Help with garage and wood/trim portion of brick house

Going crazy trying to coordinate colors of the garage door with the natural look of our yard while also selecting new color for the wood and trim of our two story home. Pictures attached. All suggestions greatly appreciated.

Hello,
Thank you for your question, and the photos of your lovely home!

If I understand your questions correctly, you're looking for a garage door color a color for the trim on the home. And, you no longer have the shutters.

I like the thought of incorporating a neutral green/gray or green/beige into your color scheme, for the garage, and perhaps the front door (if you're considering painting it.) You could also add other accents of the color in outside decor.

Here are a few greens or gray/greens that could work well with the natural surroundings, and the brick on your home:

Benjamin Moore Saybrook Sage HC-114 http://www.myperfectcolor.com/en/color/5942_Benjamin-Moore-HC-114-Saybrook-Sage

Benjamin Moore Nantucket Gray HC-111 http://www.myperfectcolor.com/en/color/102869_Benjamin-Moore-HC-111-Nantucket-Gray

Benjamin Moore October Mist 1495 http://www.myperfectcolor.com/en/color/4928_Benjamin-Moore-1495-October-Mist

For the trim, I would consider a light paint color, but wouldn't necessarily need to be white. Once you sample and choose your accent/garage color, then you would want to sample the trim colors you're considering.

Here are a few ideas of light but rich trim color ideas:

I hope these suggestions are helpful.

Thank you Diana. I may not have mentioned we also want to repaint the wood siding and shutters above the garage. The shutters on the BACK wall are still in place. It is the front of house shutters that where destroyed during a severe storm. Thanks for your expert and most kind assistance.

Louis
