Truman and her clients traveled to a veneer factory in Ohio to select the walnut tree they would use for the cabinets. The result is a flame pattern, which Truman bookmatched throughout the project.
Truman found ways to incorporate her clients’ love of entertaining: The butler’s pantry is smartly tucked between the kitchen and dining room, and the appliances were chosen specifically to support large meals and parties.
The dramatic wood of the cabinetry is complemented by a two-story wall of windows that
faces a terrace and garden, allowing plenty of natural light to stream in.
