Empire Decorating: John Saladino’s Period Style

Designer John Saladino is best known for his period style decorating, and love for antiques.  His passion for interesting antiques make his rooms feel interesting and rich than the typical designed room with modern accessories.    The lovely Brooke wrote up an interesting post detailing his home that was featured in the Santa Barbara Design Style Magazine.  As you can see his design style certainly isn’t modern, and that’s why we love him!  Fellow Canadian Patricia Gray featured some beautiful shots of John Saladino’s talent for creating and recognizing good architecture.  He truly is a designer after the heart of the past.  His rooms often feature fabrics and textures that are warm such as camel linens; beige leather, white cotton, olive green suede; dark reddish woods.  He has made himself famous for his use of color and his use of a variety of textures.  Saladino graduated from Notre Dame and the Yale School of Architecture, and later opened his design firm, Saladino Group Inc., in New York in 1972. His firm has grown into a “full service Architectural, Interior Design, and Landscape Design. Saladino has also designed furniture for companies like Dunbar, Bloomingdale’s, Baker, Knapp, and Tubb’s, and started his furniture line, Saladino Furniture Inc.
