    Gorgeous house. I love the color of the eves. What about a lighter shade of that?
    The “tan/beige“ of your grass and tree trunks, or a subtle orang/rust?

    I think a lighter gray would look nice!

    A white or cream color would look nice, & it would stand out more than a darker color.

    I think I would like the white to make a nice contrast to the grey.

    Since the home has a feel of a tutor leaning towards a winter lodge I really think that you answered your own question when you said it had grey undertones. I would go with a medium to deep grey not black at all just deep enough to look weathered like cedar gets ashy grey with lights a low shades so it looks natural like the surroundings. The house in its current color and roof color tends to really blend with nature and so a grey would be great in my opinion it just needs to be the right shade. You may have to make it look weathered yourself by "distressing " yourself with different shades of grey. It's a beautiful home so I would really just follow my heart because you can't go wrong if everytime you come home you smile. Any color you choose will be the right color for you.

      Thank you, i just came in from putting up a couple of sample colors. I am really out of my element with dark colors. I have always had lighter colors on my homes. Thanks so much!
