Choosing Colors for Modern Farmhouse Exterior

last year

This is the house I'm painting

I want to go with a modern farmhouse exterior. This is my inspiration:

So, I'm thinking of painting the brick white - and I love the SW Iron Ore shown in this picture for the columns and trim, plus gutters and downspouts.

Question is what to paint the shutters, front door, and the siding on the gable.

I was thinking of gray/blue for the siding on the gable, but am worried it will look top-heavy with the white brick being lower.


Note: I just had the roof replaced on the house - don't have a pic, but the new roof is charcoal - definitely darker than the old roof shown in the pic
