It may be an urban myth, but we've also heard several different people say that the blue keeps away the mud daubers - they see the blue as the sky. I don't know enough about the optical physiology of wasps to confirm or deny this. Nice story about the spirits, though, and better than mud daubers.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Enhance what you're already got. "When we bought the house the swing was there, and we just repainted the porch floor and ceiling," says Annie Coggan of Coggan + Crawford Architecture + Design. Both colors are standard Southern porch colors. The blue for the ceiling is traditional and functional since blue repels wasps, or so the lore goes. The gray floor is porch gray, which hides dirt and pollen in the spring."Coggan's favorite color is orange, "so bits of it are always placed about the house we live in, and this chair was a gift from a friend," she says. "This photo was taken in the early fall during harvest season in a rural Southern community, hence the bucket of gourds."

In moderate climates, shiplap can be a good exterior choice. But for more extreme temperatures, a tongue and groove joint would be preferred.Browse more shiplap photos

The floor is basic benjamin moore epoxy deck paint. We often use the platinum gray, but here we used the one that is next darkest. I haven't checked that paint lately for VOCs, so I don't know if we'd use the paint again

Great color for exterior covered ceiling porches. I have built over a dozen estate homes and have had only two clients where a blue painted ceiling was selected. I was concerned about the color selection until it was painted and it looked great! "Don't be scared of color", as my wife always says. I now recomend on the estate and traditional homes that we build for clients who are not afraid to use color, that is anything other than white.
