Front door, trim, and shutter colors?

We want to paint our door, trim, and shutters to add some color. We also need to replace the colonial style pediment around the front door and the storm door, so I need color ideas for those as well. (I know the landscaping needs work; I'm getting help with that.)

The door used to be reddish burgundy, and it looked great. See photo #1. However, with the glass storm door and the western exposure, the door got so hot that it could burn one's hand. That's why we have the current pale color door (see photo #2) but it's BORING.

We really dislike the faded gold shutters. Hubby wants red shutters, but I prefer a dark green. And we are not sure what to do with the muddy brown trim, which is currently above the windows, under the eaves, around the garage, and on the railing by the front door.

Help, please?!
