Interior designer — and mom to three kids — Lauren Wilson says it’s hard to believe that she’s been in her family home for five years. When she moved in, she envisioned an open space that she and her husband could create and build on their own. However, the space was anything but the open-concept she dreamed about. «We knew that we had a long road ahead, but went through with it anyways,» she says. She knew that they would have to bust through three rooms to create the big open space they desired. For Lauren, it was necessary for the growing family.
