The Showalter-Capen House is an historic designated house that was built in 1885. It was saved from demolition by dedicated citizens of Winter Park and move by barge across Lake Virginia to its present home next to the Polasek Museum on Lake Osceola in Winter Park, Florida. To move the home by barge, it was split into halves, appropriately named Fred and Ginger, and it danced its way across the lake several hundred yards. I was proud to be a part of the final stages of making the Capen House become a museum and events venue. Working with the architect, builder, and museum team, we were able to recreate the space with appropriate finishes, furniture, and art to compliment its origin.

We achieved that in these spaces in her home. We drew from her love of bold, clear colors and made her living spaces come alive.
