Giveaway! Win A Kitchen Design Consultation With W&D and Delta Faucet Fixtures

Interiors & Decor



What does one do when she has run out of rooms to makeover? She turns and looks to you, dear readers. My addiction to renovations is real. With so much inspiration (thanks, Internet), it’s hard to keep the urge to redo your kitchen at bay. As so many of our readers are buying their first homes, I thought it would be a great opportunity to take my urge to renovate and help one of you update your space. Sound like fun?

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Delta Faucet for a unique giveaway that includes a 1 hour phone consultation with me about your project, a mood board designed by me, and a free suite of Touch2O Technology products for your kitchen to make our vision a reality.

Kitchens are notoriously the hardest working room in the house. In our own home, the kitchen is where we hold family meetings, the baby’s bath, late night work sessions, and all-day cooking marathons. Delta Touch2O Technology requires a simple touch anywhere on the spout or kitchen faucet handle with your wrist or forearm to activate the flow of water at the temperature where your handle is set. So whether your hands are full or your fingers are messy, your faucet is clean. Another technology we love is the Delta TempSense™ LED light which changes color to alert you to the water’s temperature and eliminate any possible surprises or discomfort. Pretty cool, no?kitchen-moodboard

We’re excited to help one lucky reader design their kitchen around Delta Touch2O Technology!


The Trinsic, The Cassidy, Or the Mateo?

To enter, comment below explaining your kitchen space and how a new set of fixtures from Delta Faucet will help! Please keep in mind, I’ll be providing a mood board with inspiration. Delta Faucet and Wit & Delight will not be invading your home to makeover your kitchen, but Delta Faucet will be providing one lucky reader (chosen at random) to receive a new set of fixtures. Even though this is a random drawing, I will be reading each and every one of the submissions.

We can’t wait to hear all about your kitchen needs and how Delta Faucet and I can help!

I would love a Delta faucet for my kitchen sink. We had our kitchen renovated in 2005 and its been 11 years! I like our faucet now, it looks like the Delta, but it doesn’t work like one! I have a small kitchen–probably 10 X 10, with an island in the middle and kitchen cabinets on two sides (L shape) and a row of bottom cabinets where a half wall used to be, opening into a formal dining room. This house was built in 1937, so its pretty old, but was updated nicely. I love our home, but I would… Read more »

We have found ourselves unexpectedly expecting. We have put off a bunch of things, like upgrades, so this would be a welcome treat!

I would love to win this. I am starting the process of renovating my kitchen and am having a hard time choosing a faucet. It be be wonderful to have help!

October 28, 2016 10:38 am

I don’t currently own a kitchen (we’re in the process of house hunting right now) but my parent’s are in great need of a kitchen makeover and I would happily pass this along to them. My mom has been such a great help with our new baby born in July. She deserves an updated kitchen! 🙂

I have a 1950s galley kitchen in Richfield with new high quality solid wood cabinets (but they are honey oak…and very orange), laminate countertop and faux 90s wood floor. I’d love to update the counters (quartz with some beautiful marbling), add a real tile backsplash, install a new sink, add some additional lighting, paint my cabinets (tuxedo look, perhaps?!) and install a new floor.

October 28, 2016 10:42 am

First of all, I’ve never heard of Delta Touch20 Technology before this post and wow! so amazing! My husband and I are currently in Escrow on our first home! We will be closing before Thanksgiving, and are ecstatic! We are so excited to start this new journey. The kitchen is a quite small galley kitchen which will be a difficult transition as our apartment kitchen is enormous and roomy with all the space we needed! But, we are not afraid! Time to be creative! I spend a large amount of time in the kitchen prepping meals for work lunches, cooking… Read more »

I just bought my first house in July! I’ve been trying to plan my kitchen renovation but have so many ideas I can’t seem to make up my mind.
I could definitely use some outsider perspective to help me decide on a plan!
I’m also a chef, so the Touch20 technology would be AMAZING to have when things get messy.

