A Day with Delta Faucet in Chicago!

This post is sponsored by Delta® Faucet. In early May, Delta® invited us and a handful of bloggers to share in a Day of Inspired Design. The best part?

For now. But here we are, 10 years later, and we truly can’t imagine living anywhere else in the world.

A Night In
