Design Flashback | Best Bath Design Award Winner, 2014

Design Flashback | Best Bath Design Award Winner, 2014

During the spring of 2020, we’re taking some time to look back at our favorite designs of the last decade. One such design was honored by Signature Kitchens & Baths Magazine as the top bathroom design of 2014.

Created by our parent company Peter Salerno Inc. (the most award-winning custom kitchen and bath design firm since 2001), this French-inspired design lives in a gorgeous home in Princeton, New Jersey. Drawing inspiration from his trips to Vence and Picardie in the French countryside, Peter Salerno set a luxurious tone in this bathroom with clean neutrals, distinct lines and a stunning ceiling.

Enjoy these exclusive photos of the 2014 Best Bath Design, along with original article content!

Original article content:

Peter Salerno Inc. is experiencing a humbling and rewarding 2014 interior design awards season. First, we were honored with NKBA’s 2014 Best Small Kitchen award, as well as a Top 10 People’s Choice Award from HGTV for the same kitchen design.

Now, Peter Salerno and his team have been honored by Signature Kitchens & Baths Magazine with their prestigious 2014 1st Place, Best Bath Design award. Frequent readers of this blog will remember this stunning bathroom design from Princeton, New Jersey, created from the inspirations Peter took from a visit to the French countryside.

As was mentioned in the previous article about this gorgeous French-inspired bathroom, Peter Salerno and his team drew from various aspects of classic and contemporary French design. The light painted cabinetry was inspired by the Picardie region of France. Peter also chose the tile to reflect the kitchen’s custom stonework (a staple of design in Vence).

A look to the other region of the bathroom shows a beautiful porcelain tub set between two large windows – once again, to accentuate the copious amount of natural light this home’s location provides. A walk-in shower sits inside the far wall, and fresh linens await the user at every turn. Lastly, the brass fixtures and mounts reflect French design from the Oise region.

Peter Salerno and the entire team at Peter Salerno Inc. in Wyckoff, NJ, are greatly appreciative of this 1st Place, Best Bath award from Signature Kitchens & Baths Magazine – and even more appreciative of the fantastic homeowners who get to enjoy this award-winning bathroom every day!

Closed for Coronavirus: A Love Letter To Peter Salerno’s Design Showroom

Closed for Coronavirus: A Love Letter To Peter Salerno’s Design Showroom

We hope you are healthy, safe and have the essentials you need during this trying, odd time in our lives. COVID-19 (the novel coronavirus) has turned the world into something none of us expected just a few weeks ago. And yet, “shelter in place” is the new normal. “Social distancing” is the new form of interaction.

And we miss each other.

This isn’t an article talking about the beautiful facets of Peter Salerno Inc.’s award-winning design showroom in Wyckoff, New Jersey. This isn’t a letter pining for Swarovski crystal, Miele appliances, and state-of-the-art accoutrements. That would be tone-deaf and insincere.

We miss the Peter Salerno Inc. showroom for what it represents.

The showroom is nothing without the people inside it. The social gatherings. The birthday celebrations for Peter, his family and friends. The cooking classes with culinary specialists like Chef Michael Latour. The special events like the art exhibit with Broadfoot + Broadfoot.

On a normal day, we marvel at the showpiece La Cornue statement kitchen, with Flamberge rotisserie and Grand Palais range. Today, we think about having an espresso at the display island with Anthony Salerno, or a Pellegrino with Gabrielle Salerno-Mayer. We remember watching as Peter Salerno used his own showroom kitchen to create lunch for his staff and loved ones, and thinking how much care he put into everything he does.

We miss all of it.

Some articles are created on a directive. We’re given a theme, a collection of media and a statement to drive home. This is not one of those articles. Today, we simply can’t wait for the moment we can reconvene in Peter’s showroom. To the world, it might be a KBIS Most Innovative Showroom award winner. To us, it’s a gathering place for wonderful people.

There will be updates about the re-opening of the Peter Salerno Inc. showroom to the public in the coming weeks, and we will certainly report that to you.

In the meantime, if you would like design advice or guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic, Peter Salerno and his team are offering remote “Design Online!” assistance, complete with a complimentary first virtual meeting.

