“Gretchen and I decided to embark on a combination residence and short term rental build of a duplex on the beach in North Carolina. We lived in Fort Collins for two decades and were referred to Salt Design by our architect Sean Tomlinson hoping that Salt could help us with the interior design of our new property. From the get-go, Annie put our minds at ease and began sketching out the paths we could take to get our place ready for the start of summer rentals that were only a few months away. It is difficult for us to express the relief Gretchen and I felt after just two conference calls with Annie. We could tell immediately that we were in good hands and had someone that could actually get this done and done well. Annie not only offered many design paths, but was also able to flex things to our preferences and budget constraints. Annie was with us all the way, even when the purchasing process was delayed and complicated by the onset of the virus in March of 2020. The house was done on time and our visiting guests were all thrilled with Annie’s keen eye for design. We could not be happier with Annie’s commitment to listening, collaboration, and timeliness. It was a most enjoyable experience and money well spent. We could not have done this without Annie and the Salt team.”


Jeff Casterella, Homeowner

“We really wanted to find a design team that we would be able to build a relationship with. We didn’t want to work with a team that was simply there to take our money. We wanted to work with a team that would get to know us, identify our true needs and work on developing the best solution for us.”


Kasey Zia, Manager of Retail Experience

“Sometimes designers get kind of niched into one thing that they’re really comfortable doing. The great thing about Salt Design is that they can move in and out of any project and maintain a high level of quality from resorts to retail to bars to tasting rooms. The Salt Design team can do many different things really well.”


Anthony Terrazas, Brand Manager

“I had the pleasure to work with Salt Design as they were part of a project team on a CSU project on campus. From day one through the end of the project the team went beyond there scope of work to ensure this was an iconic building. They worked through issues, brought ideas to the table, and provided solutions. I hope I have more opportunities to work with them in the future.”


Tony Flores, Project Manager Facilities Design and Construction

“The difference between Salt Design and other design firms is that Salt Design really understands the business and the culture of the business they’re designing for and that’s what drives their design. Salt is also budget oriented and will always provide attractive alternatives when budget constraints dictate a change in design.”


Robin Busteed, Assistant Project Manager

“I have worked closely with Annie at Salt since April 2016 on various projects in the Caribbean, ranging from the concept planning of a large scale development, down to the finer details of specifying paint colors for a boutique resort we are repairing. Annie shows an incredible attention to detail and is easy to communicate with on projects large and small, and within tight deadlines.”


Tanya Whistler Project Manager

“From the kickoff of the project to completion, SALT consistently dove deep into the perspective of what both our business needed, and what our consumers were looking for. They did a great job of providing options for different ways to activate the brand in a public light, while also maintaining budget. Throughout the entire design process, they delivered different value options for construction. As we worked through the project, Salt took the items that were less efficient and presented different solutions for efficiency and aesthetics. This type of work and thinking is exactly what we needed in a strategic business partner.”
