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. Her passion for combining old and new became a signature stamp on her own home and on the spaces she designs for clients.

As a mother of two young children, I have to share this local story with TownSquareDelaware readers. It is tragic and every family’s worst nightmare. We all have to be so very careful with our children near water. In a matter of 18 seconds this family lost their three-year-old daughter in their club pool over Memorial Day weekend. Larry Mendte tells the story at PhillyMag.com:

Joanie Logan was only three years old, but she had a presence you could not ignore. As smart and confident as she was beautiful, she was the child who people would say is going to be something someday.

Her someday was taken from her on Saturday.

On Memorial Day weekend, in a crowded pool at a private club on the Main Line, with hundreds of people around, Joanie Logan drowned. No one at the St. Albans pool that day and no one in Joanie’s family will ever be the same.

You can click here to read Mendte’s story in full.

Children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates. In 2007, among children 1 to 4 years old who died from an unintentional injury, almost 30% died from drowning. Fatal drowning remains the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children ages 1 to 14 years. To learn more details please click here to visit the CDC site on water safety.
