Win $500 Gift Card From Pottery Barn + Ken Fulk

Would you like to win a $500 gift card from Pottery Barn and see a Autumn dinner party that I put together to celebrate their new Ken Fulk collection? As a design writer, I come across many beautiful products yet Pottery Barn is one American retailer that I return to when seeking beautiful, approachable and quality pieces for my home. I've been shopping them since I was in college because they are one of the best sources for creating stunning interiors. As Autumn nears, I'm dreaming up some tabletop ideas for the gatherings that I'll host... That is why when Pottery Barn teamed up with San Francisco-based designer Ken Fulk, I had to see what he was designing for them. This is their exclusive, first ever product collaboration so it's a pretty big deal for Pottery Barn fans and those who love Ken Fulk because they can bring a high-end decorator's touch to their home without breaking the bank. Here is a glimpse... potterybarn_kenfulk

This exclusive line is so well-edited that you can mix and match without worry that items won't work together because they all match beautifully. In addition to tabletop, you will find furniture, lighting, soft furnishings and so much more. I have my eye on the tailored bed skirt and the orange lacquer boxes because they are so chic. To show you a few items from this collection in my home, I've dressed my recent dinner party with the Ken Fulk painted canvas table runner, painted canvas placemats and spoon straws for our gin & tonic bar. I love the heavy deep blue/black canvas of the runner and placemats and that the off-white color that mimics sea salt - pure (not creamy) but also not pure white - And I enjoy how well they work in my very light and bright home, the contrast is just great and illustrates how well his collection works in a variety of interiors.

Known for his exuberant style, Ken Fulk is an American decorator and event designer from Virginia with a staff of nearly 50 headquartered in San Francisco, California where he lives and works. He designs for hot spots and for high profile clients which is why his collaboration with Pottery Barn is so special - it's his signature style but available to all budgets. His signature style is a mix of European (English countryside mixed with Paris townhouse) combined with classic American Federal style so there are nods of his European travels and his childhood in the south, in his work. A fan of Oscar Wilde, like me, I love that his favorite guest of honor to have at a party would be Wilde himself.

Have you ever been asked that question, who would you love to have at a dinner party? Let's play a little game... But first, here's my early Autumn table with his very own table runner, placemats and spoon straws.
