Born and raised in New Orleans, Kate Martindale attended the Art Institute of Atlanta before traveling through Europe and living in the Middle East. On her extensive travels Kate was immersed in design, fine art and architecture; influences which she draws upon today as a prop stylist, food stylist and interior designer.
Kate's New Orleans roots are reflected in her love of vintage flea markets, where she has an uncanny ability to find amazing one-of-a-kind pieces that she then seamlessly mixes with the new, balancing feminine and masculine design elements and creating unique sets and interiors that perfectly reflect her client's goals.
As a prop & food stylist Kate collaborates with acclaimed photographers Quentin Bacon, Steve Erle, Ray Kachatorian, Amy Neunsinger, and Victoria Pearson.
Translating her clients' direction into aspirational spaces and desirable tableaus is what Kate does best for advertising clients such as Arbonne, Bloomingdales, Coca Cola, JCP, Kohl's, Payless Shoes, POM Wonderful, Target and Williams-Sonoma. Her editorial clients include GQ, InStyle, Body + Soul, and C Magazine.
As an interior decorator, a sample of Kate's clients includes Lauren Conrad, Curtis Stone, and Courtney Love.
Kate's work can also be seen in the latest #1 New York Times Best Seller Lauren Conrad Celebrate and celebrity chef Curtis Stone cookbook, What's for DInner?: Delicious Recipes for a Busy Life.
