Want to paint My House

Option 2. Here I would use one of the darker grays as the main house color and use the remaining colors as accents for the garage door, the balcony columns and the ribbing detail.

All colors from Glidden. Clockwise from top left: Dove White GLC37, Deep Garnet GLR29, Pebble Grey GLN50 and Granite Grey GLN59

Keep in mind that you can use color as a tool to either enhance or hide architectural details. If you want something to stand out, paint it a contrasting hue from whatever surrounds it. Conversely, paint any features of your house that you want to hide or deemphasize the same hue as whatever is surrounding them. They will blend right in.
