The 2017 Peter Salerno Inc. Christmas Party Photos

Peter Salerno Inc. held its 2017 Christmas party inside the beautiful confines of its award-winning design showroom in Wyckoff, New Jersey earlier this month. As usual, the event was attended by family, friends, associates, staff and a few very special (and very cute) guests!

2017 brought several new babies into the Peter Salerno Inc. family – Gabrielle Salerno-Mayer’s daughter Brielle and Nadya Russov’s daughter Olivia join Anthony Salerno’s daughter Jesse as the next generation of passionate designers! As you’d expect, these beautiful little ladies were the main attraction at this year’s Christmas festivities.

Of course, something that’s always a featured treat at Peter Salerno Inc. showroom gatherings is Peter Salerno’s culinary creations! For 2017, Peter made a few of his special sauces . The first two sauces was a bolognese sauce with three meats, sweet peas, shredded prosciutto and a splash of merlot. The second sauce was a metro sauce, featuring plum tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, prosciutto and heavy cream.

Peter Salerno was joined by some of his most cherished business associates at the Christmas 2017 party as well. Guests included longtime friend and photographer Peter Rymwid, Nicole Sakosits (owner of Stratta, the Tile Boutique), and staff from New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Peter is also blessed to be surrounded by his family this holiday season – his wife Tracy, son Anthony, daughter Gabrielle, daughter-in-law Eve, son-in-law Bryan, father Rosolino, and two beautiful grandchildren (the adorable Jesse and Brielle mentioned earlier).

There are many reasons for Peter Salerno and the Peter Salerno Inc. family to feel blessed during Christmas and the 2017 holiday season. The most important of all, as always, is the love and bond of family and friends, and the time and talents of Peter’s professional family.

Enjoy these exclusive photos from the 2017 Peter Salerno Inc. Christmas Party – we hope they add a little warmth and love to your day!

Peter Salerno Inc. is the most award-winning North American kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century. So it stands to reason that in the Salerno family home, Thanksgiving is a pretty big deal.

“[F]amily dinners are all about food, love and more food,” Peter Salerno quipped on social media during Thanksgiving 2017, posting a series of photos of his immediate and extended family sharing a sumptuous Thanksgiving dinner in their stunning Bergen County, New Jersey home.

Peter Salerno was joined for Thanksgiving by his wife Tracy, his father Rosolino and his mother-in-law Jo. Peter’s son Anthony was accompanied by his wife Eve and daughter Jesse, and Peter’s daughter Gabrielle came with her husband Brian and their daughter Brielle.

Peter was sure to thank the renowned Goffle Farms for the family’s delicious 18 pound turkey. The main course was accompanied by some outstanding side dishes, from the traditional (mashed and roasted potatoes, string beans) to the unconventional (a delicious lime and pineapple mold).

The meal also featured a beautiful and delicious pasta course – homemade pumpkin fettucine with a creamy sausage sauce. The fettucine was a huge hit with the family!

As the 2017 holiday season swings into full force, it’s important to take these moments to cherish those around you – both in your professional and personal lives. Peter Salerno takes great care to maintain a good work-life balance, and takes the time to nurture his work family alongside his own.

Thanksgiving 2017 was a pretty beautiful day for Peter Salerno and his family, but nothing compares to the warmth he felt in his own home. Peter sincerely hopes you had a blessed, safe and satisfying Thanksgiving full of love this year.

Laura Adams Stiansen’s list of kitchen designs piqued our interest due to its attention to detail and appeal to multiple types of consumers, chefs and families. Her featured kitchen designs include “For a growing family”, “for a rising culinary creator”, and “for the master chef”.

From Laura’s introduction to this article:

Whether your family is growing from four to five or if your new hobby is creating innovative dishes with the ingredients you have on hand — having the right tools in your kitchen is important. Space, shelving and high-end appliances are all pieces that need to fit together to create the perfect kitchen.

The designers of these world-class chef’s kitchen designs were happy to speak regarding their creations.

“The best part of this project was the collaboration with the owners,” Peter Salerno stated to the author. “They are artistic, and were not afraid to go with something edgy. They listened to my ideas and asked how we could bring it up a notch.”

“I feel it’s always best that we get involved before construction begins to be certain all the client’s wants and needs can be met,” Anthony Passanante of Anthony Albert Studios added.

Fall 2017: 201 Magazine Features Gorgeous Kitchen Design Photos

Fall 2017: 201 Magazine Features Gorgeous Kitchen Design Photos

Once again, (201) Magazine sets the bar extraordinarily high with a stunning kitchen design layout.

The latest Home Issue of (201) Magazine (for Fall 2017) features an article titled “For a Rising Culinary Creator”. The photography in the article is courtesy of Peter Rymwid Architectural Photography, and the kitchen was designed by Peter Salerno Inc. of Wyckoff, New Jersey.

The kitchen contractor is Anthony Vero of DiVero Electric and Remodeling in Mahwah, New Jersey.

We love the exposed beams and stone work leading into the kitchen (the photo on the right), with gorgeous archway moulding framing your view into the modern kitchen design. Peter Rymwid’s expert photography of the Peter Salerno Inc. design perfectly captures the custom range hood fixture over the kitchen island that serves as the focal point of the kitchen design.

Once inside the kitchen, the “wishbone” design of the island seating really captures the imagination. As with much 2017 transitional design, neutrals and whites act as the featured color palette of the design. The crisp white of the chairs and custom Maestro Rosolino cabinetry.

We also love the oversized exposed spice rack on the wall, and the beautiful La Cornue rotisserie wall feature that’s mounted several feet from it.

Other featured appliances come from Wolf, Sub-Zero, Miele, and U-Line (the wine refrigerators).

“The best part of the project was the collaboration with the owners,” Peter Salerno told (201) Magazine in the article. “They are artistic, and were not afraid to go with something edgy.”

The flow from the backsplash to the base of the kitchen island to the flooring really ties this beautiful kitchen design together.
