Help choose exterior paint colors

I have Timberline Mission Brown shingles on a house that has a lot of roof. I'm having a hard time choosing a color for the cedar siding and would like to bring in a third trim color. Would love some help! I'm kind of surprised that the shingle companies don't partner with paint companies to help out us color senseless homeowners!

A solid color stain, the stain could have more of a reddish tint so as to contrast with all the brown.

To add dimention, you could paint the garage doors and front door a rich, soft, olive green.

Thank you both! The name of the shingles make them sound like they are simply brown, but they have a bit of mauve in them along with gray tones. Are we okay to paint a red cedar color with the mauve?

Paint it a lighter gray - matches the roof shingles. Paint the trims pure white.

HI -- Love this style of house . This style of house is not meant to have a separate trim color but there can always be a first time ,right ? I think a creamy greyed tan would be nice with a blackish brown or a white trim . I think if you painted the whole house a warm medium grey or you could add a cream/white for a trim or a charcoal /dark brown for trim . The front door needs to be a pretty accent color . But get advice from your paint store as to what you should use paint or stain or solid .
