5 Great Reasons To Choose Benjamin Moore Morning Sky Blue

Benjamin Moore Morning Sky Blue is the topic for today.

I’ve been focusing so much on neutrals and white paints lately, it’s time for a fresh look at some more colorful options.

I’m SO glad you guys are finding these real life examples of our own interior wall paint colors helpful.

I got some really positive feedback on my post on Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter.

So today, I’m featuring another wall paint from the time-honored tradition of Benjamin Moore paint colors, Morning Sky Blue.

If you’re looking for a pale blue paint color with cool, relaxing undertones, this could be the one!

I like to think of blue, especially pale blue almost as a neutral.

It works with so many different colors.

As you can see from these images, we tend to use this pretty blue color a lot on our ceilings.

I’m a big fan of painting the ceiling light blue.

It’s a great way to add a hint of color and dimension to any space.

If you’re not familiar with the term “haint blue” or “haint ceiling” – it’s an interesting southern tradition which I’ve adopted over the years.

And, you can also read more about my ceiling paint color picks here.

Benjamin Moore Morning Sky Blue looks great on exteriors too!

Our former home in New York had a beautiful back porch which we added a few years after we moved in.

It was one of my favorite features of our home.

Of course we had the ceilings of this porch painted in Benjamin Moore’s Morning Sky Blue, having already fallen in love with this paint color choice in our living room.

Eventually we painted the small ceiling above our front entrance porch with Benjamin Moore Morning Sky Blue as well!

A testament to our affinity for both the color and the tradition.

Ultimately you need to love the paint colors you choose for your home.

Which is why I can’t recommend trying it out as a sample in your space first.

Perhaps this is so obvious, but even the surrounding light from one room to another can differ and therefore change the look of any color.

Live with a few samples for a few days before making your final decision.

Be sure to test the color in natural and artificial light too!

Also, another great way to test out a paint color is to get large self sticking paint samples.

Benjamin Moore Morning Sky Blue is also known as 2053-70 Morning Sky Blue.

According to my local hardware store, it’s a popular blue color which is part of the Color Preview collection.

While I was there, I also asked which brushes and rollers they’d recommend if you’re doing this paint job yourself.

This set, which has everything you need in it, was the one he suggested.

I’m sure you can pick up something similar where you buy your paint.


Is Morning Sky Blue in the Benjamin Moore Aura paint line?

Yes it is!

And, it’s a great product.

I did a little digging around the internet and can confirm this color does come with this cutting-edge technology.

Benjamin Moore’s Aura paint is a premium paint product known for its latest technology and color rub-off resistance.

One of the main benefits of using Aura paint is its superior great depth of color and color vitality, which means that the paint will maintain its vibrant color even after years of exposure to sunlight, humidity and wear and tear.

Another advantage is its excellent coverage, which allows for a single coat to provide a uniform finish and save time and money.

Aura paint also has a low odor, making it a safer and more comfortable option for indoor use and a wide variety of surfaces.

This includes less-than perfect surfaces as well.

The luxurious matte finish has an easy-to-clean surface – gentle scrubbing with soap and water is all that is needed.

Additionally, Aura paint has a mildew resistance coating, preventing the growth of mold and mildew in damp or high-humidity environments.

Overall, using Benjamin Moore’s Aura paint ensures a long-lasting, durable and high-quality finish with beautiful results, making it a preferred choice for homeowners and professional painters alike.

You can also get this mixed in the sheen of your choice.

Does this paint have a high light reflectance value?

Yes. This is a pale blue shade which reflects light beautifully.

Morning Sky Blue has a mid to high LRV, light reflectance value.

Will this work in high-traffic areas?

Yes, this is a great color to use in both high and low-traffic areas of your home.

How much paint will I need?

The amount of wall paint you need will depend on the square feet of your room and many coats of paint you plan of using.

We recommend two coats.

You’ll need to calculate the total square footage of the actual amount of wall area involved in order to get a rough estimate of your precise needs.

What is the best finish for this color?

The most popular finish is satin as it’s in the middle of the sheen spectrum.

When applied correctly, a satin finish will have the slight sheen of eggshell, yet will be easier to clean and maintain with minimal washing.
