Harmonia Inc.'s Roxine Brown Brings Fashion Sense to Landscapes
by tara baird
“Being fortunate enough to live in the Hamptons, we are always surrounded by the beauty and creativity of nature,” says Roxine Brown, founder and creative director of Harmonia Inc. Brown spent 30 years in the fashion industry before breaking into landscape design and still draws from the world of fashion. Under Brown’s creative arm, similar to layering clothing, Harmonia Inc. often layers the elements of its landscape and garden designs. Her deep-rooted understanding of color and texture now lends itself to the vibrant hues and intricate foliage that defines Harmonia’s landscapes.
Brown balances her fashion-inspired approach with one dictated by nature itself. She takes cues from the earth so as not to drastically interfere with the natural beauty of the property. “When we walk away from the finished landscape, it should feel as if it were always there,” she says. “Our relationship with our client and their property is a personal one; each project is unique and inspired by its specific surroundings." 141 Maple Lane, Bridgehampton, 537-9672
