What Color Should I Paint Our Front Door???

I am itching to paint my front door. When we bought the house, it was black - it still is black! My first thought in regard to painting the front door was RED! But then I've been looking online at all these other awesome colors. The trick is, of course, not only choosing a fun color that I  but ensuring that it matches our house. So here is a photo of our home as it is now.  
Pretty plain right? We also want to add some shutters at some point - they will likely be black or some other neutral. So far, I don't really like brightly color shutters. So what color door would go best with our house? I sort of want something that is a nontraditional front door color, but nothing too loud or over the top. Here are some inspirational front door colors that I am loving!
This is the color scheme that I initially envisioned.
I am loving the purple - I think it will look good on our house, too!

I tried to choose inspiration doors that were on homes similar to mine, i.e. in color, with siding. I am loving the red as shown with the black shutters like I want, but I am also really feeling that deep purple! What shutter and door combination colors do you think will look best?

P.S. what color is our house?!?! I swear it's a brownish color...but my husband and mother keep telling me it's greenish!!!

P.SS. Check out the color that I decided to go with!
