Try Benjamin Moore's chicago blues #804 for a similar effect.

Thank you for these thoughts. Yes, I like the idea of a soft/blue grey. I will check out the PL color Cumulus. The wood tone idea is also wonderful, but may have to wait for the house on the lake....someday!

So pretty. You could get a similar look using Ben Moore's Sapphireberry/2063-60. Remember that the color will look a tad darker on the ceiling.

I was wondering what the depth of the porch is (from the front steps to the front door). It looks about 10-12 ft maybe? Getting ready to build mine, ive noticed most in my area are not used because they are too shallow.

Additionally, does this porch wrap the corner? If so what is the depth off the side of the house?

This looks wonderful. I appreciate any help. Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 12 Ways to Prep the Porch for Summer
Paint the ceiling blue. Historically, porch ceilings in the South were painted blue. I always heard the reason was that it would fool the bugs into thinking the ceiling was the sky, so they'd bug off and not nest there. Apparently this is an urban legend, and several different theories persist. Whatever the reason, it's a charming detail that has spread all over the country. Check out Sherwin-Williams "Haint Blue" paint to get this look.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 10 Elements of the Just-Right House
9. A smartly designed home is a good neighbor and engages the world around it ...
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Good Houses Are Good Neighbors Too
The in-between space is best when it's large enough to be a room of its own. A place for comfortable chairs, a table or two, maybe even a hammock. Remember that it is a room that's part of the home, so treat it with the same attention to detail as the other rooms. In fact, since this is the room that presents your face to the world, maybe treating it a little better than the other rooms is in order.
Lisa Frederick added this to Wedgwood Blue Returns
Painting porch ceilings blue to mimic the sky is a Southern tradition. For me, this one evokes those flawless summer days when the sky has the clear, pure blue of a flame.
Becky Harris added this to Porch Life: Banish the Bugs
Haint Blue ceilings. The blue ceiling is a bit of a rural myth; the thought behind it was that bugs would get confused and think the porch ceiling was the sky. It was also said to ward off ghosts, and Sherwin-Williams' Haint Blue paint is named after the ghosts of the Afro-Caribbean legends. Whether it works or not, it's a charming antique touch to add to your porch and an interesting conversation starter.It's kind of funny how viral this blue ceiling story is. After my friend Suzannah explained to me why her porch ceiling was blue, I had mine painted blue. Then my brother saw it and had his painted blue, and the whole thing went full circle a few years later when the painter came back for other work and told me the story of blue ceilings. I had to remind him that I was the one who originally told him the story, and he said he'd painted dozens of ceilings blue after repeating the story to his clients. It's an irresistible design move.
