The rock was originally unearthed by one of the men working to tame the property’s landscape as they began building, and it was placed in what would become the home’s backyard. “He said that he set it up for the kids because it looked so much like a bear. And, it’s funny, because the rock stayed there for two years – the entire time we were building. When it came time to move it, I wanted it to have a good spot. The kids remembered coming out and the rock being a constant. It’s a fun memory of the early discovery of this property,” the homeowner says. Knowing the significance of Bear Rock and wanting to reflect the home’s exterior in the interior spaces, Goddard had the door handle on the front door cut as a silhouette of the rock’s shape. The homeowner says, “It’s those little details that make it feel special here.” DESIGNER DETAILS FROM CHRIS GODDARD: What were the goals for the home’s style and design? For this project, I wanted to create a style that blended with the setting, so I came up with the term “Ozark Boho Chic.” I wanted to bring the outside inside in a casual, yet elegant and timeless way. What elements were key to ensuring the inside of the home would be as peaceful as the surrounding property? I was heavily inspired by nature for this project. I selected native stone for the floors, fossil stone slabs for counters, used heavy textured grass cloth for the walls and tons of details – all that represented different aspects of the beautiful setting. In addition, a neutral color palette, a departure from the colorful projects we had done for this homeowner in the past, add to the sense of calm and tranquility throughout the spaces.
