Have you ever noticed that many New Orleans porch ceilings are painted blue?
There are several reasons why an owner might choose blue
- Some just like the feeling of extending the blue sky onto their porch
- Some believe that birds and wasps won’t build nests because blue tricks them into believing the ceiling is the sky
- Some subscribe to the old African belief that blue ceilings and doors keep ghosts away
No matter what you believe, I bet you’ll notice blue porch ceilings now.
