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.

Reclaimed Vintage Wood Beams In Gorgeous Transitional Kitchen Design

Reclaimed Vintage Wood Beams In Gorgeous Transitional Kitchen Design

Beauty is everywhere. It’s not always obvious; sometimes, beauty is simply looking at things in a new way.

A quick glance at the vintage wooden ceiling beams in New York City’s St. Patrick’s Orphanage wouldn’t impress many. In fact, these beams were all but destined for the scrap heap until a world-class designer saw them through his unique set of eyes.

Peter Salerno didn’t just see a set of old beams. He saw an opportunity to reclaim a piece of history and incorporate it into a world-class transitional kitchen design.

The result? In a word: WOW.

This transitional kitchen design (from a home in Pearl River) blends today’s most sought-after design elements with a sense of old-world charm. This luxurious contrast is thanks, in large part, to the very same reclaimed vintage wood beams set for disposal just a few months earlier.

People often tell you to “look up” for inspiration. While the phrase is metaphorical for most, it’s to be taken quite literally in this kitchen design. The vintage wood beams dare to be noticed, sitting boldly bare above a white and gray kitchen space. Two large statement lighting fixtures invite the eye upward from the custom transitional kitchen island to the intersecting beam structure, adding a touch of rustic charm to the elegance of the kitchen below.

The beams sit in contrast with the finished wood floor below, and the overall kitchen design invites the eye to notice and appreciate that contrast. The white island countertop and backsplash are set against gorgeous hand-crafted, hand-painted white and gray cabinets. The massive twin refrigerator and glass-enclosed wine rack take up a full feature wall, while the opposite end of the kitchen features large windows and a dining nook to allow in plenty of warm, ambient light.

The range hood enclosure demands attention as a centerpiece of the transitional design, evoking imagery of a grand piano painted gray to match the kitchen.

The transitional kitchen design, construction and installation was handled by Peter Salerno Inc., the most award-winning North American kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century. Winners of national awards from the NKBA, KBIS, HGTV, HGTV People’s Choice and Signature Kitchens & Baths (among others), Peter Salerno Inc. prides itself on extraordinary design based on personal knowledge of individual clients, their lives and backgrounds.

Winter 2018 Color Design Trend | Black, Gold + Off-White Dazzle

Winter 2018 Color Design Trend | Black, Gold + Off-White Dazzle

The combination of black, gold, and off-white is a stunner, and it’s all the rage this Winter 2018-19 design season.

And why not? The timeless sturdiness of black, the dazzling punch of gold, and the trendy neutral off-white are the perfect blend of transitional and timeless. Used to proper effect, this color combination can make its way from a seasonal trend to a lasting color design scheme in your home.

The luxurious, crisp combination of these 3 colors is often associated with New Year’s celebrations – so why not apply them to your entire winter color design scheme by extension?

The wonderful thing about the combination of black, gold and off-white tones is how relative they are with the trend towards neutral and white tones in kitchen and bath design. With bases in black, taupe/beige (gold tones) and off-white, this color palette covers virtually all your neutral tone bases, while still creating plenty of visual interest.

We’ve selected two sample Pantone color palettes for this Winter 2018-19 color design trend, then broken down the six Pantone colors separately with their Pantone reference codes for easy identification.

Which palette do you prefer? Do you prefer classy and demure, or bold and glossy?

When Peter Salerno Inc. teamed up with Stratta, the Tile Boutique to create a transitional bath design they called ‘Simple Tranquility’, Peter knew they were creating something special.

Three years later, the beautiful transitional bathroom is still a timeless, stunning design. It was awarded 2nd place nationally by Signature Kitchens and Baths magazine in March 2015. It was quite an honor for Peter Salerno and his team, who also took home two national kitchen design awards from the NKBA during the 2015 KBIS convention in Las Vegas.

‘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.

The tops are marble from Stone Surfaces in East Rutherford, NJ. The backsplash is glass and porcelain, and the floor is marble tile by Stratta – The Tile Boutique , Wyckoff, NJ. The hardware is polished stainless from Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ. All the fixtures and fittings also came from Hardware Designs, while the sconces and chandelier came from Capitol Lighting in Paramus, NJ.

This gorgeous transitional bath design was truly a team effort, and Peter Salerno certainly shares this award with all parties involved – Stratta, Stone Surfaces, Hardware Designs, Capitol Lighting, and his own team at Peter Salerno Inc.

But the people to truly be congratulated are the owners of this nationally award-winning bathroom – it was their project, their space, and their dreams that made this room a reality!
