Haint Blue Ceiling - Our Front PorchFarmhouse Porch, Nashville

Front Porch Ideas and More: Our summer front porch first year we moved into our new home. We enjoy our light blue porch ceiling and how it complements our blue shutters and shakes. Did you know that a haint blue ceiling is believed to ward away mosquitoes and wasps because they believe the ceiling is the blue sky? Same goes for birds nesting. We don't know for sure but we can attest that we have not had any birds, wasps, hornets or mosquitoes bothering us on the porch. But the very best part is how soothing the color looks on our home.
