Hello lovlies! Happy Monday! Hope your weekend was amazing. We were totally zonked! Minor home things got accomplished because of our exhaustion. Why are we so tired you ask? We had a 72 hour whirlwind trip to Indianapolis, IN to visit the fine folks over at Delta Faucets.
We were one of the eight DIY blogs they chose to come to the conference, and we were honored to say the least. They treated each and everyone of us like kings and queens, and fed us like royalty too. From the moment we walked into the Delta building, we knew we were someplace special. Everyone in the company lined up and applaused when we walked in.
We felt a little like rockstars.
And there (is an awful photo of me) is me with Emily from MerryPad.
Our three days consisted of getting to know the company and the people behind the products in addition to learning about there offerings and what makes them different. There is a lot to go over, so we are dividing it into two posts this week.
One thing I am really over the moon excited about is the Brizo line Delta has. Maybe you have seen the awesome ads around magazine land?
I don’t know about you, but the ad alone caught my eye. So, Brizo is like their top of the line brand. The process they go through in design and development it pretty insane. They travel the world in search of inspiring shapes, and that’s just the beginning. Talk about a dream job. Additionally they are super into fashion. After all, they sponsor Jason Wu and pull influence from the design and movement of clothes. Simply put, they have some pretty sexy stuff going on.
So how does fashion and faucets come together in a way that makes sense? That’s the first question we had too. Think about your home. Think about the little things that make it special.
Like earrings to a gown, this finial makes all the difference on this RSVP, Brizo faucet. I want this bad. So bad. I want to run plumbing into my dressing room just to have a little sink, just to put this bad boy there. I would smile every time I used it or looked at it. And that’s the point.
Delta showed us what goes into the making of their products, and you can trust they are well thought out, environmentally responsible and best of all, attractive pieces you could be proud of. I never would have thought, to put thought, into something so simple as the faucets in our home. Sinse our trip, I have been evaluating every faucet I have come across.
I am pretty set on this guy too. He is the Tresa, and is meant to be in our bathroom.
So there is a taste of what we were up to last week. Check back for another post this week about how to DIY your own install, and more fun stuff.
Our blog was one of eight blogs chosen by delta faucets to join deltadiy2011. Though we were not paid to post, they did provide transportation and accommodations for our trip.
