Man: 1, woman: too many to count

My husband won. Since I have made every other decision regarding the house I decided to let him have this one. Plus, if I went with any other choice it would be next spring before they could start on it...and I just don't think I can wait any longer.

We have decided to go with this shingle.
I only hope it looks more like thisand less like this.

Depending on what body color your house is, certain colors can complement or clash. That one picture you point out with the bright red brick most definitely clashes.

I have a bungalow color book somewhere and can't remember off the top of my head, but brown body almost always goes with brown roof, in contrasting intensities/tones. The brick on your home isn't really a pure red so you could probably get away with shingle color that might clash a bit more on a bright red brick. Looks like a blend of red, brown, & tan. That shingle isn't a pure brown, but seems to have a bit of a greyish blue sprinkled in there as a highlight. Depending on the trim color you go with, I think it'll look pretty nice. Maybe something in the muted blue-green spectrum?
