Let’s hear it for Charleston, capitol of Southern charm. Between the pastel dream homes + old American architecture, it's no surprise everyone has been flocking to South Carolina’s oldest city.

We’ve teamed up with Sherwin-Williams® to create a cozy reading nook inspired by the darling pastel hues of Charleston.

This renovation is all thanks to the Sherwin-Williams® ColorSnap® Visualizer app, which helps us create color palettes from our own photos.

Each shade the app extracts directly aligns to a Sherwin-Williams paint color, so we can paint our homes in shades *directly* taken from an image.

Here’s how it works: Simply snap a photo of your choice, and the ColorSnap Visualizer app will match the colors in your photo + create a color palette for you to customize.

Why a reading nook, you say? Well, curling up with a novel in a cozy corner of our own home is the next best thing to reading on a lush, airy Charleston front porch, that’s why.

The key to coziness is layers — of textiles, patterns, and even wall paint. We layered stripes of pastel tones on the walls to add even more personality to the room.

First, we painted horizontal blocks of Reliable White SW 6091 and Extra White SW 7006. We then added a thick vertical stripe of Jazz Age Coral SW 0058.

We finished off the walls by adding hexagonal shelving, painted with Alyssum SW 6589, Silvermist SW 7621, Jazz Age Coral SW 0058, and Easy Green SW 6450.

Psst: Those darling shelves are directly inspired by the painted porch ceilings found throughout Charleston. The magic is in the details! Scroll on for some more photos of this darling reading nook.
