Painting our red brick house,terracotta roof. Can't decide roof colour

Hi Guys! Would love some advice on roof colours. We are painting the brickwork on our house Dulux whitesunday island, window frames in vivid white and front door and balustrade in Night Sky but undecided on what colour to paint roof. We are choosing from Dulux Acratex so either Basalt (if we do roof basalt we would do the gutters and fascia in Charcoal), Monument, Charcoal or Mid Grey. I'm concerned basalt will throw off a lot of blue in sunlight? Has anyone painted terracotta tiles this colour? I love monument and Charcoal but worried the darkness will take over the house as we have quite a top heavy roof. Then we have mid grey - is this too light? Any advice on roof colours would be amazing as need to decide very soon!! Thanks, Jess :)
