Donald Hill

Donald Hill, owner of Donald Hill Interiors, LLC (DHI), received formal training in architecture at Parsons School of Design in New York, Italy and France. In tandem with architecture, Donald studied French and Italian decorative arts. He has guest lectured at Altos de Chevon School of Design in the Dominican Republic and been a featured guest on WNBC “Weekend Today” in New York. At Donald Hill Interiors, Donald has specialized in high-end city, residential and commercial interiors since 1989. DHI has designed homes for a varied clientele including: David Bowie, Donald Fagen, Steve Martin, Mrs. Charles Bludorn, actress and producer Victoria Tennant, Time Warner Chairman and CEO Jeff Bewkes, Tishman Construction CEO Dan TIshman and screenwriter/playwright Marshall Brickman. Donald draws on a broad understanding of architectural and decorative arts styles and applies them in ways that reflect the individuality and functional needs of his clients. He believes that in good design, function comes first. His projects demonstrate an ability to integrate period elements with today’s conveniences and often feature furniture of his own design. The finished project is a harmonized blend of elements that look as if they have always belonged together. His projects upstate include faithful restoration of an Arts & Crafts house located in the historic Byrdcliffe community in Woodstock. While upstate, Donald has contributed his talents and energy to several multicultural arts organizations and fundraising efforts, and serves as a volunteer designer each year for the Roxbury Arts Group’s Over the Top Tabletops gala fundraiser. A collector of early American furniture and decorative arts and of Americana, Hill periodically donates a flag from his extensive collection of pre-1912 The MARK Project PO Box 247 Margaretville NY 12455 American flags to raise funds for 845.586. 3500 Delaware County charities.
