With an eye for color and texture, Bree Wellons gravitated towards interior design during her college years at Syracuse University, when she studied cultural anthropology and photography. Her interest grew after graduation, while she traveled around the world, absorbing different cultural design details. While living in Sydney, Australia, Bree was inspired by modern interior design, and she soon realized her hobby had developed into something more. When she returned to the United States, she began working for another designer and enrolled in interior design school. She began working with clients and friends almost immediately, and she was hooked. Her passion for combining old and new became a signature stamp on her own home and on the spaces she designed for clients. In 2009 Bree launched Dilwyne Designs, a design studio born from her many travels, her eye for detail, and her knack for making her environment, no matter where it is, a place where friends and family are always welcome and comfortable.
In February 2011, Bree launched the Dilwyne Designs blog. From the start, the blog has served as a creative outlet for her to share design and lifestyle stories that interest her. Over the last year, and over 150 posts later (with the help of her business manager, Blair) Bree knows that this is just the beginning of endless unique and inspiring stories to come.
BLAIR LINDLEYBusiness Manager
Blair has a natural eye and passion for clean, functional design. After graduating in 2005 from the University of Delaware, Blair started her career at various architecture firms in Delaware, working her way from shuffling papers and managing construction documents to designing and compiling marketing proposals for prospective clients. She used her knowledge of various design programs, such as Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator as a freelancer to design brochures, restaurant logos, and even the auction banners and directional signage for the Delaware Theatre Company’s 2009 Wine Feast at the Chase Center.
In 2010, Blair joined Bree’s team at Dilwyne Designs as the business manager. She oversees the day-to-day processes of the business and as with all small businesses, she takes on many different roles. Most importantly, Blair puts her design skills to work on the Dilwyne Designs blog; taking Bree’s content and images and implementing her signature clean and sophisticated style to each post. Her calm and steady approach to all areas of the business truly keep things running smoothly.
