I think I should go with a red door and navy shutters but I'm not sure. I also want to get other opinion on what kind of flowers I should put in the front yard. It's a blank canvas!

Do hydrangeas do well in your climate? This house begs for blue/purple hydrangeas as a base planting en masse throughout the length of the house

Love your home and idea! Go for it. I also think iceberg roses would be fitting to your home and easy to maintain :)

A bright red door with black or deep navy shutters would work well with red flowers, like azaleas,roses,spider lilies(fall blooming), tulips, geraniums. Plants with red berries could add winter color. Accents of yellow mums or daffodils would fit a warm color scheme.
Really depends on your climate and the direction the house faces as to what plants you choose. I'm big on perennials that come back year after year. I'd flank the base of those stairs with Irises or bulbs with Alyssum and pansies for scent and annual color.
if you paint the door a more wine or burgundy color red, you could have more pink and purple shades of flowers. You can change the color of Hydrangeas from pink to blue by the pH of the fertilizer.find out what grows easiest and then choose the colors.

I would look at BMoore historical colors- and paint the house a deep rich color and the shutters can the same color or dark, and white trim, and a nice colored door. the house is missind detail...its just not about the color. Look at my web site: huntwoodsmanordesign.com and see a bold dark color on a house.
