Need small house paint color ideas

Hi everyone,

I'm a very long time lurker and it's now time for me to come out of the shadows. I've recently posted on the Smaller Homes Forum and they think I could use some ideas from you wonderfully creative people!

I don't want to do a duplicate post, so I've linked below to my original. To sum it up, we bought a small home about 2.5 years ago and have lived with it to get a feel for everything prior to doing any major updates. Well, never mind major updates, I haven't even done minor ones!

We want to paint the house this long holiday weekend and we can't decide on a paint color! The colors that are definitely off our list are greens, yellows and white. We are leaning towards blue or taupe, but I'm worried that blue will make our already tiny house look even smaller! It's only 700ish sq ft!

After we get the house painted, I'll probably be hanging out here for a while as I tackle other projects. I've got the front entry to liven up, update the kitchen and also the LR.

The good thing about this house is everything that needs to be done is solely cosmetic. Mechanicals and structure are top notch. Unfortunately, DH and I are great with mechanicals but the decorating genes went to our siblings! LOL
