garage paint colors (X-post from Paint)

Hello all,

We're deciding on paint colors for our house and wanted to get opinions on how to handle the garage. We have a 1914 craftsman and are proposing to go with a blue-gray scheme with these colors:

Body: Benjamin Moore November Skies (2128-50)
Trim: Benjamin Moore Cotton Tail (2155-70)
Window sashes & front door: Benjamin Moore Evening Dove (2128-30)

We're considering what to do with the garage, whether the garage door should be the same as the front door or if we should just go with the body color. My husband is concerned that for our garage, which is basically all door with almost no "body" to it, going with the darker color would make it look like a black hole sitting at the end of the driveway. I'm not so sure. Does anyone else have any thoughts?

I'd do it the body color. Also check the home decorating forum--they decorate (and give paint advice) outside too!

It's going to look great!
