White house with white trim— different shades?

Sarah R
last month

Hi all,

We need to select our exterior paint colors for our siding and trim. We are doing painted white siding (likely SW alabaster but still deciding) and likely want to do white trim as well. I love the idea of the trim popping but am not sold on painting it a completely different color— our house will have navy (SW naval) shutters (including full length shutters on both pairs of French doors), red brick water table and porch, haint blue front porch ceiling, and large hanging yoke gas lantern (details just to provide vision of what we are going for). Two suggestions I have heard are 1) paint the siding in flat paint and the trim in semigloss of the same color; 2) paint the trim in a brighter white than siding. It’s also been suggested that we paint the gables with the shingles a different color (like blue), although not sure that would look good. Would love input! I included picture of house thus far and the drawings since picture is blocked some. Thanks!
