Gertrud D, a painter and owner of Gertrud D Galleries an Amsterdam, bought this old warehouse on the Keizersgracht. Each of the four floors had ceilings over twelve feet high. Wide wooden boards functioned as floors and ceilings. The pièce de résistance was that the top floor was graced with windows on all four sides, perfect for a studio.
Because the home is a monument, special permission had to be obtained for any alterations made to the building. The staircase was moved to the center, the glass roof was exposed and, with virtually no doors, the space was opened up to take full advantage of its size.
I do believe there is not anything I don't care for!
The plaster walls are fabulous.
The owner combines rich textures, both bold and subtle color palettes, plain wood, gilt furniture and crystal.
OK, I would also love this atelier with a view out of every window!
The word serene comes to mind in this part of the home.
Amazing walls and urns!
