Let her choose. That makes it HER decision
Good luck. Don't want to seem harsh, but there is no appeasing a rat. The flat light gray would be the best overall choice, like many others have pointed out already. Good on you for wanting to be proactive about it but it might all be for naught.
Its not the antenna pole that's the problem..its the person whining. Work with the person.
I never said to paint the little old lady...
How about a bit of lateral thinking? Don't paint it, just plant a variegated ivy or clematis montana at the foot of the pole and let it climb up and disguise the pole, better still make it runner beans that you plant, so that you get an edible crop!
If it worked for the RMS Queen Mary in WW II, "Battleship Grey" can't be all bad!
Not for the neighbors' benefit but so as not to draw attention to the antennas and tower I have used flat camo colors on both the tower and antennas. Blended in to the trees and the mountains behind them. You pretty much had to know where the tower was to see it if you were driving by the place
My preference is a luminescent paint.
Protective Aluminum Paint, maybe you want some function of the corrosion preventative properties?.
