Do you know what color paint was used on the shutters and the door?

Love the color combination of this house and the clean landscaping. One thing I would have done differently is left of the shutters and used flower boxes under the windows to bring out the blue accent color. So many people use shutters when it is inappropriate to do so, or the wrong size. Sorry, just one of my pet peeves.

Kerrie L. Kelly added this to How To Get Your Exterior Paint Color Right
Regardless of the home's era, a red door always says "Welcome." This classic exterior sets off its entry by maintaining a white body and complementary shutters.
The wood shingle roof, brick chimney, clapboard siding and entry portico all contribute to this home's colonial revival charm, while its gambrel profile delineates it as a Dutch colonial revival.

I like the whispy tree/busy in front of the left front window. Maybe something like that in front of the bathroom window at north? I hate: fake, useless mock shutters.
