Ranch House Window Trim Suggestions?

We are remodeling a 50's ranch house. The windows and doors all have the trim I have shown in the photos and a simple 3/4 round baseboard.

I would like to make the trim a little more interesting without overdoing it. I was thinking of 3 1/4" square trim around with a stool and apron.

Does anybody have any suggestions? It seems that everybody agrees that ranch house trim leaves a lot to be desired, and that one must stay simple to update it, but I haven't run across any sites that actually make some suggestions yet.

Thanks.

You can always add trim around the flate stock to add interest.

Thanks for the suggestion. I hadn't seen that done before. I guess I was thinking of completely replacing the clam shell trim.
