casement vs double hung vs mixture

We are about to start a remodel project and would love some input. The house is a bit of a mutt on design so planning to go towards a cottage-style house. With the egress restrictions, the windows on the upstairs, back of the house rooms must be casement, while the rest can be double hung.

My thoughts are to increase the grid number and have mixed emotions on the front beams/bay window issue. Any thoughts appreciated!

My question is can I do casement on rear of house and double hung on sides/front or will that look odd? Or do I just do casement all the way around? Just casement to meet egress on the two rear bedroom dormers? Please help!

Thank you!
