Feeling Blue

I'm feeling blue.

I'm totally feeling blue on the ceiling.

I've always loved blue on a porch ceiling.

But, it looks great in other rooms as well.

I LOVE this room….


Since I'm really feeling blue right now, I've decided to paint my sunroom ceiling. I'm going for the "haint blue" look that's common on southern porch ceilings.

This is the sunroom before the addition of my pink rug...

The pale yellow walls (and floral mural -- sorry!) are going to be painted white, and the ceiling will be a blue-green color. I've got a swatch of BM Palladian Blue on the ceiling now, but it's a bit too strong. I'm thinking I'll try it mixed at 50%. I'm also going to get some samples of SW Topsail and Polar Sky.

I'll let you know how the colors work.

Have you got the blues … on your ceiling?


  1. These rooms are all so pretty. I love blue ceilings on porches and can't wait to see your room. Hugs, Marty

  2. I actually have blue ceiling on my screened porch and my living room here in my home in SC and absolutely love it!

  3. Carolyn that's going to look soooooo pretty! Can't wait to see it done!
