need help choosing exterior paint colors

I’m looking to paint the exterior of my home. I am pretty sure I want the columns, fascia and soffits white (but which white?) and I like blues. I’m drawn to colors like SW Dutch Tile Blue or Granite Peak. I don’t want a red white and blue house though. I don’t want to paint the brick - too permanent and we like some contrast. We are building shutters for the small leftmost window. There are a million exterior doors on this house and the back is all hardy board, no brick. We have a new roof and gutters coming in weathered shadow and musket brown, respectively. I like the thought of white in the stucco, but I’m afraid of it being too bright and too modern for my traditional home. And I have no clue what to do with the window trim.
