44 The Movie in His Mind: Ken Fulk N o one infuses a space with personality quite like Ken Fulk. He brings cinematic flair 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 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 re- imagine 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 (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. 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, Dallas Design District. A storybook Tudor estate on five acres in Silicon Valley built in 1921 as the country estate of a prominent San Francisco family is reimagined by Ken Fulk with high-gloss lacquer and art.