Green Kitchen + Bath Design Ideas for St. Patrick’s Day 2020!

Green Kitchen + Bath Design Ideas for St. Patrick’s Day 2020!

Any day is a good day to “green” your living space – but if you need a festive excuse, look no further than St. Patrick’s Day! The most famous of Irish holidays, St. Patrick’s Day is a wonderful time to get inspired by the green shades, tones and design elements that are trending in 2020.

We’re sure you’re expecting the usual fare in this article – shamrocks, green throw pillows and drapes, etc. Fear not – we’re bringing you something different!

How can you incorporate fresh greens and florals in a new and interesting way in your kitchen design? This article will help you answer those questions.

Of course, we should already be “going green” with as many design choices as possible, in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint and become more environmentally conscious. So in terms of this St. Patrick’s Day, we’re taking the idea of “going green” a bit more literally.

Green isn’t the simplest color choice to use in a kitchen or bath design in 2020. With color design trending more and more towards neutral and white tones, it’s often hard to find a place for green as more than a complementary color. But is that really a problem? Utilized properly, a complementary green tone in your design can create quite the impression.

Let’s take a look at the official Pantone green tones of Spring 2020, and a few “outside the box” design ideas to add a splash of green this spring.

Kitchen Design Ideas With Pantone Spring 2020 Colors

Kitchen Design Ideas With Pantone Spring 2020 Colors

As we stated in another recent article, the best thing about Pantone color trend reports is designing with them! With that in mind, why don’t we start taking a look at how the best kitchen designers in the world are drawing inspiration from the Pantone Spring 2020 fashion color trend report.

With 2020 Pantone Color of the Year Classic Blue leading the charge, Spring 2020 provides a refreshing and diverse array of Pantone colors. From the alluring heat of Flame Scarlet to the deep purple of Grape Compote, it’s hard to recall a more diverse color palette than Pantone’s Spring 2020 in recent memory.

That being said… we’re starting with the classics.

Classic Blue – a dependent, sturdy tone. Sunlight – a blushing yellow/tan that borders on neutral. Brilliant White – a radiant white with a blue undertone. Ash – a rock-solid medium gray. Lark – a versatile and warm tan neutral.

Let’s see what award-winning kitchen and bath design firm Peter Salerno Inc. can do with these fashionable Spring 2020 colors in mind.

Note: An original article on this gorgeous transitional kitchen design was posted here on September 9, 2019. Since then, the design has become a reality, with more and more reveals happening on Peter Salerno Inc.’s social media as the weeks pass. We wanted to keep you updated, and flash back to the original installation article – which has some amazing videos and photos! Enjoy!

— Original 9/19/2019 article content —

The team at Peter Salerno Inc. employed a massive boom to install a world-class luxury glass countertop in a high-rise kitchen overlooking Manhattan. The videos must be seen to be believed!

Peter Salerno Inc. is the most award-winning American custom kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century, with awards from prestigious organizations like the NKBA, Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Signature Kitchens & Baths. For this particular kitchen design, the task was at once simple and complex. The simple part: installing a fabulous kitchen counter from Galaxy Glass & Stone.

The hard part? Getting that luxurious, hand-crafted counter to a high-rise apartment overlooking the gorgeous skyline of Manhattan.

Team members from Peter Salerno Inc. and Galaxy Glass & Stone decided to hoist the countertop using the assistance of a massive boom crane, delicately lifting the counter up the side of the luxury apartment building. From there, the crew carefully brought the counter inside the apartment, and completed the kitchen installation.

The result was well worth the effort. The clients now have a one-of-a-kind conversation piece as the centerpiece of their kitchen design!

The beautiful countertop is laced with metal, then topped with glass for an industrial, transitional look. The counter blends nicely with the custom range hood on the kitchen’s feature wall, and plays well against the rich brown cabinetry, drawers, and kitchen island base.

Peter Salerno’s personal trademarks abound in this kitchen design. From the recessed soffit above the kitchen island to the clean, neutral color scheme, this transitional kitchen provides eye-popping features and design elements that transcend simple trends. It’s important to have a kitchen design that takes current design trends and implements them in a way that becomes timeless.
