United Kingdom-based interior designers Colin and Justin designed and commissioned a heart-shaped heavy metal sculpture whilst filming their series ‘Colin and Justin’s Hotel Hell’ with Warner Brothers. Both the designers were in Louisbourg, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia – the heart of the Atlantic where this sculpture is located.
While sharing the images of the sculpture through their official Facebook account, Colin and Justin said, “We designed and commissioned this heavy metal sculpture whilst filming ‘Colin and Justin’s Hotel Hell’ with Warner Brothers. To this day, it remains one of our favourite installations, cliffside, here in Cape Breton.”
“Having allocated budget to building another sculpture, we’re considering a 12 feet star, similar in height to our dramatic heart. Or is there something you think would be better suited to our cliff side resort? Meanwhile – as storms ravaged the landscape, our heart stood fast, its patina deepening to a rich, rusty orange. It’s gorgeous. And so calming,” they added.
Meanwhile, the series Colin and Justin’s Hotel Hell started on Sunday, September 18, 2022, at 9 pm on Channel 5 and consisted of four hour-long episodes. In the series, Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan leave their city life in Toronto to take on their greatest challenge as they rebuild and reopen a hotel on Canada’s Atlantic coast.
In September 2022, before the release of their latest show, Colin and Justin said, “We’re pretty sure many folks will expect our latest show to be a frothy ‘before and after’, with lots of ‘pretties’ and transformations. Sure, there’ll be loads of that, but the series is much bigger than simply ‘bleed through’ shots of transformed rooms.”
They said that their brand new series is a ‘hearts on the sleeve’ account of the massive right angle turn they elected to make when the world began to change some three years back.
They added that most people advised them against this, but they were mostly determined and added, “The multi-ep observational documentary is a stark account of what happens when a lot goes right, but a lot more goes wrong. But hey: as we swapped up a huge chunk of our lives and transferred, at least seasonally, to one of Canada’s most remote locations, we never expected it to be easy. But we never expected it to be quite so tough.”
