Haint Blue. Blue Porch Ceilings - The history behind the tradition of painting porch ceilings blue. Homeowners have been adding a touch of blue paint to their porch ceilings for decades -- and it's not just for a pop of color. In the South Carolina Lowcountry (where this trend first began), a turquoise, periwinkle or powder blue porch ceiling is said to extend daylight as dusk begins to fall, and many even believe that it helps keep bugs away.