October 28, 2016 10:58 am

The rest of our house needed major attention after a faucet broke two years ago, 3 weeks after moving in :(, so we didn’t have money to do much to the kitchen. In the last year we have painted cabinets and slowly replaced appliances. Now we are ready to update the flooring, countertops, backsplash, sink and faucet (still have to keep the cabs). We would definitely choose the Trinsic Pro.

October 28, 2016 11:06 am

We have a “beautiful” 198oth – golden oak – antique brass – builder kitchen we are looking to remodel within the next 6 to 12 month. I love modern kitchens with a slight warm family friendly touch to it and I want it white!!!
I saw a lot of potential when we moved into our home 2 years ago and we have done many projects so far but the kitchen we have been pushing out a few times now, due to cost and not 100% decided on what we want to do…

My kitchen is giving me the most trouble when thinking about redecorating. We bought my husband’s great aunt’s house and we love the history that it holds but the kitchen is tiny with not a lot of walls that you can move the placement of things too! Also, the faucet leaks and the oven is broken! Appliances are old, from the early nineties! I would love guidance on how to make the most out of my kitchen!

October 28, 2016 11:33 am

Thanks for the opportunity! Without a doubt, the kitchen is the most used room in our house. We painted it Beacon Blue by Behr when we moved in and love how bold it is (huge difference from the original lavender). It’s a 1990s kitchen with outdated white appliances, two-tone laminate countertops and a white laminate floor (which is nearly impossible to keep clean). But we love the open layout and its porcelain sink. We’ve been avoiding replacing the white stained faucet because we’re unsure if we should plan to match the future appliances/countertops or make it work with the current… Read more »

We are hosting for the holidays this year (for the first time!) so having a smart faucet and some solid advice/styling on our kitchen decor (and hardware and paint palette and lighting) would be excellent!

October 28, 2016 11:39 am

My husband and I recently moved from SF back home to Ohio to be near family. We love historic homes and are thrilled to be renovating a Georgian four-square but man… it’s challenging! We’re doing the work ourselves and decided to gut the kitchen. Its the heart of the home for me so I’m so excited to give it the love it deserves! I’m really digging Delta’s Trinsic Pro faucet. It has a nice balance of simplicity, while giving tribute to the industrial faucets many have been getting (too loud for my liking).

October 28, 2016 11:39 am

We are having a baby soon and then hopefully moving back to our home state by Spring, I would love to win this giveaway to update the kitchen on our future home, most likely whatever home we buy will need updates and I have so many visions of what I want our future kitchen to look like, winning a kitchen design by you would be a dream! Thanks for the chance!

October 28, 2016 12:06 pm

Those faucets are beautiful! Our current faucet has a regular setting and a spray setting, but is stuck in between… giving us a constant stream with a sad little spray out the back at all times. I also can’t stand our split sink and daydream about the wonderfulness of a big farmhouse sink. Our cabinets are very nice, but replacing our orange/gray granite counters with a gorgeous neutral would be heaven!

October 28, 2016 12:20 pm

We have a 13-year-old green kitchen with the original white faucet (can’t believe faucets used to be white!). The Delta faucets are so striking! Oak cabinets are oranging a bit with time and have no hardware. Paint or stain to save money to spend on countertops (love the gray from your mood board) and appliances are top priority. Would love your thoughts on materials to rejuvenate very dated space. Love the rug–very much our vibe, or rather the vibe to which we aspire! Thank you!

October 28, 2016 12:35 pm

We just bought our first house and we are getting ready to renovate the kitchen. This would be an amazing jewel in our kitchen.

Our kitchen faucet keeps leaking underneath the sink. I also can’t use the sprayer at the kitchen sink because it makes it leak even more when I do use it. I would love a beautiful Delta faucet that is beautiful and functional! I would absolutely LOVE a consultation & a mood board designed by you! We are needing to update our kitchen counters and backslash as well. Thank you for the chance at an awesome giveaway!

