colour scheme for my Victorian Queen Anne

I would love to have suggestions for what might work, not fond of the yellow and green.
Would like something along the lines of grey to dark grey, but open to suggestions.

If you go with greys, you could use trim colors in the plum family, along with some greens.

check out this article from This Old House: http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/photos/0,,20711677,00.html

I'm pretty sure Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams have sections on period color combinations.

I would borrow the red from the houses on either side of your house for your main accent to replace the green. You certainly have enough detail to add secondary accents...

Gray would work very well as the body color between the two red houses...

Are you willing to "think outside the box" and be a little more adventuresome. What about this? The second picture is a rough mock up to give you an idea of how it could look.
