Need Exterior Colors For Queen Anne w/Green Roof

I own a Queen Anne that I am remodeling, then reselling. The problem is that i am stuck with a Hunter Green roof that is almost new. Does anyone have any suggestions about the two colors of exterior paits that I should choose?:confused:

That will be difficult as Queen Ann houses were originally roofed with slate with most slate roofs being different varieties of grey. Any decent size library will have an extensive collection of books dealing with houses of that era and what colors to paint them. Look for books with titles like "Painted Ladies" etc. Look at some of the color schemes in these books and select something that will match the green roof.
