Spruce up Exterior on a Yellow/Tan and Brown Brick House!

5 years ago

I'd like to spruce up the exterior of my house - I don't think it's been changed since it was built in the 80's, and many of the surrounding houses have similar looks. Updating the siding is not an option, and I've heard a lot of opinions that painting brick is not a good investment, although I may be open to it.

I do think we'll be changing out the garage door this summer. I also thought about maybe colored cedar shake siding on just the two large triangle portions of the house? Different landscaping? Any ideas would be helpful.

As some extra insight, my design style tends to lean more towards making new look older/more intricate. I really like French country or New Orleans style houses.
