Good Questions: Exterior Paint Color for Stucco?

I would love to get some advice from Apartment Therapy readers about what color to paint my 1907 stucco house. Unfortunately, the trim was capped with black siding by the previous owners and is in too good condition to replace right now. So I am looking for a color to coordinate with black trim and white fascia. On the front facade, we have natural cedar shingles on the second floor and the front storm door is oil rubbed mahogany. The porch is currently grey, but also needs to be painted. The roof is in shades of brown. The other three sides of the house are just big expanses of stucco interrupted only by the black-trimmed windows. The street consists mostly of 1880s Victorians; we are wedged between two of them. Many thanks! Ann
