MR. KEN FULK’S MAGICAL WORLD words by chesie breen · photography by douglas friedman photography One can’t help but fall under the engaging spell of the renowned designer and event planner Ken Fulk. His recent book, Mr. Ken Fulk’s Magical World, chronicles his life’s work with the theatricality of Orson Welles and the old-school charm of a Virginia native whose youth was spent parsing the architecture of Thomas Jefferson and asking, “What if?” He credits his upbringing in Virginia—where decorating, housekeeping, and entertaining are inherently equal parts of an unwritten code—for inspiring his career. Fulk is as revered for his outrageously inspired, stunning events as he is for his luxurious, narrative-driven decorating, both commercial and residential. Book by Ken Fulk · Principal Photography by Douglas Friedman · Foreword by Cornelia Guest · Published by Abrams, New York
