Melinda Loftus Headrick is the owner and principal designer of Chatham Interiors, Inc. She grew up in New England and received a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Vermont. She would later return to education and graduate with an interior design degree. This formal education enhanced her eye for design by fine tuning skills related to proportion, scale, and balance.
Melinda worked for several design houses until establishing her own firm in 2007. She selected the name, Chatham Interiors, Inc. in honor of the beautiful town of Chatham, Massachusetts where she has spent much of her life.
She explains that the name “Chatham” represents to her sustainability, elegance and true quality. “I chose not to name my firm after myself because frankly, interior design is not about “me”, it is about the client. Rather, I selected a name that, for me, would always represent the core principles I want my firm to stand for.”
Since then, she has overseen numerous residential and commercial projects up and down the eastern seaboard, including a unique restaurant in North Carolina and a rental property in Turks and Caicos, BWI. She has also been involved in several non-profit projects offering her time and talents as a designer.
Her passion for design is clearly evident in her work.
Her firm is run with the understanding that loyalty to the needs of their clients is paramount above all.