October 28, 2016 1:36 pm

We are currently (and slowly) making inexpensive changes to our kitchen until we can do a full blow reno. We painted the paneling and cabinets and replaced hardware which makes huge impact. But we still have to rip up the carpeting (yup, in the kitchen!!). We plan on replacing the counters with something DIY (play wood with the feather concrete stuff maybe) and replace the sink (which has been sitting in the back rooms for 2 years). Our faucet is now broken so this is the last piece I need to mar these changes!! I’d love a faucet and consultation!… Read more »

We close on a 106-year-old Victorian home on Halloween (spooky!) that looks like it hasn’t been touched since the turn of the century. I’m talking metal cabinets covered with daisy contact paper. It’s really something 😉 We’ll be living there during the complete renovation and are so excited to bring it up to speed, while retaining the charm and original elements. Since the entire 4000-square-foot house needs updating, money is going to be tight. It would be such a delight to win this giveaway and feature the Delta Cassidy faucet in the new kitchen. This would get our “Modern Victorian”… Read more »

Yes please! We bought our house 3 years ago and are slowly remodeling as we can afford. Our kitchen is stuck in the late 80’s brown cabinets, etc. We’d love to have the Mateo in our kitchen.

October 28, 2016 3:04 pm

We just bought a house in August and the kitchen is the one room that stumps me the most. The walls are hard wood paneling (real pine!), oak cabinets, and broken terracota tile floors (it has reds, yellows, and oranges). Nothing really matches and I would love to start the upgrade process. Our faucet leaks and it hasn’t been out priority to change it. I’m a total disaster when it comes to design and picking out fixtures. Any help would be appreciated!

October 28, 2016 3:11 pm

I’ve slowly been renovating the 1925 home I bought last year, but the kitchen’s seen very little progress. It was renovated in the 70s, then again in the 90s. I’ve updated hardware and painted a brick wall, but still can’t figure out which decade I’m in. And the faucet/sink situation? The faucet extends deep into one of the sink’s three small compartments. Washing anything taller than a stemless wine glass a chore. I like the Trinsic, but do I like black or do I like champagne bronze? It’s so hard to make all of these design decisions on my own!… Read more »

Our kitchen is just a kind of random space in our home, but since we live in a converted loft space (it was an Old Chicago Printing building) our kitchen is definitely in the center of everything! I would love for it to reflect the old wood and metal printing business that was once here, and we need help!

October 28, 2016 6:58 pm

This isn’t actually for me since I rent, but for my mom. She lives in a little ranch house with a super dated kitchen. A big remodel isn’t in her budget, but I’m thinking some changes of color, hardware and of course faucet fixture would make a big difference!

I live in a 1920 craftsman bungalow in the SF bay area. My husband and I bought it last year and unfortunately a foundation replacement took priority over the kitchen remodel of my dreams. The kitchen is mostly original, including a partial wood burning oven, but unfortunately, a bad aluminum sink with a cheap 15$ faucet was put in before we bought it (we found the original sink buried in the backyard!). I’d love a new faucet and some ideas for ways we can bring the kitchen into this millennium while keeping some of its old charm!

October 29, 2016 12:48 am

My husband and I have lived in our home for about a year and the kitchen is decent, but had an awful red-orange paint color on the walls that brought out the orange of the wood cabinets. I easily transformed the space with “Intense White” from Benjamin Moore, but now I’m itching to brighten up the space even more. The lighting is a mix of modern pendants and Art Deco sconces (from previous owners) and the floor is a multicolored slate (think jewel tones: green, blues, hints of brown and maroon). The curtains are early 2000’s beige vertical blinds, and… Read more »

