Feedback on new construction exterior colors

last year

Soon it’ll be time to order roofing, windows, and exterior doors for our new build so I’m looking to get all the colors locked down now. Would love to tap into the collective expertise here on Houzz.

Photo shows my best shot so far. Elevation is overlaid on the actual lot. We’re in the PNW and the house will face west. Lot is wooded and view is to the rear (overlooks forested bank dropping to stream below).

Would love to hear suggestions for improvement. All colors shown here are Sherwin Williams:

Body 7061 Night Owl
Trim 9166 Drift of Mist
Accent 6072 Versatile Gray (placeholder — I’d like to go with stained wood here)
Door 7624 Slate Tile

I used 7660 Earl Grey for the roof, but I don’t know…would darker look better (more contrast?)?

Also, what color of windows would you use? I’ve been leaning towards black but am totally open to suggestions here.
