Ideas for a rustic feel after siding update?

We have to replace the 43-year-old cedar siding on our lake home due to poor condition. We will be updating with the 7" lap siding from Ascend in the Deep Moss green color and some Alside Auburn Weathered shakes on the garage and gables. We will be keeping the roof and dark brown garage doors and trim. As this is on a lake, we hope to maintain the rustic vibe. Any other suggestions of architectural features or things we could change or add to maintain the rustic charm? Maybe corbels? I wish we could just replace the cedar, but it is too expensive and not practical for us.
