A longtime lover of the arts, Scott Hill worked odd jobs at galleries and played with his rock band, the Heroine Sheiks, before landing a freelance gig building retail windows at Ralph Lauren. Passionate and undeniably talented, he became the director of creative resourcing and design for the company before eventually opening his own store, Old Village Hall, in upstate New York in 2004. Five years later, he opened a second location in New York's East Village. A testimony to Scott's keen eye and eclectic taste, the shop is filled with vintage curiosities and local artisan goods, which are also sold on the shop's website. The real treasures, though, are Scott's creations. Inspired by everything from flea market photos to historical documents, Scott silkscreens photos and text over fabrics like classic toiles and Belgium linens. He uses the silkscreened fabric to reupholster antique furniture and also makes throw pillows, totes, and more.
