Try a warm based red.

Pretty house! I love red doors. Recently painted mine Caliente by Benjamin Moore. Dinner party by BM is nice too. I also painted my shutters black but I think brown would look good too. Good luck!

A light tan colored shutter would also stand out against the brick:

Brown and red are a good combination. These shutters are a rich brown:

I think a red door would look great with your home, as suggested above a warm-based red would look best.

Hi LaToya. You have a beautiful home. It looks like your roof is a dark grey. I am uncertain what color your brick is though. Can you post a close up of it?

The first thing I would do is paint the garage doors a color similar to the brick so the eye would be drawn to the front door rather than the garage.
