Exterior paint guidance

We are getting our house painted next week and I need some guidance on what color to choose. The roof is brown (with almost orange undertones in the sun) and the shutters and front door are black. We are just repainting the siding so looking for something to coordinate with existing elements. The color is currently "Colonial Cream" by BM. I HATE the yellow/cream looking color and want something neutral. We also want something good for resale because we will be selling in the next few years.

Additionally the house is completely flat in the front with no real architectural elements. I'd like to avoid doing anything dark that will make the house look smaller.

I think I should steer clear of any greys with blue undertones because that will clash with the roof.

Any suggestions are welcome, thank you! :)
