As I mentioned in a previous post, Mark and I really got a kick out of the retro "Doo-Wop" style of architecture of many of the motels in Wildwood. Our favorite, by far, was the Caribbean, above, which was right across the street from where we stayed. Above you can see the neon sign which glowed bright fuschia-red at night and the walking ramp that leads up to the ultra-cool lounge above. Below is a view of the pool from the lounge deck. The predominant colors here were yellow and lime green.
On the next block over was the Bel-Air motel, which we could also see from our motel. The aqua louvred doors, bright white walls, and hot pink umbrella kept catching my eye - what a great color palette! (It reminded me of my "Margaritaville" charm bracelet, which you can see by clicking here.)
This morning I dug around in my stash and came up with these fabrics that might make the same fun-in-the-sun statement. I would love to make something with them, but I'm not sure what yet. Maybe a larger abstract piece.
Meanwhile, I'm already lining up some other fabrics that would also work with the fern motif.
