what is a great color for a ranch style home? Maybe in the darker beige with a new brown shingle look roof, what color trim? What color front door? Maybe very dark browns?

Consider your surroundings. If your house is surrounded by trees, it would look natural painted in earth tones but out of place in pastels. In cold climates, bright colors might not work well, but in the sunbelt they might be appropriate. Generally, reserve bright colors for the trim, doors, and shutters.
