KML Design Solutions was created by Kelley Lopez at a point in her life when it was time to do some serious soul searching about how she wanted to contribute to the world. She’d spent her 20’s & 30’s raising a son and working to help build someone else’s business. While she felt lucky to be a key player in building a successful business and found the work very rewarding, it wasn’t her calling. After having renovated several investment homes and doing some interior design work for friends as a favor, it was clear that interior design is a something that Kelley has a passion for and comes naturally. Cut to 2010 and her son is now grown and doing well and Kelley has found herself in need of starting something new. She got her education from Interior Design Institute in Newport Beach and is a member of the National Kitchen & Bath Association. She has enjoyed helping her clients’ realize their dreams of having a beautifully designed space. Her mission is to improve the lives of people by helping create beautiful, functional and comfortable spaces in the most cost effective manner while making the design process fun.
Kelley is also a professional singer. Something she’s been doing since childhood when her Mother taught her and her sisters how to harmonize. Her singing career has happened organically. She was offered a job to sing background with a large group for New Year’s Eve in 2004 and she’s been working ever since. She has a single on iTunes called “Where Does The Love Go” under the name Kelley Marie.
Kelley’s dream is to start a non-profit that donates furniture and housewares, and teaches life skills to people transitioning from halfway houses and battered women’s shelters.
