What trim color with a dark brown exterior?

We are in the midst of a minor facelift to the front of our home. The stone in the photos is new, as are the columns. The trim pieces above the porch on the gable are repairs. Our dilemma - the main body and all the trim on the house are currently dark brown. We are not up for changing the trim color or main color on the entire house until the next paint job (4 or 5 years?). What color(s) should the columns and the panels above the stoop be? Of note - there is red brick exposed on the foundation and the front door is currently Ben Moore Cottage Red - which could be changed.
Thank you for reporting this. Undo

Since you are not painting the house or the trim, I think I would continue on with the same brown as the house or pick one of the colors in the stone;)
