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 change…

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

I got some really postive feedback on my recent post on Benjamin Moore’s Sea Salt.

So today, I’m featuring another color we’ve used again and again in our homes…Benjamin Moore’s 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 lovely 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”  – you can read more about this southern tradition here.

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 (while I haven’t personally tried this -as it’s very new to market)  is to get large self sticking paint samples.

This sounds so great!

No messy paint cans to deal with before you commit! Win/win!

If you’re at all curious, you can find them here and try it out as a sample in your home first!

Hopefully, you found this post helpful.

If you do end up using Benjamin Moore Morning Sky Blue in your home, let me know!

Even better, send me a photo – I’d love to see it.

By the way, you can always see more of our home right here.

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

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

While I was there, I also asked which some 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.
