It depends on the shade.  There is one section of Alsace, France that they went nuts with house colors.  They were all bright or deep shades.  Blue, Green, Yellow, etc. 
One must consider how the house will look over time, i.e.,  blue tends to fade quickly and can become ugly.

You are right, Abe.  We have a blue gray color which holds up well and looks good too.

Color of your house should make you smile when you drive up the drive,  I am partial the color called Butter cookie. with white trim.  It is old fashioned and welcoming.  Other than that, for the inside, sage green and white baseboards and window trim.  It is clean look.  I love clean.  Love you too Alice and DK

It would depend on the style, and location. The picture Shelage posted, lavender looks good a a large home. The same color on a small house would not. The same goes for location. A home in the country could be lavender , in the city I would say no. I like homes in the country to be earth shades.
In 1970 I had a friend who got land cheap, two miles west of the airport. He built a large home on the property. Half of the inside was done, where he and his family lived, and the other half of the inside was a work in progress. He got some bright yellow pant free, and used this on the outside. It was a big mistake. The airlines used his bright yellow spot as a marker to make their turn to where ever they were going...about 1,700 feet above his home. That was when he learned why the land was so cheap.
