Trying to make a "modern farmhouse" timeless...

Hello! We are building a new home and really love the modern farmhouse style but want to make some choices that differentiate our house from the great many other lovely but increasingly common houses with white exterior/black window/vertical siding accents in our area. I'd love a take on two ideas:

1. Changing the board and batten accents on the gables and garage to shingle

2. Using a softer white paint and a Marvin clad window in pebble gray/bronze/clay color rather than black; copper gooseneck light and cupola accents to go with (see second attached photo)

Would love feedback. Thank you!
