"A Secret Place" earns Gold Award, Seattle Interior Show, 2002

'A Secret Place': Designed by Judy Gowdy for the inaugural Seattle Interiors Show

This attic retreat provides a place that no one else knows about. A loft filled with personal treasures; a place to renew the spirit. In a private get away, one becomes energized with creativity and finds new direction in the midst of a hectic life.

Framed by rustic beams, textured stucco walls and aged floorboards, the space encompasses an antique Victorian bed, contemporary art, a custom rug patterned after an Americana crewel needlepoint. Other furnishings, both rustic and refined furniture, provide a true sense of things gathered over the years and tucked away in "A Secret Place."
