Need help choosing vinyl siding

I need new siding on my ranch style house, am getting vinyl siding. I'm thinking of wrapping the entire front (including brick entryway) in white board and batten siding and adding vinyl shutters. I'm also open to gray siding with white trim. I like the farmhouse or cottage look. I'm not sure where to start, any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Please give this some serious thought before you have your house resided with vinyl: it's a petroleum product meaning if your house starts on fire, the fire is going to burn much hotter with more damage as the vinyl keeps the heat in more than other types of siding. The smoke is much, much more toxic than regular smoke as well. The reason I know this is because my husband has been a firefighter for 30 years, and absolutely refuses to even consider going with vinyl siding for those reasons.
