A Musket Brown or Federal Brown would bring the stone color in nicely. There is also a soft, slate blue color (I can't think of the name right now) that would look nice as well.

I think if you chose a shade of green, but not the dark hunter green, that would look really nice. I would paint the front door the same color as the shutters. I would re-paint the porch with the white. it looks really nice. It looks like a great house.

Agreed on the white porch. OP, what about a nice soft sage green on the shutters/door?

You have a lovely house. Consider making the investment of right sized shutters with all the hardware to really set it off!

At sherwinwilliams.com, they have a visualization site. You download a photo of your house, mask off different areas, and make the areas any color you want. It's super easy and fun.
