Love the blue as it is, but number 3 really stands out to me.

All are lovely but my favourite is number 3, which is odd - I'm not usually a fan of blue-green but with the orange door it really works. I would avoid adding colour around the windows - it clutters what is otherwise the beautiful architectural feature of a bay window.

I think it is important to understand that color schemes have to work with the architectural style of the house and the context the house is situated in. For example, Number 1 might look good in, say New Orleans, but dreary and dated in a foggy ocean area, or in a forest. Also, wood siding is much more forgiving than stucco. Having said that, I think all the color schemes are cute.
