Is it a bad idea to have some windows with muntins and some without?

We have have a timber frame home built in 1987 that was built with Anderson 400 casement windows with no muntins.

Timber Frame homes seem to lean contemporary or more traditional (like a farmhouse) depending on various factors. I personally prefer the traditional/farmhouse look and would like to move the house further in that direction.

We are planning a kitchen renovation - I've included pictures of the current kitchen and the back of the house.

I really prefer windows with muntins and would love to install those in the updated kitchen instead of windows without muntins. I also included a rendering of the vision I have.

Is it a bad idea to have some windows with muntins like this, while the rest of the house has no muntins? Edited to add: the mix in styles would only be visible from the back of the house - no change to the front.
