Shutter color ideas

Title says it all. Bought over the summer and this will be my project next year. Was leaning toward black but was wondering if there was a more interesting color I was overlooking.

On another note, house came with Anderson windows and I have the inserts that give the windows a 'pane' look in a bunch of boxes in the basement. Does the house look better without or should I install?

That style house needs those deviders.
Try checking out some of the major paint companys websites. So have a place to down load a picture of your house and you can "paint" a box like a shutter and change the color.
There also going to have some sample house that you can do the same thing.

A darker shade of the roof shingles would be my choice to tie it all together

I would use white shutters. That way from the street if you decide to put white treatments in the windows you are safe.
