Our house is due for a new paint job and we are SOO excited to get rid of the ugly mauve with green trim that my dad chose YEARS ago!! This is our house (it doesn't get a lot of sunlight in the front, so I apologize for the shadows). We will have white vinyl windows all around by the end of the year.
 

This is a close up of the brick on the front of the house:
 
 
These are the colors I was planning on, but I'm unure how they'll look with the brick color. I have also considered restaining the brick to get a true brick red color. I want the green for the house, brown for the shutters and front door, and a nice white for the trim.
 

What do you think?? What other ideas do you have?

 Will you be painting or replacing the garage door?

With the Brick, the roof and the white windows I would be worried the green is to light. IMHO. What color for the front door?
