Many Tesoro ™ Collection kitchen designs offer custom designed and created hoods made of reclaimed tin ceilings from around the world. Not only does Peter Salerno create a new life from recycled materials, but each pattern comes with a backstory. Some of his patterns have been taken from gas stations on Rt 66, cafes and jazz clubs in New Orleans, and speakeasies owned by Al Capone. These hoods are truly unique and are only available through Peter Salerno Inc.

When Peter Salerno Inc. assures you a kitchen that blends “Old World” design with 21st century innovation, that is precisely what you can expect. Peter Salerno will provide you with a truly innovative and interactive kitchen, complete with ties to the world’s foremost appliance makers and product designers.

Whether your taste is fine marble tile, handcrafted cabinetry, beautiful and cutting-edge appliances, or simply the most luxurious kitchen imaginable, Peter Salerno Inc.’s Tesoro™ kitchen design line will exceed your every expectation.

Peter Salerno Inc. Kitchen Designs: Pantone Spring 2017 Inspirations

1. Color: Kale; Custom Kitchen Design:”The Artist’s Palette”

Peter Salerno and his team utilized Kale (18-0107 TCX) as an accent color in “The Artist’s Palette”, an eclectic kitchen design with several signature features. The matching panels and custom range hood are an instant conversation starter, while the far wall has a Rothko-inspired print that adds a hint of red-orange to the design (reminiscent of Flame, another Spring 2017 Pantone color.)

Pantone Spring 2017 color trends: Kale is a dark, leafy green loved by many.

2. Color: Niagara; Custom Kitchen Design: “Reflections”

Featured in a late 2016 edition of Bergen Magazine, the Peter Salerno Inc. “Reflections” kitchen design wowed with denim-based blue in the vein of Niagara (17-4123 TCX), a staple of the Pantone Spring 2017 collection. The addition of dark flooring and smoked mirrors along the refrigerator and cabinetry make this a perfect kitchen design for tranquil daydreamers.

3. Color: Hazelnut; Custom Kitchen Design: “A Classical Traditional”

Somewhere around Summer/Fall 2016, neutrals stopped being accessories and started becoming the main event of many home designs. Such is the case with this classic traditional kitchen design from Peter Salerno Inc., featuring a rich collection of taupes and tans, including Hazelnut (14-1315 TCX).

Pantone Spring 2017 color trends: Hazelnut is a warm, nutty neutral that balances the collection.
