Fresh, Modern Exterior Color Schemes?

Good Questions

Q: Hi there, we live in a stucco home in San Francisco built in 1938. We're looking to repaint the exterior and are looking for some fresh inspiration - a modern look that will last. It's currently a warm gray and dark khaki color and we're looking to lighten things up. Can you recommend any sites to peruse for home exterior ideas?

The design is pretty simple: It's an A-frame roof atop two garage doors. Any guidance you can provide would be much appreciated.
