Need help with roof color...!

I would so appreciate any thoughts on the best roof color for our house. We're looking at Timberline high definition shingles. The house color is a light taupe and the shutters are supposed to be black (they look gray in photos but will be painted black soon.) Can anyone suggest a shingle color? We're thinking maybe Charcoal or Pewter but open to your suggestions.... thanks!

A dark colored roof always gives a house weight and a sense of solidity. A light colored roof makes a house tend to "float" off the ground. The roof color you have now is good but it would be better if it blended with the brick. It would make the brick feel more important to the house. The best color for you would be Tamko Rustic Slate, Certainteed Heather Blend or GAF Heather Blend- or similar in another brand since they all basically have the same colors.
