Echo Park church puts its faith in “Madonna” blue and “Opera Evening” green

So, what do you think of The Cathedral Center of St. Paul’s new color scheme? Or, as one church member put it, “color scream.” The peacock palette is the work of priest and designer Cindy Evan Voorhees, according to a recent issue of the Episcopal News Update. The exterior colors pick up the theme found inside of the Echo Park church and headquarters of the Episcopalian Diocese of Los Angeles. But colors like these simply can’t be called blue, red or green, according to a recent issue of the Episcopal News:

“The formerly white building now sports a palette of colors with names like “Ferncliffe,” “Sheer Exposure” and “Golden Mist” (describing the tan shades, from lightest to darkest), as well as “Opera Evening” (green), “Old Brick” (rust) and “Madonna” (blue).”

I’ve become a fan of Madonna blue and Old Brick. But will these colors hold up over time? Only God knows.
