Home Exterior Color Suggestions

We are trying to freshen up the outside of our house by changing up some of the colors and we could use some suggestions. Our siding is clay colored and our shutters and door are green. We would like to change our shutters to black, paint our front door, porch railing and posts. Anyone have any suggestions on a color for the railing and posts that will help them stand out (they are currently the same color as the siding) and feel more inviting. We are also toying with the idea of completely removing the railings and changing out the posts with 8inch square ones. Does anyone think this would look right on our style of house if we did this? I've attached a photo of the front of the house as it looks now. Please let me know what you think.

Can any of the moderators tell me why this thread was moved to the INterior Decorating Thread when my question is regarding the EXterior Color and front Porch? Thanks.

A soft white (not extra white!) will probably give you the effect you are looking for - as boring as it sounds