Memorial Day weekend my boyfriend and I bought a fixer-upper, and a month later we got engaged! We’ve spent the past few months unpacking, planning a wedding, and working with contractors to find a way to update our 100-year-old boiler without breaking the bank. Not to mention, we’ve been working on removing six rooms worth of wallpaper. These are all fun projects (with the exception of the boiler…), but the kitchen has absolutely taken a backseat. If I had to guess, it hasn’t been updated in 40 years, and could use some love! We’re a few years away from a… Read more »

The Cassidy faucet would be the perfect fit for my kitchen! While my design taste is more modern, I still must adhere to the traditional taste of my parents whom I share my home with. The technology and clean design fits my needs, without my parents asking “what is that?!” like most other modern technology/appliances I show them. My renovation focus is currently on our kitchen, as it is a place where our family comes together to enjoy the food we love so much (maybe too much). As my family continues to grow, I look forward to a beautiful kitchen… Read more »

Hi! My husband and our three children (all under 5!) are building a home and that Delta Trinsic faucet is amazing! We definitely need some helping with the layout of our new kitchen (L shape with an island?) So many questions I would pick your brain…sink in the island or by the window? How do I have open shelving and still keep the overall look balanced?

Hope we win so I can pick your brain! Love your style 🙂

October 29, 2016 10:40 am

How lovely! I have a small kitchen in a 100-year old NYC apartment building. While the building is lovely, my kitchen is not, and it’s the first thing you see when you enter the apartment, so something simple and but beautiful (and mess-reducing!) is ideal, like the Delta touch faucets. I’m struggling with the design as well, so your expertise would be fantastic!

October 29, 2016 10:42 am

This is such a fun giveaway! We purchased our house from my grandparents 1.5 years ago and have been longing for a kitchen remodel since we moved in. We would LOVE to have your input on our space to see how we can bring it from a dated 1970s feel to a fresh, clean, modern kitchen fit for our young family. Your home is such an inspiration! The Touch20 faucets from Delta would be a great addition to the kitchen to help make our life, with two little boys, a bit cleaner.

Kitchen gadgets are one of my most favorite things. We bought our house in 2011. The faucet in our kitchen makes the most obnoxious noise when turned on. It’s like a gurgling sucking noise. Being the thrifty person I am I cannot seem to let go of it since it technically works. My boyfriend and laugh at the noise all the time in dismay, he installed it and picked it out. I would love to be able to have something quieter like the delta Mateo.

The galley kitchen in my 1928 craftsman bungalow is pure potential – original 3-over-1s flooding light in, solid cabinetry awaiting strip, paint & new hardware, and a likely but tricky reconfiguration needed (push laundry into adjacent room to free up more pantry/counter..?). I sit in my breakie nook every morning with coffee and ponder the possibilities.. would absolutely thrill at the chance to brainstorm with you! The Trinsic Pro in rubbed bronze? Yes ma’am! Thanks for the consideration 🙂

October 29, 2016 10:47 am

This would be perfect for our kitchen remodel – we are hoping for a warm California modern look for our 1950’s Bay Area rancher. I am thinking white oak cabinets or a mix of white and olive green with black hardware. The kitchen will be open to our great room and big nana doors to the front and. Ack yard! Especially loving the Cassidy fixture.

We bought a new house one year ago, and recently we had a massive water explosion under the sink, which leaked through to the basement bathroom. We have been working with our realtor prior to this because we thought something was off about the basement bathroom. We have been fighting what looks like water damage behind the basement tub (first off, who puts a bathtub in a basement!) and we are getting nowhere with the sellers. Our plumber is stumped as to how the water explosion happened. But, from tearing down the ceiling in the bathroom below the kitchen…looks like… Read more »

I just bought a condo that needs the entire kitchen renovated! The current kitchen is still the fixtures from 1996. Currently there is a bar level counter on the other side of the sink. I would love to lower the counter and make it larger so that people could sit and eat on the other side. A new sink and fixtures would be so helpful!

