The shutters were brown prior owners painted black but I want something different. Any suggestions on what color to paint them?

I don't know, I kind of like the black. But since you want to change, RFF's suggestions are good. Something to work with the rood color.

Recently my sister who is a great designer had her yellow clapboard home repainted.. Corn chowder yellow, the shutters were done in a taupe/ putty color. The front door a lobster red...with two adirondack chairs painted lobster red as well. Set out on the lawn.It is beautiful..tasteful and has great curb appeal

If you go to Sherwin Williams website and choose the Visualizer you can repaint the shutters any color without buying a drop of paint. It's fun and simple. Try out all the colors suggested and see what you like best.

I rather like green shutters on a yellow house. But I think this house may have a bit of shutter overkill and needs something a bit lighter. The visualizer as suggested works well for something simple like shutters and go wild trying different colors. However, starting dark will make the image darker than that color probably will be in actuality.

Looks like the trim around the window is painted also...would start by painting that white...
