San Francisco designer Ken Fulk may be the toast of the town, but it's when he escapes to his Victorian cottage on Cape Cod that he feels most at home.
In the parlor of designer Ken Fulk's Victorian cottage in Provincetown, Massachusetts, a 19th-century scroll-arm sofa is upholstered in a Ralph Lauren Home plaid, the antique sea captain's chest was purchased at the Brimfield Antique Show, the pink armchair is from the 19th century, and the 18th-century leather sofa is English. An antique Khotan rug tops the original maple floor, and the walls are painted in Farrow & Ball's Setting Plaster.
The front door's shutters are painted in Benjamin Moore's Chrome Green, and a vintage sign was made into a bench.
The shingled house was built around 1880, overlooking the harbor.
