Default Help me pick a color...

Figure why not get a few opinions. Ranch house needs a new coat, what colors do you like? house and trim? Share pics if you have any. I'm pretty much a grey or brown guy but wife is thinking something not so vanilla.

I'd stick with a neutral/muted color so it just blends in with the brush like it is right now.

I wouldn't want to look around and have a house sticking out like a sore thumb

You could do like a friend of mine did and paint it mint green and have it stick out like a sore thumb

I’m with the “keep it earth tone” crowd, let it blend in to the surroundings

The white and black looks like a pain to keep looking nice if the ones in my hood are any indication. I'd go with a brown or gray. Trim can be whatever color you like to give it some pop.

My money is on the wife’s choice, something that’s not sooooo plain vanilla.