We are in the middle of a kitchen/home renovation and things haven’t gone as well as we had hoped (old house problems). We would so appreciate the opportunity to get some help! We have done a lot of work of trying to save money with two kiddos while making it a space we love and a space our children will love as well. What a dream it would be to have beautiful new fixtures from delta ❤️

Hi! We are just starting to think/plan our kitchen renovation for our Minneapolis home. This explains my obsession with your blog and finding incredible inspiration… thank you!

Either way, thanks for your blog and Instagram posts, I love it, especially as a local Mpls reader! 🙂

My fiancé and I moved into our home about one year ago and of course it’s one project after another! We’ve done a ton of minor work, necessary but not exciting work, built a patio, remodeled our furniture and renovated my studio but have yet to be able to tackle the very 70’s kitchen. It’s of course one of the most used rooms as we adore cooking together and hosting family and friends but it’s also the most dull and outdated space- decorative cabinets with unattractive brass pulls, a small sink, awful backsplash (if you can call it that), and… Read more »

October 29, 2016 11:06 am

Weee! We bought our 100-year-old house last summer, and with it came the kitchen renovations a previous owner completed in the mid-2000’s–so it’s nothing terribly offensive, but it’s builder grade across the board (including fixtures of course!) and nothing I would personally choose today. The way most D.C. rowhouses are structured doesn’t leave a ton of space to work with, so the kitchen was relocated to a small back area that was the original sleeping porch. Good news: a wall of windows with plantation shutters we love and light. Bad news: total lack of character and since it’s such a… Read more »

We are about to celebrate the one year anniversary of buying our first home. I never saw myself in a “craftsman” style house, but there was just something about this 100+ year old home that charmed me. Plus, I really liked the idea of challenging my more modern design aesthetic to fit the space we had to work with. The huge towering maple in the back yard didn’t hurt either 😉 Anyway, a year later we’ve done a few things to make it our own, and I must admit, your blog was a constant source of inspiration. The kitchen, with… Read more »

My husband and I are in the process of buying our first house. We are going to do a complete rehab of the kitchen and new delta faucet would be an incredible bonus! My husband and I love your aesthetic and would love your expertise as we make a once old-folks home into our dream home with the kitchen as the heart of the home.

October 29, 2016 11:16 am

Hello, My husband and I are renovating our home one room at a time and the kitchen is our last major renovation left to complete. The kitchen will be a complete gut renovation with the removal of load-bearing wall between the kitchen and dining room. We plan on getting all new everything including a brand-new sink and faucet to replace the rusty, leaky one we currently have. I would love to have a new Delta faucet with a tradition yet functional design. I have three small children so function is very important. I plan on changing the entire space by… Read more »

October 29, 2016 11:49 am

This would actually be perfect timing because our faucet hasn’t been working up to its potential! My father-in-law recently moved in to have us take care of him while he is fighting cancer, so our kitchen has been our busiest room in the house making meals around the clock for the family. I feel like I’m always either prepping, cooking, or cleaning along with career, raising three kids, and caring for my father-in-law. A comfortable space with an efficient faucet would be amazing to ease the daily grind.

Hi! We have a 220+ year old stone Pennsylvania farmhouse. When we moved in 25 years ago, we gutted the kitchen down to the dirt floor and rock walls. Then we installed a beautiful kitchen that was both completely modern, but clearly respected the history of the house. Now, after all those years of dinners, homework, parties, pets, and more, the kitchen is looking dingy and in need of an update. It’s a big space, 15’x19′, with original exposed beams, 20″ deep windowsills, an unused chimney (a pot-bellied stove for those chilly Pennsylvania winters?), and other unique features. Intrigued? Of… Read more »

My husband and I are in the process of buying a tudor-style home built in 1930. Much of the house’s finishes are original, but the (very small) kitchen was poorly renovated at one point. Everything is painted turquoise! We need to update everything so it is appropriate to the home but still modern and functional. The Delta touch technology is very cool and I think the Trinsic or Mateo would look great!
