Curb Appeal for 1980's Colonial-style

4 years ago

Hi everyone, we recently moved into the house we hope to stay in for at least 20 years. It will be great for our family - neighborhood, layout, school district, yard... it's got it all, but there's an abundance of red. We haven't done anything to the exterior yet except recent tree servicing.

We are open to any suggestions except for painting the brick. I am aware that it isn't an attractive brick color, but we don't want to paint the brick. We would like to paint the cedar siding, trim, shutters, and front door (or replace it altogether). What colors will work with what we've got?

Someone suggested that we add a portico to the existing front porch. We see a lot of that in our area, and think it might work. Also, we want to entirely re-landscape the front beds by the house. We would love suggestions!
