The Mary Heaton Vorse House, 466 Commercial Street

 Please join us for a conversation between designer Ken Fulk and Jared Bowen, Executive Arts Editor, GBH.

For over 30 years interior designer and worldbuilder extraordinaire Ken Fulk has crafted some of the most enchanting spaces around the globe. From homes, hotels, restaurants and bars to members clubs, private planes and unforgettable events, no one can throw a party or infuse a space with as much personality and provenance as Ken Fulk. The designer—who has been named to Architectural Digest’s AD100, Elle Decor’s A-List and has been twice nominated for a James Beard Award for his hospitality projects—is known for his signature blend of cinematic flair and layered spaces that pay homage to the traditional influences of his Virginian upbringing.

In his book The Movie In My Mind, Fulk takes readers behind the scenes of some of his most extravagant endeavors, coupling stunning photographs with personal tales of inspiration and intent behind each project. Every new space starts with a story; with visions running through his mind as if on a film strip: a Napa Valley farmhouse that honors the region’s rural hills dotted with cabernet vines; an action-packed superyacht that calls to mind 007, Bullitt, and Foxy Brown; or infusing a Manhattan clubhouse with his childhood dreams of grandeur: tall ceilings, pre-war moldings, shiny marble floors and a grand entrance.

With captivating texts from Fulk himself that invite the reader to step inside his wonderous mind, The Movie In My Mind is a delicious, maximalist dream.
