Welcome! My name is Kathleen Lowe and I’m the founder of Coastal Farmhouse. I’m often asked how did I come up with ‘Coastal Farmhouse?’ I’ve always been inspired by the coastal casual and time-worn farmhouse design. I grew up along the coast of Connecticut and have always loved roaming the beach for ocean treasures and scouting out all the wonderful antique stores and markets. Growing up, while most girls were playing with dolls, I was creating vignettes and rearranging the furniture in our house. I loved setting the table with beautiful china and candles and creating atmospheres throughout our home.
I studied Art History at Brown University and after a successful career in the marketing and advertising industry, I came up with the idea of Coastal Farmhouse while on vacation. I wanted to share my passion for coastal-inspired living – a style that is relaxed and put-your-feet-up comfy. I value heritage and love items that are good for the soul and refer to Coastal Farmhouse as the place where the country road meets the shoreline. I am passionate about good design, quality, and functionality and love to seek out new and unusual products. Coastal Farmhouse is a reflection of that quality and my life, my travels, and the things I love.
