What color paint for outside?

We are trying to choose a color to paint our house. We just framed the windows and were thinking of painting the frames white and the front column white. Any suggestions for the house color?

A picture of the house might help.

Need a picture. Depending on the style and surroundings of your house, medium to dark gray with white trim can be really pretty, with a pop of color on the front door (i.e., yellow, pumpkin, red). Door color depends on shade of gray. There are also some really pretty greens (not your crayon greens) that look good. Valspar has one called Willow Tree that would look good with brown trim and a pumpkin color door (brown with gray undertones). Of course this all depends an the style of your house, the amount of trim, etc. Houzz has thousands of house paint ideas that you can view to help you choose.

A 'timeless look' on midcentury houses is grey-white-black(or chocolate) with some wood and/or orange. Greige-white-teal is lovely too.

Loads of great ideas in earlier dilemma's, I see this type of question come by very often: http://www.houzz.com/discussions/query/%22exterior-color%22/topic=design-dilemma

I love the greige-white-teal, where do you think I could put the teal?

On the door and maybe the moving parts of the window frames.
