3rd Paint color for Window Sash

We have redone our purchased lady/home in Texas. I have done the fretwork myself and we are just about complete. Our home was painted in the green before our purchase.

We are wanting to add a 3rd color for window sash's on our home. We want a dark red, burgandy, something for the time period of 1900. Our concern is taking away from the stained glass with a darker color?

Any advise on a 3rd color we could use or no 3rd color at all? We want the windows to pop out more but we dont want to take away from the stained glass? Please any advice would be great.

Pop the windows with a 3rd color?

If so, what color would you recommend?
