Healing homes of Rosewood descendants

An interior designer returned to her hometown to raise funds to renovate the homes of descendants of the Rosewood massacre.

Healing Homes by Design, a company created by Melody Vaughn, hosted the hometown edition of the “Art, Wine, Design” fundraiser on Saturday at Caffe Sabroso at 404 SE Second St.

Lizzie Jenkins, founder of The Real Rosewood Foundation Inc., gave an oral presentation on the history of Rosewood and its residents at the “Art, Wine, Design” fundraiser on Saturday at Caffe Sabroso located at 404 SE Second St.

Vaughn said this was the fifth fundraiser and it was the first time she hosted the event in her hometown in Gainesville.

Vaughn returned back to Gainesville to repair her mother’s home and she also wanted to use her gift in interior design to repair homes of Rosewood descendants.

“It’s a spiritual journey for me to come back,” Vaughn said. “Everybody deserves to live in a beautiful space. There’s power in art and living in a beautiful space.”
