 The lovely and talented Sarah Richardson says that she hates white ceilings and does most anything to avoid them. Well, that’s not good news for my house because, in general, the ceilings are white, white, white. While creating a playroom for our new baby boy, though, we’re taking Sarah’s advice into consideration and going with a blue ceiling. Now to find that perfect shade… We’re crossing our fingers that these beautiful photos will get us started. Hope you enjoy!

We love this gray/blue shade, but every time we’ve attempted this one it comes out looking way too blue. Anyone know of a perfect grue? Yup. That’s gray and blue mashed together. Kind of like Brangelina. It also means “to shudder” if you’re studying for the SAT. We, thank heaven, are not.

LOVE the striped walls, which is giving me another playroom idea…

A tour guide in Charleston told me that painting your porch ceiling blue keeps the bugs away. Ours was blue in our old house in New Bern, and I actually think it helped!

Or maybe it was the ceiling fans that kept the bugs away. Either way, only steps from the river we had very little insect traffic.
