Q: I'm stumped on exterior paint ideas. We are finally able to afford some home upgrades including putting on a new roof and it's time to repaint the house. We are planning on getting a metal roof and there are tons of color options. I'm hoping ultimately to redo the porch as well.

I'm thinking of putting in new posts and railing in a natural medium wood but that will probably be later. The sky is the limit on color combinations but we do have to think about the red brick accents. Our home is small on a large lot with few trees. I want something universally appealing so if we ever decide to move color won't deter potential buyers. My current favorite color scheme is a soft gray body with white trim and yellow accents (yellow front door?) but I change my mind all the time. Any suggestions or inspiration photos would be welcomed!
