September 3, 2020 – The words mansion and commodore enticed Ken Fulk to sign on to design Auberge Resorts Collection’s latest effort in Austin, Texas—the reimagining of a 1928 country home into a sprawling luxury hotel. “I’ve loved the word mansion since I was a little kid,” says the interior designer with a laugh. It also didn’t hurt that he was already a fan of the notoriously offbeat Texas city, having regularly patronized the Round Top Antiques Fair, done some residential work in the area, and enjoyed the music scene. “It is an extraordinary property—10 acres of bucolic giant oaks, a stream and a little bridge, and a 1920s mansion with formal gardens? It had all of my childhood-like fantasies.”
