Front door for shingle style 1917 lakefront- pics

What style door will complement the sliders (all glass) and the casements (prairie style divided lights). The front door under this covered porch will exit onto a deck overlooking a lake so we want lots of glass in the door. Should it be wood or same green as the other trim? 3/4 glass on top with 1/4 wood panel at bottom. Want an Arts & Crafts look but lots of glass, too. This is in New England. The new windows/sliders are Eagle Windows.

What about these?

Plenty of choices regarding lights. You could paint or stain.
