1979 contemporary home update advice needed

Our cedar contemporary home needs a facelift! We have always loved the open floor plan and flow of our home but never loved the look of the exterior. I’d like to preserve the natural look and design, but maybe change some of the siding texture, color, or add some design elements to bring it up to date. I love the look of cedar but ours is dry as toast and no longer looks good. Also, after years of patching animal holes and and now due to water infiltration/rot in places, we’ve started replacing the cedar siding with Hardie siding on the back and are in process of replacing decking

. We are do it yourselfers for most part, but I need advice on how to bring home to life! Would love to know what you think!
