A Look Back | 5th Anniversary of Angular Traditional Kitchen Design
The content of this article is heavily drawn from an article we first published in 2014. The kitchen design featured is entitled “The Angles Are In the Details”, from award-winning custom kitchen designer Peter Salerno Inc. of Wyckoff, New Jersey.
Fresh off his award for 2014 Best Traditional Kitchen from Signature Kitchens & Baths Magazine, Peter Salerno and his team went right back to work on a new kitchen design. This time, Peter Salerno Inc. provided a Franklin Lakes, New Jersey home with a gorgeous traditional kitchen design, full of classic design features, custom elements and angular details.
The traditional kitchen design, which is featured on Peter Salerno Inc.’s Houzz page, features a gorgeous expansive center island, custom Maestro Rosolino beaded inset cabinets, and a one-of-a-kind custom reclaimed tin hood (only available through Peter Salerno Inc.)
Here are some design and technical details about Peter Salerno Inc.’s latest traditional kitchen design:
The cabinets are Maestro Rosolino – our private line of cabinetry. The finish on the perimeter is paint and glazed, the bar and islands are walnut with a stain and glaze. The cabinet style is beaded inset.
The hearth features one of our custom reclaimed tin hoods- only available through us.
The countertops are Grey-Gold limestone, 2 1/2″ thick.
The backsplash is polished travertine, chiard, and honey onyx.
Dark Wood + White | A Modern, Opulent Transitional Bathroom
If transitional bathroom design is your taste, then Peter Salerno Inc. invites to take a look at this breathtaking bath project, called ‘Simple Tranquility’.
This transitional bath design is a gorgeous dark wood & white transitional bath in northern New Jersey. With a lot of hard work, inspiration, and teamwork (Stratta, the Tile Boutique and Stone Surfaces, to name a few), the results became truly magnificent.
‘Simple Tranquility’ is a transitional bathroom in Bergen County, NJ. The cabinets are walnut with an espresso stain from Peter Salerno Inc’s coveted “Mastro Rosolino” (TM) line of cabinets.

A few weeks ago, we brought you exclusive photos from a stunning new kitchen design from Peter Salerno Inc. A modern kitchen that delicately balances 2018 trends with classic design elements, Peter Salerno and his team created a masterpiece that ranks with the finest new kitchen designs of the year.
But the kitchen design doesn’t come alone! It’s accompanied by a dazzling butler’s pantry and augmented by hallway cabinetry that elevate a luxurious kitchen design into a complete transformation of a home.
Much like our previous article about this design, we’re going to keep the words to a minimum and let the photos do the talking! A few things we do want to point out:
We love the unique backsplash tile in the butler’s pantry, a glass mosaic tile from Stratta, the Tile Boutique;
The white Miele coffee maker in the butler’s pantry, which flows so seamlessly with the cabinetry and appliances;
The simple yet elegant brown leather pulls on the hallway cabinet, from Richelieu.
Here are some of the overarching design stats, specs and points of information about supplies and sub-contractors!
– White Miele Coffee Maker

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!
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!

Small Business Saturday: Bergen County, NJ Shopping
Anchored by a showroom that 201 Magazine called “a wonderland under one roof”, this 3-shop design storefront is a must-visit for anyone considering a new home, home remodel, or update to their custom kitchen or bath design. Located just off Routes 208 and 4 in Wyckoff, NJ, the Peter Salerno Inc. Home Design Shops are an all-in-one center for home design enthusiasts.
The journey begins at Peter Salerno Inc., winner of the most national design awards since 2002.

A fine escape from the big business bath companies, B. Witching Bath Co. is a great find in the heart of downtown Ridgewood. From soaps to lotions, oils to soaks, the product assortment at B. Witching is alluring and high-quality.
Stemming from a 40-year family tradition of fine handmade bath products, B. Witching Bath Co.’s products “are uniquely formulated with the finest therapeutic botanicals, wholesome ingredients, essential oils and minimal preservatives”. Each batch of their products are crafted to high standards on an individual basis.
For the guys out there who often find themselves at a loss in big bath care stores, fear not! We love B. Witching’s efforts to invite men into their store with fine products designed “for him” as well.
A walk through the charming downtown center of Westwood brings you to Serene, a quaint spa and boutique with a natural vibe. The name “Serene” is indicative of the feeling you get upon entering the storefront, as customers find its atmosphere relaxing and peaceful.
Serene offers a wide array of products, from clothing to skin care. Need a break from the stressful rush of holiday shopping? Serene also offers a litany of fairly priced health options – from massage to waxing, Reiki massage to skin care.
The Serene boutique also offers the added bonus of some very unique jewelry options! If you’re a lover of baubles and bangles, bracelets and necklaces, then make sure you stop by for a fine small business option for your jewelry needs.
4. Caffe Anello and Sogno Coffee (425-429 Broadway, Westwood, NJ)
Of course, all this Small Business Saturday shopping is bound to make you hungry! Our favorite local haunt for a unique bite to eat and a world-class cup of coffee is Sogno Coffee – conveniently, just a short walk away from Serene Spa & Boutique in the heart of Westwood.
You’ll visit Sogno Coffee for its magnificent coffee and beverage selection, including espresso, macchiato, cappuccino and some fantastic hot chocolates. You’ll stay for their assortment of freshly made crepes, available in both Sweet and Savory options. We highly recommend the simple delight of the Fourth Avenue, a handmade crepe made fresh and served with lemon juice, honey, sugar and butter.
If you need a little more nourishment, the double storefront also features Caffe Anello, a tremendous sit-down restaurant you’ll visit over and over again!
