Welcome to our blog! We will be using this blog as a way for us to share our love and passion for what we do every day in the complex world of Interior Design. Before we get too far along, we wanted our first post to allow us to share a little bit about ourselves and what we do!
Kelly Mericle Design is a Philadelphia based Interior Design firm focused on bringing a fresh and synergistic approach to interior projects of distinction. Together we have combined experience in diverse and fundamental facets of the design industry which range from interior architecture, furniture design, design education, and real estate development. Our firm introduces elegance, vitality, luxury, and contemporary comfort into the spaces we design.
Kelly’s passion for design and love of the industry were nurtured from a young age. The daughter of a commercial real estate developer, Kelly accompanied her father to countless job sites and learned about the interplay between architecture, design, construction, and the business of real estate. In Philadelphia’s dynamic market, Kelly saw an opportunity to found a design firm based on her unique understanding of business, real estate, and design. She is inspired by the physical environments surrounding her and is particularly drawn to designs which play with the abstract qualities of solid and void, light and shadow.
Design, art, and architecture have surrounded Vivian since childhood, where her international upbringing in the U.S., Spain, and France offered her constant exposure to inspirational historic spaces. She realized early on that beauty in physical surroundings can have a direct effect on people’s moods. Prior to joining Kelly Mericle Design, Vivian was a long-serving Senior Designer at Eberlein Design Consultants, Ltd. in Philadelphia. She is a proponent of working systematically, believing that organized processes create an essential footing for fruitful creative and forward-thinking results.
Raised in the Philadelphia suburbs, Elizabeth always had a love for detail, materials, and texture. Elizabeth turned to a career in design as a way to merge her interests in fine and applied arts. Her extensive knowledge of custom finishes, design trends, production, and specifications in behind-the-scenes settings makes her an asset in the process of delivering high-end installations which require assiduous attention to detail and ambitious timelines.
