What color for garage door? Match trim or windows?

We are painting our house in a three-color scheme, and trying to decide what color to paint our garage door. It's a steel door that was new when the house was last painted 15 years ago, so is still factory white. It is retrofitted into an old garage so has a funky dual trim around it. Garage is set back from the street, but still quite visible from the street. We'll have off-white trim, gray-green window sashes, and a gold/ochre body color. We know we don't want to match the body color.

Would you keep it white (match the trim) or use the accent color (match the window sashes)? The doors are stained wood so no paint to match there. I don't think we have the option to do a color outside of the three without additional cost, so want to stick to this palette.

Keep it white (BM White Dove):

Lighter window sash option (BM Cape May Cobblestone):

Darker window sash option (BM Sage Mountain):

Thanks! (The body will of course all be the same color--just funky visualization artifacts from where there was already primer when I took this photo. The house is stucco and the garage has wood siding.)
