    Start with medium blue, and the windows white trim.

      Personally, I would stay away from blue as a house color because it is proven that blue does not sell a house. If they plan to stay in the house, then by all means , go blue.

    I would go dark slate gray with bright white trim. And paint the front door a candy apple red.

      Long ago my family home was a dark charcoal gray with white trim and a bright red front door. I always loved that on that particular cape. Later on it was painted Lighthouse Yellow and it became the known as the landmark yellow house on our road. It was a soft yellow and looked good with a gray shingled roof like your's. Now that house is a dull clay and it is not at all a pretty look, but it is a modern choice, just not a standout anymore. Our very old house here in Maine is weathered gray shingles...a traditional look here.

    go back to the original or a red wood stain. If it is anything like hair color the combination or grey and red make a pretty brown, since you have fade spots, you will get highlights too. For an even color, paint it.

    My home is light gray with charcoal trim and white accents. I recently painted my front double doors candy apple red and keep getting compliments! NOT tomato red (which has an orange base) but candy apple (just like the snack) which has a pink base.....SO STRIKING!

    I will - as soon as it stops raining!

    I'm a blue person so would pick something from the color wheel in that family.
