Picking Paint Colors

Which looks better? Both paint schemes include a dark red color for the windows and a dark greenish-blue for the storefront and roofline.

The paint scheme on the left is a light blue for the brick, white trim and light gray around the windows. I originally had planned on white around the windows, but after applying it, thought it looked funny with the red windows. I put the light gray on to make it look more like stone.

The scheme on the right is a kiwi green color for the brick, with light gray trim on the side and around the window. Above the green scheme, I painted the trim white to see what it would look like with a white trim. The green is also a little more bluish in color by the white trim because I reused a paint brush with blue on it :)
