my Ode to Green

Every once in awhile a color permeates my subconscious and conscious mind so intensely that it’s darn near all I think about.

Since my first foray onto the Viceroy Santa Monica hotel website several months ago I have been enamored with the color kelly green. Never before have I cared so much for green, but when I saw the Kelly Wearstler-designed green, black and white color combinations at the hotel in person, it created a new appreciation in me. Since then this new like has turned into something else. Not quite a passion as it’s more sensual than that. All I can say is when I see the color now I swoon. Some days I feel like I can taste it, touch it and feel it.

Here are some recent shots that are a tribute to my new love. Taken in Santa Monica, Seattle and Whidbey Island.

Viceroy Santa Monica. (swoon)


The amazing kelly green subway tile bathroom off the lobby. (swoon) (pardon the crappy quality and blur, this was taken with shaky hands, a slow shutter speed and a little point and shoot)



My girl in her favorite spot in her favorite park. When she emerges she smells like ivy. (swoon)



On a Washington State Ferry.




Every time we go to her park she hides behind this little bush. The branches rest across her face, and she peeks out at me, occasionally tucking herself back deeper into the ivy. And every time I say “I can still see you”. awwwww. 🙂


Couldn’t decide which shot I liked more, and this one has a stronger green, so I had to include it too, lol.




Hope you enjoyed my tribute to my new obsession! I will do more of these posts, and know just what my next color will be, and even the images to go along with it.

Cheers! 🙂

  4. I love color posts and I know what you mean about craving colors. I go in cycles too.
