Every so often I wash the porch I built and I remember how happy I felt knowing I could do so something like this. (I did not do structural, just design, molding, floors, siding, insulation, ceiling, & finish) #myFirstBigProject. (Oh, and railings are purchased plastic, trim is not wood but Azek) (Azek no fun but lasts and holds paint & loved one insisted on vinyl. It was a compromise) #haintblue. ( did I ever learn a lot. There is a reason molding has developed the way it has. The newer pieces cover the seams in the older pieces, lesson learned. Will not be forgotten)

Playing around yesterday with Potters David Stuempfle and Michelle Erickson while loading the Amagama . Our friend Robert Hunter Editor of Ceramics In America has been researching voodoo culture recently , so it was decided that we put a dead spider and or a dead frog in Michelle’s Ring Jug . We talk about Conjuring and Haints . Haint is a synonym for ghost a common feature of southern oral and literary traditions. In the south some folks painted their porch ceiling Haint blue to keep the haints away. #haintblue #haint #southern #woodfiredpottery #seagrovepotters #ceramics #conjuring #frog #clay #spider at Moore County, North Carolina

The perfect shade of Haint blue for the front porch!

I definitely subscribe to the haint blue school of thought when it comes to porch ceilings especially those of the Victorian era. Whatever the reason sky, insects, tradition...I think it works perfectly. #porch #ceiling #victorian #paint #frontporch #haintblue at Takoma Park Historic District

What color is your porch ceiling? Here is my more subtle, lighter take on the ever popular traditional ‘Haint Blue.’ Any guesses on the color? It actually reads even lighter in person... . . . . . #kellyrogersinteriors #boldserenity #KRIProject1896 #victorian #porchgoals #frontporch #haintblue #historichome #exteriorcolor #exteriordesign #georgianrevival #newenglandstyle #fifthwall #alwayslookingup #classicism #architecture #colorlove #ihavethisthingwithcolor #powerofpaint #trendmeetstradition #curbappeal #bostondesigner #bostonblogger #IDCDesigners at Waban, Massachusetts

In between cookie orders the hubs & I are re-doing our back porch.

Beaufort Blue and Beech Nut Gray Stain + Finish pair perfectly with each other. They were great color choices for this pair of nightstands. Another beautiful job by @jcfarmhousedesigns.

I’ve wanted a haint blue porch ceiling before we even moved to the south. You see them on all of the southern homes, especially in Charleston. The back porch, which is my #1 hang out spot, had a grungy, rusty, white ceiling fan and plain white ceiling. I cleaned up, painted and repurposed the fan using satin black spray paint and a touch of gold paint. The Atmospheric blue paint (Sherwin Williams) on the ceiling, is the icing on the cake. • • • • •From Wikipedia: Haint blue is a pale shade of blue that is traditionally used to paint porch ceilings in the Southern United States. The tradition originated with the Gullah in Georgia and South Carolina, but has also been adopted by Southerners. Originally, haint blue was thought by the Gullah to ward haints, or ghosts, away from the home, and more recently thought to scare away the bugs and wasps. #haintblue #sherwinwilliams #southernliving #southernporch #repurposed #colorismyjam

More details of my piece from the series “Ruina Avem Maris / Fall of a Seabird” in the #Altarations show at @dorchesterartproject. This body of work is constantly growing with my life shifts but its anchor is my relationship with the late Our Lady of Good Voyage Chapel and iterations of Sirens, seawitches and matriarchal, environmental alarm systems. I’ve had many wild and life changing experiences this summer that can be difficult to make sense of. Dreamlike guides and signs flash and flourish everywhere I look but I’m unsure of what lies behind them. No surprise when I pull the 7 of cups- represented here in this discarded baby pool I found in the closet of the gallery 😆 #haintblue #asabovesobelow #sevenofcups #sirens #seawitch #ourladyofgoodvoyage #foundobjects #milkpaint #altar #mariamolteni #tarot at Dorchester Art Project

@lauradalyliving

A blue close to my home and heart is Haint Blue. A haint, or hant, is a rural word for a spirit or ghost that haunts the living. In the South, there's a rich culture brought to the area with the enslaved from Africa that includes blue porch ceilings #haintblue #historyofblue #lauradalyliving #livingbetterbylaura #neworleans at New Orleans, Louisiana

@lauradalyliving

Another Haint Blue tradition says it's supposed to resemble water. The story is that haints can’t cross water. A blue gallery ceiling, above the front door, prevents haints from entering the house. I’m not sure why the tradition didn’t extend to painting floorboards. Wouldn’t that appear more water-like to the gullible spirits? #haintblue #lauradalyliving #livingbetterbylaura #historyofblue #riverranch at River Ranch Town Square

@lauradalyliving

Two enduring colonies of slave descendants still exists in South Carolina and Georgia. In South Carolina its the Gullah communities. The Geechee settlements began on the Sea Islands of Georgia. After the Civil War, the Gullah and Geechee remained isolated due to the desolate nature of the barrier islands when slavery was abolished. As a result, both groups have retained the valuable folklore and old traditions that existed during slavery. Ghosts, conjurers, and spirits were part of their beliefs. Charms, incantations and spells were used to protect those plagued by spirits of the dead not yet “crossed over”. One Gullah and Geechee story says the color blue scares away troublesome spirits. In their version, haints don’t like blue because it's a heavenly color, like the sky. They are afraid of anything heavenly. It's created a paint tradition that endures as Haint Blue #haintblue #historyofblue #lauradalyliving #livingbetterbylaura #Gullah #Geechee #charleston at Charleston, South Carolina

One theory, of Haint Blue, is the color fools wasps and mosquitos said to mistake blue ceilings for the sky. Prefering shade, the blue paint encourages them to go elsewhere. This theory assumes these creatures cannot tell a man-made ceiling from Mother Nature’s endless expanse of sky. But... this is not Haint Blue #haintblue #lauradalyliving #livingbetterbylaura #historyofblue #charleston at Charleston, South Carolina

You can find Haint Blue porch ceilings in old southern cities such as New Orleans, Charleston, and Savannah to preserve the historic details of old architecture. Its also seen in newly built homes lovingly carrying on the traditions. This historic look now varies from sky blue to turquoise. Whether you like modern decor or a mix of contemporary and antiques - a blue exterior ceiling fits any scheme #haintblue #historyofblue #lauradalyliving #livingbetterbylaura #riverranch at River Ranch Town Square

@ourvictorianitalianate

I had some seriously charming porte cochere inspiration photos (when we were building this house) but ours really turned out more utilitarian, than charming. I still love it, and it serves its purpose, but if I could have, I would have done more. Our plan was to brick the area under the portico, with brick steps into the house. This was all done toward the end of our project, and quite honestly, it was time to make some concessions to the “want list”. That said, I still plan to dress this space up someday, and hopefully bring in some of the charm I always had in mind. Where did you make concessions in your build? . . . #portecochere #portico #sideentry #exterior #exteriordesign #haintblue #driveway #design #italianate #victorian #historic #addition

For those wondering how to protect their homes from spirits this Ghost Month: Ever heard of “haint blue” paint? It can actually refer to different shades of blue that resemble the sea. Apparently, this paint can help keep spirits from entering your home. Africans of the American South believed that ghosts cannot cross bodies of water. According to Southern traditions, painting porches, doors and windows with haint blue can fool ghosts into thinking you are surrounded by water.—Arch. Vittoria Lou Mawis
