Window centering

Having an octagon window installed and trying to decide what would look better--centering it with the wall or centering it between the trim board and the inside corner (wall is 3'-6" wide with outside corner on left with 4" trim board and inside corner on right with no trim. I'm leaning towards the latter because even though the window wouldn't be centered with the wall, or would give the illusion that it is because of the trim board. And I believe the opposite would be true (would look off center if centered on wall)

I agree but how does the placement work on the inside?

Yes, it works on the inside as well because the side with the trim board is an outside corner and there is a stud wall there, which means it will be centered from the inside as well

Now just need to figure out how high to mount it.

I decided to space it 7.5" from the fascia board, which gives me space for a half course of siding (siding is dual 4") and a 3.5" trim board. Should look pretty good.
