If it were me, I would go with brown gutters and downs, as they will tend to disappear. As far as the siding and trim, I would choose a couple of coordinating colors visible within your brick and perhaps your mortar.
Since you have white structural trim on windows and garage door, I would include that in my color choice decision and make sure it looked right and blended into the trim/siding color paint. (Example, A lighter and darker toffee color as a possibility for the now beige/green painted siding and trim)
Go to the paint stores/big box stores and pick up their brochures that have gorgeous pictures of how to re-do your exterior! You can achieve some dramatic results!
Changing your front door could add yet another layer of beauty. Good luck
Agree, to keep it simple, you can use paint manufacturers' brochures and a paint-by-numbers approach.
Cute house - if it were mine, I'd think about updating the beige by switching to a brownish taupe, losing all the green and going with white trim. Would definitely pull out either a burgundy or orange tone from the brick for the front door. Would not repeat the door color anywhere else so it stands out.
A darker taupe (same paint chip) could then be used for some of the trim, e.g. around the garage door, if it's left white. If you prefer, the darker taupe could also be used for the outer window trim.
Alternatively, if you painted the garage doors in the same taupe (or slightly darker than the house), you could again pick up the white trim.
It's all JMHO. Good Luck!
