WHERE DID COAST COME FROM?
When COVID hit the makeup/film industries, Julie used the opportunity to pivot into her other huge passions – interiors and art.
Julie’s own home (hamptonbeachhouse.com.au) has been used as a location for film, TV and photo shoots for many years because of its beautiful Hamptons design and carefully curated collection of homewares (designed and handmade by Julie). As demand for her handcrafted homewares grew, Julie created Coast as a way of giving people to access to her creations. Read about Julie's design aesthetic here.
