Passion for the Arts, Environment, People, and Place

About Us




At Tate Interiors, we create harmony between modern and rustic style. We keep it warm and cozy without forsaking clean lines and functionality. We take cues from the natural world, a place of order as well as great beauty. We get a kick out of flawless design dialed down to the smallest details.

Our happy place is drawing and dreaming, or being knee-deep in fabric swatches. When you love a room, but can’t quite put your finger on why, we know our job is done. (Hint: It’s not because of the sofa. It’s because everything has come together in sweet, sweet harmony.) It all works because we’re passionate about designing a sense of balance in your home that lady justice would be jealous of.

Whitefish has been our home since 2004. People know us for our obsession with detail, our big-picture perspective, and our dedication to timeless style. Our local clients have asked us to do repeat work across the country, from Hawaii to Florida. We are particular about our materials, including where they’re from, so we buy Made-in-Montana and Made-in-America when we can. We prefer to support companies that care for the environment and their workers. Because that’s how we roll, too.

We are a full-service boutique interior design company, meaning we tackle any project from new construction to remodels to quick makeovers. Learn more about our services and process here.

“Beauty is the oracle that speaks to us all.”

Heidi Tate, Creative Director | BFA Architecture and Graphic Design, Montana State University | Registered Member with ASID

Heidi was raised in Idaho and educated in Bozeman, Montana. As a student of architecture, she learned to speak the language of most everyone involved in the design process, from engineers to contractors. This background helps her make effective decisions and communicate client needs to partners all the way down the supply chain.

While Heidi was in college, her parents, who have managed a number of resorts and lodges in Idaho and Montana, bought a restaurant in Whitefish. She would lend a hand during the busy summertime, and, in 2004, after earning her BFA, moved north to practice interior design at a firm in Whitefish. It wasn’t long before she wanted more creative control and to follow her own design passions. So in 2010, Heidi established Tate Interiors.
