Good Questions: Help Me Pick House Colors!

081408_exthouse.jpgI planned months ago to paint my house, but I kept putting it off mainly because I couldn't decide on the colors! (And don't believe anyone who tells you that picking interior paint colors is harder.) Anyway, I think I've narrowed down my options, but I'm still not 100% sure on either...

Option 1 is to stick with the original colors that the house came in. Beige exterior, white trim, and this...umm...seafoam green(?) front door. To be honest, I'm not totally sold on the green, especially after multiple people--my neighbors included--have told me that it reminds them of toothpaste.

Option 2 is to go on the opposite end of the spectrum: Light slate-grey exterior with muted undertones of blue paired with white trim and a midnight blue door.

What do you think, dear readers? Option 1, 2, or none of the above?

P.S. The door hardware and house numbers are currently silver plated chrome.
