My New Blue Ceiling



My painter was here yesterday, and it's nothing but blue sky (ahem, ceiling) in my sunroom from now on.




The paint colors I was considering were BM Palladian Blue, BM Palladian Blue (mixed at 50%), SW Sea Salt (my BFF), and SW Topsail.

And, the winner was…..  Topsail!





It is a pale blue/green color that is noticeable, but not overpowering.





The formerly yellow walls were painted BM White Dove. Painting the walls meant the hand painted mural, commissioned by the previous owners, had to go too...






That didn't bother me much, but I think it broke my mother's heart just a little bit. (Sorry, mom.)





I am loving the blue ceiling, and keep going into the sunroom to admire it. After the winter we've had, it's nice to look up and see blue :)

  7. We bought a vacation property on Salt Spring Island and the previous owners painted the living room ceiling pale blue. This is not common in Canada and I love it!
