What Color Should We Paint Our Front Door and Shutters?

Good Questions

Q: Currently, we have a lot of white trim around the exterior of our house, as well as some forest green accents.  The colors on the brick consist of deep reds with purple and mustard yellow. We would like to remove all traces of the hideous green and add a new color to the front door and shutters, but we have no idea which color(s) would work best with our home. We were thinking maybe purple or pale (baby) blue, but are open to suggestions!
