Originally I had more complicated plans for color -- trim on this, body color on that, a bit of foundation color over here... but I heeded wise counsel to keep it simple, sweetie and not draw attraction to less-than-beautiful architectural "features" with lots of color changes.
We also debated the color of the exterior window shutters a good bit but ended up using the foundation color (we bought paintable shutters) as a way to tie in the color on the bricks. I think it looks nice and is a great improvement!
