Overhead Garage Doors match siding or trim?

We used to have carriage or swinging doors for the garage we replaced them with overhead doors (and remote openers YAY!!).

The new doors have window panels in them and a fake panel detail. Should we paint the doors to match the siding and paint around the window panels the trim color and detail the molded fake trim on the panels with trim color or paint the entire door the color of the siding or the trim?

The siding is the same color as the house a creme color. The trim is a deep green. The main doors of the house behind the storm doors are brownish red.

Yes or maybe no .... it's a personal choice ... whatever works and looks good to you. If you don't like your choices ... it's paint ..... you can change it if you want.:)
