Bay Harbor, Michigan
This family retreat nods to its lakeside location without resorting to nautical cliche, thanks to vividly patterned, richly textured fabrics, furnishings, antiques, art and rugs - some fine, some found, some custom, and some even from Pottery Barn. With five sons and a host of regular visitors, its owners demanded fuss-free interiors that nonetheless display their sophisticated sense of style. From vintage textiles to hand-dyed, rice paper-clad walls, this home delights and surprises at every turn. Even the custom interior of the Sabre docked outside is anchored by a thoughtfully conceived design that echoes the residence just steps away.
