New color for shutters on front of house

We are purchasing this house, and I am not a fan of the rust color of the current shutters. I like the red door, but with the red brick and the lighter shutters, I think it looks a little off. Any suggestions on a good color to go with the brick and the red door?

Charcoal would be super. Navy is another fun choice - very classic if you pick a really good dark one - and there are some terrific nautical inspired outdoor light fixtures - would be crisp.

For a light colored house comes with a dark shade of shutters. Shades of blue or black would be ok or try neutral black for the shutters.

I love darker colors, so I think the charcoal and the neutral black might be right up my alley. Thank you so much.

Charcoal will go great with the red door and brick. It will make the red door "pop!"
