Impressive Interior Design’s Modern Fireplace Tile Ideas

Awesome Design Article From Impressive Interior Design

We at “Design Your Lifestyle” take great pride in sharing the best custom design ideas for your bath, kitchen and home – even if they’re from another blog! Such is the case today, as we happily share with you a great piece from Impressive Interior Design.

Andreea and the team at Impressive Interior Design run an expert, informative blog presented beautifully in a clean, minimalist package. A site that incorporates clean design based on plenty of open space, smart use of neutrals and whites, and eye-popping floral accent colors? We’d say that as “stylish for 2017” as you can get!

The article that caught our eye was “Modern Fireplace Tile Ideas“, a great feature piece that covers trendy, aesthetically-pleasing fireplace tile options. The Impressive Interior Design team leaves no stone (or pebble) unturned, featuring a wide variety of tile options for your fireplace that covers virtually any overall home design.

The role of the fireplace in living quarters has shifted from simple appliance to a design focal point in recent years, as Impressive Interior Design intelligently points out in this excerpt:

The fireplace is a synonym for a comfortable home, but it is also a place where you can show your designing capabilities.

Modern fireplaces are welcomed in any home because of their easy operation and most importantly the warmth they create.

Good old fireplaces have received a new furnace and design making them the main focal point of the room, the “jewels” in the interior.

The article breaks down modern fireplace tile design ideas into two categories: “style” and “substance”, for lack of an easier breakdown.

In terms of style, Andreea and her team recommend such trends as patterned tile layout, faux aging of materials and the use of neutrals as core colors. We also love the bold, “throwback” choice of a herringbone tile pattern.

When it comes to substance, we’re dealing with what your fireplace tile is actually made of. From glass to ceramic, pebble to terra cotta, marble to granite, Impressive Interior Designs gives you a variety of options from which to choose – and we like that. An expert designer thrives in creative versatility, and the myriad of options given in this article speaks to its artistic vision and spirit.

Peter Salerno Inc.’s 20 Years In Design: ‘Then and Now’ Showroom Photos

Peter Salerno Inc.’s Design Showrooms: Then and Now Photos

In our last two articles celebrating Peter Salerno Inc.‘s 20 years of award-winning custom kitchen, bath and home design, we’ve shown you photos from the very beginning of Peter Salerno’s design journey, as well as a look back at Peter Salerno Inc.’s 2006 Hurricane Katrina home construction to benefit Habitat for Humanity.

We thought it would be fun in this piece to show you the differences between “then and now” in terms of Peter Salerno Inc.’s Wyckoff, New Jersey showrooms. The original Peter Salerno Inc. showroom (opened in 1997) and the current showroom existed on adjacent lots, but they feel worlds apart.

The original Peter Salerno Inc. showroom, founded in 1997 on Goffle Road in Wyckoff, NJ, was a converted two-story home that became the foundation for the most award-winning custom design firm in North America in the 21st century. Above, you can see the humble beginnings of the Peter Salerno Inc. brand…

And below, you can see the design wonderland that is 511 Goffle Road, Wyckoff, New Jersey. Home to Peter Salerno Inc., Stratta the Tile Boutique, and Oberg & Lindqust Appliances, Peter Salerno Inc. is now a one-stop design destination for the discriminating home or business owner.

Peter Salerno is the son of Rosolino Salerno (“Maestro Rosolino”), an expert woodworker and cabinetry designer whose trade was honed in Sicily. From the beginning of his career, Peter took pride in plying his own skills after those of his father, and can be seen hand-carving a wooden eagle feature outside his original design showroom in 1997 (see below).

Today, Peter’s design expertise has led him to partner with some the world’s foremost brands in design, including Miele (whose transitional kitchen design feature was designed by Peter Salerno Inc. for his showroom, seen below), La Cornue, Rangecraft, Sub-Zero, Wolf, EDGES Custom Cutlery, Purcell-Murray and TopBrewer.

While the original Peter Salerno Inc. showroom had its charm, the current Peter Salerno Inc. design showroom at 511 Goffle Road in Wyckoff, New Jersey, is a destination for lovers of world-class design, and a winner of the KBIS Most Innovative Showroom award.

Take a look for yourself at one of the design vignettes in Peter’s original showroom (first picture below) in 1997, followed by the current, awe-inspiring La Cornue master kitchen design in today’s showroom.

We love these photos, as a testament to Peter Salerno’s growth as a designer – but also for their similarities in custom design, small unique touches, and master woodworking craftsmanship that have been hallmarks of Peter Salerno Inc. design since 1997.
