Charleston Home Exterior Paint Colors

September 3, 2019

Did y’all know that Sherwin-Williams has Exterior Historic paint palettes? The Sherwin-Williams Exterior Historic Palettes pay homage to key architectural styles throughout American history. It allows you to achieve a coordinated period look for the exterior of your home with these historically accurate paint color palettes for home exterior walls, trim and accents. When we purchased our home, we had to choose from the Sherwin-Williams “Colors of Historic Charleston” palette. These rich colors reflect Charleston’s worldly sophistication and Southern charm. One of the most important considerations for those who embrace the coveted Charleston style is color. Charleston is famous for its pastel colored homes and I wanted the house to have a coastal feel but still include a fun pop of color!

  • For the exterior pale blue-green color we selected Sherwin-Williams “Sullivan’s Island.” It is DCL019.
  • For the front door we selected Sherwin-Williams “Beach Flower.” It is DCL026.
  • For the trim we selected Sherwin-Williams “Charleston White.” It is DCR100.

  1. I was looking through the SW site and couldn’t find the color Sullivan’s island. Did they change the name?

    1. It is one of their Historic Charleston colors. You might have to specify that when you go to the store. They have an entire brochure of the CHS Historic colors.
