Today we’d like to introduce you to Lizzie Huck Stensing.
Born and raised in Wisconsin, Lizzie attended UW-Oshkosh graduating with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Studio Art. In 2005, she moved to Chicago and completed her B.A. Interior Design Degree graduating in 2007 from the International Academy of Design and Technology. In 2007, Lizzie went to work for two local Chicago Design firms. In 2010, Lizzie started her journey as owner and designer at L.Huck Interiors, LLC. In 2015 she moved to WI with her Husband Eric and dear canine friend Oliver where they live on the Kenosha Lakefront. Lizzie currently owns and operates L.Huck Interiors, LLC and serves clients from Chicago to Milwaukee.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
After being laid off by two Chicago based design firms in 2009 Lizzie saw the recession taking a toll on her career. She did not let it stop her by offering design talent to businesses and clients that could hire her per project. Lizzie was inspired to hit the ground running by her father who is also a successful business owner. In November 2010 Lizzie opened L.Huck Interiors, LLC.
L.Huck Interiors, LLC. – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Lizzie has a background in Interior Design and began specializing in Green Design followed by working for Orchard Hill Cabinets, a semi-custom local cabinet company in Chicago. Today Lizzie offers services in both residential and commercial design. She offers design consultation services all the way to whole house renovations.
I am mostly proud of making all of this happen on my own. Lizzie made lemonade out of lemons after being laid off twice during the recession. She was offered many part time positions and turned those into a full service interior design company.
I’ve been told I’m really great with color and can nail paint colors on the first try!
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
I’ve been featured 3 times in the local newspaper. I often go to local businesses and people say, “Hey, are you that designer Lizzie I see in the newspaper?” Makes me feel like people are listening to my design advice!
