A popular design choice, this porch ceiling is also painted blue for a playful nod to traditional style. Porch ceilings are painted blue, a tradition that began with culture. The color evokes the water and was said to keep evil spirits away from the home. The traditional ceiling color is a soft greenish blue hue known as Haint Blue across the region. This tradition has spread north, and blue porch ceilings can be found across the country. A fan keeps this lovely area cool on warm days, and curtains add privacy to the space.
When temperatures rise, we like to spend days and nights on the terrace. The color palette of the terrace of the house reflects the colors of nature, ranging from brown earth on moss green, yellow and cherry red sand. The outer sides of the house can be decorated with plaster panels in clay or wood. As flooring, natural stone or rustic flooring an ideal complement. The rural areas makes the stay on the terrace for a special romantic experience.
