    You have a very cute house, but there are so many colors and textures that you can't really see it. I think you should paint the front door and shutters black and the siding and gutters white. You could also do a whitewash on the brick.

    I’d do khaki on the siding and black on the shutters. Khaki with black trim on the door. A big wreath on the door that pulls in the colors of the brick.

    I'd use a deep forest green ...

      I like the idea of deep forest green but we have woods behind us and I thought it would blend in too much. My neighbor has that. Thansk for the suggestion.

      My husband thought we should do white siding and khaki gutters with burgundy door and shutters...I think that’s too many colors.
      Thank you:)

    Burgundy is good. I'd go with a warm khaki for the siding and gutters. there is a lot of "blonde" and warm tones with the roof color. It's a very cute house and I like all the textures. Burgundy will give it some depth and richness. Khaki will be a nice neutral to the compliment the stone colors.

      Thanks for the idea. I love the warm khaki idea with the burgundy. Do you think the the siding and gutters being the same color is too much?
      Thanks for your help!

    I am assuming you mean rain spouts. I really don't know many homeowners who have painted the rain gutters differently. I have seen photos of that, though. My house is white with white spouts. No one I know really pays that much attention to the spouts and gutters being painted other colors; so no, I don't think it would be too much khaki. Draw the attention elsewhere, I say. I like your house! Burgundy & Tan will class it up too; those are nice, rich colors to compliment your brick & stone. Best of Luck!

    think it would 'complement' and not blend in that much -- you've got a very 'OPEN FACE' home -- if you had lots of shrubbery/plantings in the front, I'd probably rethink that choice --- but I'm just not a fan of 'black'

    Thanks for the comment. I think we have decided to go with khaki siding and gutters and burgundy front door and shutters.

    Everyone has been very helpful. I appreciate your time:)
