Help needed in selecting a color

Hey everyone!

I just got my roof done and was hoping to get some input with regards to selecting a color to paint the house. I've seen soo many colors lately I and honestly I don't have a clue... I've attached a picture of the house and roof. I tried a different shade with the gutters but I'm not too sure it would look good... I would appreciate all of your help.
Thank you so much

Most any earth tone colors would look good. I don't know much about it but many paint stores have software that can take the picture of your house and change the colors to give you an idea of how it will look.

I'm pretty boring, I lean toward tan or grey most of the time. Grey is my first choice but I don't use it if there's any kind of brown in the trim, gutters or roof colors.

The good news is that any color you paint it will be an improvement over the pink. (I'm just prejudiced against pink, it's not really THAT bad.)

If I was going for a neutral I'd choose something in the white/cream spectrum. Your gray brick is a very nice neutral, it can go with lots of shades in any color group from dark red to olive green to pineapple yellow. Choose your favorite color, then go find color cards you love in several shades of that color and have the paint store try them in their software.

IMO the yellow looks worse than the pink

I like the bottom pic
