I have always had at least one room that is sky blue several times I have done blue kitchens and always loved the results.

I have never been much of a blue person, but it seems like if I have a two story home, the upstairs is always sky blue. . Just feels natural. But I try to remember where I live. The sky in Colorado is bluer than in Los Angeles. Central oregon or the beach. I usually paint the ceiling as well as the walls blue especially if there are allot of windows. Matching the predominant blue of the sky makes the walls and ceiling disappear, , ,

I often paint porch ceilings sky blue and believe it DOES keep wasps from building nests there. It does make the area feel open to the sky.
