A Connecticut native, Lauren graduated summa cum laude from the University of New Hampshire, with a BA in Communication and a minor in Business Administration. Driven by her passion for interior design, Lauren then decided to pursue a formal design education through the Master of Interior Architecture program at the Academy of Art University. She got her professional start at the Boston Design Center before moving to New Hampshire where she started Lauren Milligan Design in 2010.
Lauren explains her love of interior design, “I am passionate about design because I feel its relevance to the quality of our lives. How a place looks and feels determines our experience in it. To me, design is about so much more than color and texture; it is a way for me to help people live their lives in spaces that bring them joy.”
Lauren lives in Gilford, New Hampshire, with her husband and three children. She has worked on projects throughout New England.
