Update exterior of 1960 colonial home

5 years ago

My husband and I want to update the exterior of our 1960 Colonial home. It is just so dull and want it to pop. The house has painted gray cedar shakes with the original white shutters and a yellow door (behind the screen door), brick porch and walk. All of the windows have been replaced. Want to try to stay in line with the house's style. We were thinking of siding but what kind? Should we use shutters or not? What can we do with the porch (i.e. larger posts, no railing, etc.) ? We would also appreciate your thoughts on color. We want to redo the landscaping after the house is done.
