You want to blend into the neighborhood homes. I like the white and wood trim. I'd purchase large carriage lights and perhaps urns near front door. Santaluz Home Carson Poetzl, Inc.

I disagree... why blend? "Sure -- come on over. Mine's the white one between the other two white ones." ??? I say make a statement. Some of the most beautiful row houses I've seen are those painted completely differently from each other. Think of San Francisco, Boston, Baltimore -- Google 'row houses' images and you'll see what I mean. The Spanish style and clay roof tiles would lend themselves beautifully to so many colors. You could play it safe with earth tones or be daring and go bright. Just make sure there are no community restrictions in place before you start.

panjetty: I think the color a house should blend into the neighborhood homes. The exterior paint on a home should not stick out like a sore thumb.
If a person lives in a San Francisco neighborhood where the houses are called painted ladies, you might paint your home purple and that purple would blend in for that particular neighborhood (photo below).
Some neighborhoods (gated communities) dictate to the home owner what color house is acceptable, so the gated community neighborhoods always remain beautiful & cohesive.
I do not disagree with you, but I always look around the neighborhood before I have my houses painted and I appreciate my neighbors who also look around the neighborhood and choose colors that blend in and do not "make a statement".

There are many shades of white. A warm white will make the wood look beautiful.
