Ken Fulk, Celebrity Designer

By Annie Ho

Ken Fulk is a San Francisco based celebrity interior designer and the creative director of his design studio, Ken Fulk Inc. Known for his exquisite yet natural talent, the designer is sought out by those who want to turn their dream house into reality. Fulk’s clientele comprises, among others, influential individuals including musician, Pharrell Williams, and billionaire entrepreneur and philanthropist Sean Parker. His work attracts many top executives in the tech industry here in the Bay Area. What makes him stand out is his distinctive yet bold style. Mixing classical and contemporary elements in artful ways, his creativity complements the ultra-practicality of so much Silicon Valley pragmatism with a more cosmopolitan finish. He is known for original concepts and his talent to transform spaces into unique ultimate and personalized oases. His projects are characterized by pops of color and layered textures and designs.

Fulk spent his childhood in a small town in Virginia. While in college, he majored in English and History. He moved to Boston while working for his own textile company before making his latest move to San Francisco. He is self-taught in interior design. His work not only includes designing homes but also executing the interiors of hotels, restaurants, and even transforming a deteriorating Romanesque Revival cathedral into a completely refreshed retail and commerce space with a free-standing mezzanine. His own home is nothing short of spectacular. In an interview by the New York Times, Fulk points out the favorite space in his mid-century, Clarendon Heights house – the Great Room with a 26-foot tall window – overlooking the best view in the city.

His work appears in a completely renovated English Tudor in the prestigious neighborhood of Old Palo Alto at 369 Churchill Avenue. Ken Fulk designed the recently-listed, ultimate luxurious retreat within this breathtaking estate that sits on over one acre of land. Here, his signature style manifests in detailed textures in the ceiling, mosaic tile floors, and unique, stained-glass windows that showcase his creative yet elegant style.
