DIY // Paint. The Choice That Never Ends

We're taking a little break from the kitchen redo.  We still have the cabinets to paint and all the trim to do, but we're tuckered out.  So we're moving on to something that still allows me to be a slug on the couch.  That's right, we're back to talking paint.

We've finally decided on a paint color and hopefully I don't have any color-remorse like I did for the interior paint...(although I am totally digging the taupe color, so maybe it wasn't so bad after all!  We're going with Behr (because that's what we have available in this rural community) and we've chosen Silver Hill for the body of the house.  We tested it outside in the natural light and it's the perfect blue/gray color we were looking for.  We've also chosen Behr's Flaming Torch for the door, which will give us that pop of color we were wanting.

We're still trying to figure out the complementary colors.  I did track down this on Behr's website which seems promising, but where would we use the colors?  Trim, porch, shutters...?

Or should we go with one darker hue for an accent, like black or these amazing charcoal colors from Behr?

I really struggle with choosing colors - one color is easy, but combinations...that's a tough one. So, feel free to share your suggestions and since I'm a visual type of person, pictures are ALWAYS encouraged!
