On Valentine’s Day we saw this beautiful driftwood heart. On today’s blog I wanted to share a few more details of this stunning piece and how we got to the end result.
We collaborated with Citrine Living on this driftwood heart. This item is a special reminder of the client’s late husband and will meaningfully sit on her bedroom wall. We had to make the design perfect.
The design uses what we term as the “Robert’s cut”, which turns a regular moulding on its side and creates a box. We crafted a gold frame from Larson-Juhl at the base for this cut and then placed a deep white frame again using moulding from Larson-Juhl with a gold matching filet into the Robert’s cut frame to create a shadowbox.
We mounted the heart on an off-white raw silk mat to add warmth and ensured that there was a lot of space around the item to give the heart the importance it deserves and as well provides balance for the wall that it will hang on.
We opted to not put glass on this piece so that the roundness of the item protrudes beyond the frame and gives it a free and open feeling.
I wish you could all have the chance to see this piece in person and to meet the amazing owner. This was just one of those projects.
