I love the color, what about some chocolate colored shutters too offset the color a little. If you wanted too change the color I would only go two shades darker no more.

I was looking at BM Briarwood and BM Pashmina for the body and BM Sail Cloth for the trim.

Going in a completely different direction, what about a classic California bungalow palette in the warm tan family? Love this combo with the blue/green door and windows. The Ideabook below might provide some inspiration.

If you want to repaint the house to freshen it up, I would stay pretty much with the color you have. What I would do is outline the windows and do some landscaping.

Your house is a winner.
