Fence color for white house?

last month

The photo below is of the view from our kitchen window into the backyard. A few years ago a well meaning family member painted the back fence the color of the Golden Gate Bridge. :-(

The main house (a simple rectangular 50 yr old ranch) is white with a small amount of black trim (on the front door, shutters, and wrought iron gate).

I can't stand looking at the red fence. What color should it be? Black? For some reason I feel like black might be too harsh??? If you have an opinion and even a brand of paint and specific paint color to recommend, I would be thrilled to hear it.

At some point in the future the front of the house will be updated and painted likely all white.

Thanks for your time!
