Exterior paint for 1738 farmhouse

My house was built in 1738 on an Island. Two years ago we had a "true red" metal roof installed. I planned on painting the wood siding, windows, and trim all white. Since light colors show every flaw, I now would like to use something more mysterious and unusual. I have been considering black but am afraid with the red it would be too stark. I have seen a couple of historic black homes in the past and loved them.
Please send any suggestions for a monotone palette that you feel would compliment the roof.
