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 has been an essential part of Lighthouse Contracting Group since 2012. She works with our customers on all the design elements of the project, including: plans, layout, material and paint selections, appliances, window treatments, furniture layout and other design elements.

She has a showroom at 25 Artisan Court in Gilford, NH,  where you can view cabinet, counter top, fabric and flooring samples. She has many wholesale accounts for products and finishes allowing us to offer the best value for our clients.

She will get a feel for what you like and a sense of your budget. With this information she can present various material selections that meet your needs. This is helpful with second homes, which saves the customer from having to make special trips to the area just to go shopping at local vendors. Read more about Lauren on our blog!
