Need exterior design help for this 1960s split level ranch

What can I do color wise to refresh the curb appeal of my 1965 split level ranch? The trim & shutters have always been black, for the 55 yrs this home has been ours. I'm open to other colors that compliment the pink brick. Also, I'm not crazy about the lace iron balcony facade. My guess is the builder was from New Orleans, but cannot confirm. When I see houses with this feature it just looks dated to me (I love country French as a style, just not used in this way). Would it give the house an uplift to remove it altogether?? (it is not a functional balcony, only cosmetic) - - It seems it would make that half the house less shadowy (but maybe that's just me)
