need exterior paint suggestions please :)

TortoiseShellAugust 16, 2011

Hello All,

I need suggestions on what colors to paint my house. Can anybody volunteer their expert opinion?

It currently has white stucco, a medium green trim, and some red accents. The light fixtures and house numbers are the same color as the trim. I plan on removing the current shutters and replacing them with ones that don't extend past the bottom of the windows. Do you have any other suggestions that would make the house look better?

What style would you call this house?

Thank you so much for your help and time. I'm going to get it painted in September, so I have to figure things out soon. I posted current pictures on PhotoBucket, since I am not sure how to include them in the text of my forum message.

Would you prefer to stay light on the body of the house or dark?

Thanks buffy21798 for the suggestions!

I would prefer a light body on the house, since it small (1125 square feet). Maybe a neutral color would be good for the trim.
