Painting window trim but which is better, to go lighter or darker?

It's a grey/blue sea fog exterior colour but is there a rule of thumb to painting the trim around windows? I know to go a lighter or darker shade but as it's cut into the hillside I don't want it sticking out in an obvious way. Which is better to give the impression of larger windows?

Also painting a porch style pitched roof above front door can that be another but complimenting colour to door and walls?
