Need advice on brick and trim color for first house!

My girlfriend and I are building our first home and need some advice on the brick selection and trim color. We have the brick narrowed down to either ACME's Torrington or Hampton Mill, but we have no clue what to do for the shutters and trim color. We were thinking of black shutters and a dark gray trim, but we're not sure if that will look good. The builder will allow one color for all of the trim and garage doors, and one color for the shutters. For additional money we could add in another color for the trim. I have attached pictures of what the house will look like in 3D and both brick types. Any advice would me much appreciated.

    The most beautiful brick ever made is "Old Chicago" but there is usually a long waiting time to get it. It is timeless! It is colorful and subtle at the same time. Be sure and take a look at it. Almost any color trim is pretty with it...from the gold to terra cotta to black or white!

    Light taupe brick with either white or taupe trim. Two shades of the taupe on the upper peak of the garage. Don't do too much contrast. It will cheapen that beautiful house. Congratulations on your first lovely home. I love it.

    I like the Torrington brick. for the shutters I would go with a medium gray. for the trim I think a lighter gray.

    Right selection of bricks with trim colour is the first and primary need of your new home building. A home builder knows the right selection and it’s wise to take the help of a good builder. Though “Actionconstructionco” builders are situated in Anderson area but they can give best tips.
