I have a new addition to introduce you to – she’s petite, classic but modern, has a warm muted shine about her, and works like a boss. I think I shall call her Rapunzel for her long, golden looks.
I hadn’t exactly been planning to replace our kitchen faucet but then this amazing thing happened. Delta Faucet Company invited me to a blogger event (fantastic blogger event) at their headquarters in Indianapolis. And on top of all the doting they did while we were there, they gave all of us a new faucet, showerhead, and toilet – details to come on all of these awesome pieces.
Can we talk about the color for a minute? It’s gold but not in-your-face gold. The color is actually called Champagne Bronze which is kind of perfect. It’s got more yellow than an antique bronze but is a really rich, deep, sophisticated version of gold. It looks divine with stainless steel appliances – the finish echoes that of stainless but with a warmer tone.
I went with the more petite Bar/Prep Trinsic Kitchen Faucet because of how the kitchen faucet sticks up above the ledge between the kitchen and family room. It’s the absolute perfect size. There is the exact same faucet available in full size too, though – Full-Size Trinsic Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet (Touch2O Technology).
Scott had a bit of an, “Uhhhhhhh…are we doing the whole kitchen in gold?” reaction but he too has been wooed by the cool factor of the Touch 2O. And one of Scott’s many great qualities is that he generally trusts my plans for the house. I can tell he’s having trouble wrapping his head around my plan to add a few touches of this brushed gold around the kitchen but he’s letting me run with it.
I am positively twitchy about actually getting the cabinets painted and adding new hardware. I can see it all so clearly in my head. I’m probably looking at late October before I have the time in my schedule to start the painting, but I daydream about how it will all look all the time lately.
My gorgeous new faucet is keeping me suitably distracted for now though.
