Designer Visit: Barbara Hill in Texas

Discovered via You Are the River: the work of designer Barbara Hill. A native Texan, Hill was born on the Gulf Coast and lived in Rio de Janeiro and Santa Fe before settling in Houston. She worked for the de Menils at the Rice Museum and owned the Cusack Gallery in the early seventies (she was an early champion of Sol LeWitt and other then-unknown conceptual artists). To see more of her interiors projects, go to Barbara Hill Design; to see a slideshow of her own stripped-to-the-bones Houston apartment, go to Dwell.
