“The Business of Design…!”

As the “command center” of Bonesteel Trout Hall, Jill Hall has her capable head and experienced hands in every aspect of the firm’s day-to-day operations to ensure the finest client service. As Chief Operations Officer, she holds a unique role in a design studio, and one that she and her partners felt was essential when they established their eponymous firm. Jill’s diverse business background and astute acumen ensure that all processes runs effectively, orders are processed efficiently and clients’ needs are best represented among the many vendors behind each Bonesteel Trout Hall project.

During the initial design consultation, Jill will work with the lead design partner and her team to develop the budget and timeline for the project. She will oversee the contract agreement and track the details of each project as it comes to life through the specification process. She considers herself the fiduciary of each of the firm’s design clients, and is always available to address questions regarding the logistics, budgets and timing of the work in progress.

Jill was born into a family immersed in the design field in Southern California. With a residential interior designer mother and real estate developer father, she grew up understanding how successful design businesses must operate for long-term sustainability and the greatest satisfaction. Jill is motivated every day by this deep historical and relevant knowledge. After earning her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California at Los Angeles in Political Science, she began her career in the marketing department of a high-end homebuilder. She then joined her family’s custom home business where she managed the company’s finances and client relations. In 1993, she joined Hannah Gordon Design where she worked with future partners Heidi Bonesteel and Michele Trout.

Sharing entrepreneurial zeal, Jill, Michele, and Heidi joined forces to form Bonesteel Trout Hall in 2004. The firm creates fresh Southern California beauty in all its work. This attitude, paired with its founders’ expert education and business acumen, make Bonesteel Trout Hall a much sought after interior design firm, regardless of client geography.

With over twenty years experience, the firm’s prodigious body of creative work has been recognized by myriad national and regional publications including Architectural Digest, Coastal Living, House Beautiful, Interiors, Luxe, and California Home Design, as well as numerous websites and blogs. Most recently, the firm is the 2013 winner of the Pacific Design Center’s Stars on the Rise Award as well as the 2012 recipient of Traditional Home’s prestigious New Traditionals Award. Jill lives in Newport Beach with her husband and two children at home while her oldest son attends UCLA and is on the football team. She and her family enjoy outdoor activities and barbequing on the weekends.
