Help me improve curb appeal and update the look of house

The brown racer stripes down the awning are hideous! The wrought iron railing painted white (sooo 1980’s) isn’t helping. The roof is brown and will be for a while. Until that can be replaced I’m debating if I should try and make the yellow and brown tones work.

For example I could paint the front door Hamilton blue (benjamin Moore) and paint the awning white (to go with the white railings). However, I feel that will still be a dated look.

The other option is i pretend the brown roof doesn’t exist (lol) and go with the color scheme I want. I would ideally paint front door a bright red, change the shutters to black, and paint the awning and the railings black to make them look like true wrought iron. I would also plant some evergreen shrubs in front of the home too.

what do you think would look nicer:

painting front door blue and awning white to make current color scheme work?


go with updated color scheme, even though the roof will be brown...?
