House lacks color. Go with lime green.

Agreed - overall the house needs color - I don't care much for a white house. In general I like to see three colors on a house - the body color, trim color (facer boards), and accent color (front door and shutters). And you have to take the roof color into consideration.

That said, I am a lousy visualizer of colors. I go to the paint stores and look for the broshures that recommend options of the three colors that go together as I mentioned above and go with that.

My house was white - went to the paint store - saw what we liked in the broshure - and painted accordingly. Now a brown body color, medium tan trim, with deep red shutters and front door. We think it looks great and a HUGE improvement over the previous white.

Do you have a pic of your you can share?

Also, my house has vinyl sidings. Ok to paint those? How much do you think it'll cost?

The color you paint exterior shutters depends on if you want them to be the focus of your house, or blend in. Using a dark color on a white house will highlight the shutters.
