About Darren Mercer

Darren Mercer has had a passion for design for as long as he can remember. Unlike many children who grow up constantly changing their dreams and goals for the future, Darren knew from a very early age that all he wanted to do was draw, design and build things.

As the years have passed Darren’s interest in design has not waned in the slightest, and although his creations have now changed from simple model cars and miniature toy action figures into real life projects and some truly grand designs, his passion for this line of work remains as strong as ever.

Darren graduated from the University of Liverpool with a 1st in Interior Design, and since then has worked for a range of both small and large sized interior design boutiques in Liverpool, London and New York City, designing interiors for both private wealthy individuals and commercial groups.

In 2007, Darren Mercer was awarded the Interior Design ‘Rising Star’ Award, for his work transforming a run down Victorian Town House by Richmond’s Kew Gardens into a stunning contemporary family home. His biggest project to do date was a brand new Condo and Apartment development in Liverpool comprising 20 individually crafted units, and he is regularly involved with beautiful old country house regenerations, most notably in Hampshire, Sussex, Cornwall, Yorkshire and Derbyshire.

Darren cites his time spent designing interiors for mountain-perched chalets in the Swiss Alps as his favourite place to create, so far; “There’s a certain calmness and inner peace in all aspects of life over in Switzerland, which is something I try to take with me and incorporate into all of my designs”.
