Hi: Your pick to have CONCEPT B detailed out surprised me, but was clever. Hopefully the other designers cover some other possibilities also. If dormers in front are strongly desired, the three doghouse-type in CONCEPT B1 are the way 99% of two story colonials do it. Being so symmetrical and repetitive, it does make the house even more formal than the existing front. The Nantucket-style dormer depicted in CONCEPT B2 presents a little less formal image, but it is not a traditional dormer type for a two story colonial. It is typically used in a 1 1/2 story more informal house. If CONCEPT B2 is the type layout with which you decide to go, the house might look even better with all the existing shutters removed (especially if they are not original). But, I hope you truly consider saving some money and maintaining the great classic look of your almost 100 year old house by just putting a big dormer in the back. Layouts associated with a just rear shed dormer are much more efficient because they do not waste space on unnecessarily long (and space stealing) hallways. Any way you go, I will happily provide any design or engineering advice at no cost if my concepts seem to be close in line to what you were contemplating. Best of luck :-)
