Wall colour advise needed .. help!!

Hi everyone, so excited I have come across this platform, I love looking at what everyone has done to there homes it gives me so much inspiration..  having said that, we (my husband and i) are currently renovating our home in a remote QLD town in order to rent it out. It was due for a new roof and a good paint. So we have replaced the roof with colourbond classic cream, we are replacing the gutters with classic cream also. But we are really struggling to find a house colour to match/compliment the  classic cream roof. And i have had no luck googling what ptber people have done. We have started to paint the soffit with antique white USA(we have painted the inside of the house in this and love it) but it's too stark for the house itself. Our fence is classic cream with pale eucalyptus capping and we don't want anything to clash which is providing be hard. My brother is a builder and suggested colourbond Dune and to paint the green trimming on the house the same as the soffit.. any suggestions would be highly appreciated, we are at the point we just colour match what it is currently and give that fresh  coat. xx thank you so so much

I like it @DesFitzgerald. I don't think it's too bright. 

 

Antique white USA looks like it's more of a grey white, is that right?

Thanks so much, I would say it's a tad creamy white like an ivory than grey.
