need suggestions for siding & window styles...

I have never uploaded an image, hopefully this will work! The pic should be of our front elevation. I am looking for advice regarding siding (planks vs shakes, brand, color). I am leaning toward a shade of gray or blue-gray with white trim, but am so unsure! I am also interested in doing something a little more interesting with the windows - rather than all those single double-hungs on the first floor, I was thinking of 1 triple on each side of the front door. And maybe using wide trim instead of shutters. I am open to any and all suggestions! We break ground in 2 weeks. Thanks so much! (PS... if you can point me to pictures for inspiration, that would be great!)
