Sky blue is the shade of blue known as the “universal healer”. It is a calm color that de-stresses and helps people find clear thinking to solutions of problems.

Houses Painted with the Color Blue
Houses painted with the color blue, or even just doors painted the color blue, give visitors a feeling of calm and peace before they enter a home. Blue doors don’t have near as many colors it goes with like a red door does though, so if you want a blue door you would have to take a look at the color scheme of the exterior of the home first.
The Color Blue Mixes Well
Blue is not a color you can overdo on a home as long as everything isn’t all the same shade of blue (you don’t want people thinking a smurf lives with you). Also doors and window trim that are painted a darker shade of blue than the rest of the house, usually looks better than a house painted in a darker color blue than the window trim and doors.
