    I think painting it to match the roof would look great.

    Hi Rita: Here is my suggestion: Take this picture and any other you have of your house, make several copies, in colour, whiting out the shutters and door so they appear white on your copies. Then, get out your crayons and, on the copies, colour the white shutters and door the colour you think you might like, and see which one you like best. Then, you can go ahead and paint to your hearts delight:) You can even go to a paint store or home improvement store and get their take on the colours you have chosen. Sometimes a fresh eye helps. Good luck

    Painting shutters the lighter trim color (Light tan?) would look classic, with a lacquer black door, such as found on homes in Great Britain.

    Hi Rita. I think the shutters would look nice painted the same color as the soffits. Then I would paint the door white. It would be a classy look that keeps it bright.
