Haint Blue Ceiling and Floor. In many porches across the south, you'll easily spot the haint blue ceiling. As many of you already know, the idea is that this color blue either wards off evil spirits or chases away bugs.
Create a seamless transition to an outdoor sitting area by paying the same attention to detail as you would when decorating indoors. Here, the variation in tile size adds interest and a subtle hint of pattern to this clean porch design, columns add architectural support and a classical vibe, and a beaded-board ceiling adds texture. Two porch ceiling fans circulate air and keep the space cool and refreshing.
