The Movie in His Mind

No one infuses a space with personality quite like Ken Fulk. He brings cinematic oeuvre to his layered interiors, be they in a home, a hotel, restaurant, members-only club, or private plane. Fulk, who’s based in San Francisco and is known as much for his unforgettable parties as for interior design, says he starts each project with a story resembling a film in his head — a concept explored in his new book, Ken Fulk: The Movie in My Mind (Assouline 2022).

Fulk, a member of the Architectural Digest AD100 and Elle Decor A-List and a two-time James Beard Design Award nominee, reveals his inspiration and intent while working on a Napa Valley farmhouse, a dramatic Texas home, and luxe Carbone restaurant in Miami, among others. Fulk is the founder of Saint Joseph’s Arts Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting local artists at revitalized historic landmarks in San Francisco and Provincetown.

Design advice: “As someone who lives in historic houses and has had the great privilege to be the steward of several iconic buildings in my career, I consider it an obligation to honor the original spirit of a place. Our goal is to reimagine these homes and destinations as better versions of themselves, amplifying the decrepit grandeur or enhancing the integral character for the next generation of storied lives.” — Ken Fulk

 

What, When, Where: Cocktails, illustrated talk, and book signing with Ken Fulk, Friday September 23, 5 to 7 pm, at The Rug Company, 1626 Hi Line, Suite B, Dallas Design District.
