Exterior facelift time... need some advice.

My wife and I purchased our first home and spent the first year getting everything on the inside the way we like it.

This spring and summer, I have been charged with the responsibility of cleaning up our front yard and giving this tired exterior a shot of fresh paint and colour.

At the moment, I am looking at very dark blues with a creme colour for the trim and wood siding. I've also looked at turquoise greens that seem to be really popular around this neck of the woods (Victoria, BC) but I am concerned with the amount of wood siding matched with the glass stucco, its going to look like a house from the 70's. Too much contrast?

Could you guys give me some of your ideas with what you would do to give the house a facelift with paint? I am taking care of the landscaping in the spring. All of those overgrown cedars will be gone!

These are photos of when we saw it for sale:
