Exterior Paint Colors with Light Gray Roof?

Good Questions

Q: I just moved into a new house, and while I love the eco-friendliness of a light colored roof, it's apparently a very uncommon color. I can't seem to find any inspiration photos to guide me in my exterior paint choices. Any suggestions or photos to help me? (Eventually the fence will be replaced and we'll create a grass-free edible landscape.) My style is modern organic, but my home's facade just reads featureless 1950's tract house. I'm attaching a screen shot from Google street view.
