1900's farmhouse paint colors????

So, my husband and I have been in our 1900's farmhouse for about a year and are just starting our renovation on the outside. We are going to install concrete siding, but cannot decide on a new color scheme. The house is in a historic district and surrounded by brick 4-squares and other victorian houses. If you have any recommendations on a 3-paint paint scheme, we would GREATLY appreciate it. Our house doesn't really fit into a true definition of farmhouse or victorian, so we're stumped and need advice. Thanks!

You should first check with the historical society in your area they may actually have limitations on what colors you can use if you are in a historic district. It would not be good to get all the paint on and then they tell you you have to change it. They could also give you advice on historically accurate colors.
