Took down shutters and can't decide which color to paint them. Siding is off white. Need opinions!

There are numerous options based on the existing roof, siding, and brick colors. Traditional cinnamon/ brick red, dark taupey gray/ griege, eggplant, moss green, or caramel. Hard to say since everyone's monitors show differently.

I like the idea of black too (SW tricorn). Its a fairly traditional house, so maybe looking at traditional color schemes from different paint brands. Should be pretty easy to find a scheme that worls with your bricks. Glidden just put out a new one with great combos. Valspar, Sherwin Wiliams, Ben Moore and Behr all have good suggestions.

Online paint tools also help somewhat. They aren't perfect but they usually help eliminate colors. And when in doubt take a pic or a sample brick and siding piece to a paint store for advice. They can guide you
