What’s Our Story?

One Kindesign got its start in 2010 by Lori Smith, a practicing interior designer in the desert state of Arizona. Originally from Canada, Lori came out to the U.S. for university and never left. The rugged mountains and warm weather… and no more scraping snow off windshields was an enticing draw to stay. After spending some time living in San Diego, which is when this website actually begun to spring its roots, the desert called to come back home. So here we are, desert living. If you have never been, its a wonderful place to call home!
