Help with porch railing color on front elevation of yellow brick house

last year

I am remodeling the front elevation of my 50 year old yellow brick raised ranch. My front porch is concrete and due to the porous nature of concrete we experienced significant leaking into the basement below. We have replaced the concrete pad and plan to put a black metal roof over the porch to protect the porch and basement in the future. My dilemma is what color(s) should I use for the new railing on the porch and down the stairs. Black, white, or a mix. My contractor has given me a Trex railing book. So many options. I like the the island mist cocktail rail with black rail and white posts for porch. I thought the gray cocktail rail might pull in some of the colors from the stone column foundation and the grey concrete but not sure if that will be too busy color wise. Open to your suggestions. All black, all white, combination, other. The pictures below are current and artist rendering of future. Thanks.
