Loretta's passion for interior design developed early on. From a young age Loretta found herself helping family and friends design beautiful and functional spaces within their homes. This led her to study at Endicott College in Beverly, Ma where she earned Bachelor of Science in Interior Design. Loretta spent the early part of her career working at residential design and architect firms in New England. She loves creating unique but timeless spaces, mixing old and new, and integrating natural materials wherever possible. In 2018, Loretta officially launched Salt Bay Studio from the home she shares with her husband, Trevor and their two fluffy Golden retrievers. (Pippa and Tashmoo) In 2020, while the world was learning to work remotely, Loretta took a different approach and opened her studio located at the Saxonville Mills in Framingham, Ma. This provided the space she needed to grow her team and store the endless amount of samples she admittedly hoards for future projects.

"We are so grateful that we found Salt Bay Studio. They helped us create the most beautifully decorated and inviting homes over the years – four in total!
SBS makes it a point to get to know you and your personal style. They will work with you to make your space your very own, but better than you could ever do. No matter how big or small the project, they will listen, be professional, supportive, creative, and passionate about their work and your vision.
In our most recent project with Salt Bay Studio, they helped us to design our newly built 4500 square foot home … every room …even down to our finished basement. They made multiple visits to the property as the construction was completing. They spoke with our builder on the design, schedule and process and made sure they knew every detail of each room. They provided layouts, renderings and samples so we really had a good understanding of what the space would look like before it was ever done. Most importantly they understood our dream and cared about making it a reality for us. We couldn't be happier with the process and the end result."
