Named one of Lonny Magazine’s “Next Big Names In Design,” Young Huh is the woman behind many an immaculate home. Designing interiors, however, wasn’t always in the cards for the New York City-based creative. Not long ago, Young was blazing a trail towards becoming a lawyer. She even got so far as to pass the NY and NJ bar exams! But she quickly realized that while her mind was in the courtroom, her heart was somewhere else — somewhere prettier, where textiles and paint swatches beat out testimonials and witnesses. Armed with the confidence of family and friends, Young left the world of law behind and took an internship at a design firm. The rest really is history.
Since setting out on her own in 2007, Young has dealt with her fair share of difficult clients, navigated the ups and downs of being her own boss, and learned one valuable lesson: keep the faith. That’s what I admire most about Young. She embodies the belief that with an eye on the prize, and unwavering positivity, it’ll all be okay in the end. It took stamina, but holding tightly to that ideal has gotten her to where she is today. Click through to read all about Young’s rise to the top. Enjoy! —Garrett
