I still can’t get that first three minutes out of my head. It is one of those painful experiences that are permanently etched in my psyche, like the time my high-school homecoming date passed out cold at the dance and was rushed to the hospital via ambulance. Apparently she had to have her stomach pumped after nine shots of Jagermeister. She promised me her virginity that night. I hate when people break their promises and can’t hold their liquor.
Although initially I found the House Beautiful meeting to be painful and embarrassing, the end result was both positive and productive. I could feel the excitement in the room and I knew at that moment this kitchen was going to be a success, not just for me, but for the entire Jeff Lewis Design team.
