Should main house and guest house siding colors match?

8 years ago
Our house is sided with Hardieplank Light Mist with white trim. We are having a small guest house built about 20' from the main house. I'm struggling to decide which color to use to side the new structure. Should I use the Light Mist to match the current structure or could I venture into either White or Iron Gray with white trim? How important is continuity as the structures will be located so close to one another?

I should add that we will also be adding a detached garage on the other side of the house within the next year and I would like it's siding to match the guest house.

Usually fairly decisive in my decorating decisions but struggling with this one! Thanks so much for any input.
