Unlimited Funds + Limited Taste = Nerd Mansions of San Francisco

A blank check for a budget and complete creative license: sounds like a decorating dream, no? Yet for many dot com millionaires throughout the city the prospect of decorating a home is as unappealing as... well, probably as the idea of hours of writing code is to the rest of us. The 'task' then naturally gets outsourced to someone else; in this case, it's interior designer to the (pixelated) stars, Ken Fulk. How this guy got tapped to become the go-to man for the young, Mensa-affiliated, and tasteless remains unknown, but according to the latest issue of C magazine (and Gawker's witty writeup on the article) he's the one who found the golden ticket. Check out a few shots of his creations on the site, and then come back and tell us what you think. Really, we need to hear some opinions on the 'French country' furniture paired with blue lacquered walls. Is this something we're just not hip to? Maybe we're getting too old for this sh...? Also, what do you think of giving complete control of the look of your home to someone else? Would it end up just feeling like a hotel or does it make sense for people with no interest in the decorative process? Discuss.
