Good Questions: What Color Should I Paint My House?

Vanessa writes: I am desperately in need of some help. My husband and I are having our french-country stucco home painted this summer. I have no idea what color to choose. Could you post this so that I could get some feedback from all the apartment therapists. The home is currently white with all wrong dark gray shutters...

This summer we are painting the exterior of the home, adding new shutters and window trim and working a little on the landscaping. I would really like to bring the old painted front door back to it's natural wood look. Please give me some color suggestions for the house and the shutters. I did a little work in photoshop on a current photo of the home and I kinda like this green shade. However, this is such a big investment it's keeping me up at night. Please help me!!

Please share your feedback and suggestions with Vanessa in the comments below...thanks!
