Boathouse Turned into Chic Nautical Man Cave

Architectural Digest featured White House decorator Michael S. Smith's work who was tapped to turn this former boathouse into an guest house doubling as man cave at Lake Geneva. The boathouse sits in front of the main house, so the owner wanted to turn this into something fun for her husband and his friends and desired a pre-war yacht feel. The owner and Smith studied design elements of various boats from the 20's and 30's. There is lots of dark wood millwork,  beautiful blue and white fabrics with mixed patterns and nautical accents throughout with the porthole type lights and mirrors, nautical flag chair covers and more.
