    I didn't quite understand your question but, good Job! It is all beautiful. My only suggestion would be to plant a small tree on the right corner of the house. You need something large there to balance the other side. Maybe something like a dogwood.

      Dogwood would look good however it took our last one in the backyard 7 years to grow 4 feet.... but am looking for something to go on porch, it is empty....

    ”would like to do so,etching” ...?

    what does that mean?

    you want to etch what? The glass door?

  • Looks lovely. I have seen people put flower boxes the railings so they can be seen and they add lots of color.

    i think your porch looks great. Maybe a chair on the porch, or some kind of pot to add some color.

    Do you have any seating on the porch? Any plants? Any tables? Perhaps some nice wall art? I ask that because that would give you some serious color pops on the porch as well as define your interests somewhat.

      I am wanting what ever I do to be seen from the street. I think that is the confusion. Before the railing anything I put on the porch could be seen, but now, well, I think no one will see it except me......

    Where could the wall art go from the link?

    Punches of color.

    if you like that yellow chair, then find some large yellow flowerpots or paint the ones in front of the porch.

    Then add other yellow punches on the porch or in front of the house.

    Hello. Plants? Hanging ferns from your gutters or even house With hook in the porch area might be attractive or possibly flowering planter boxes hanging from the railing would add a punch of color.

    Railing planters, faux "grids" on the smaller side windows, more plants of varying heights and colors, a trellis with a climbing flowering vine inbetween the windows, a bird bath or fountain, a flag or sculpture on the wall next to your address sign, yard lights.

    You've got a lot gping on there already. Lots of lines, textures, focal points. Put a hanging plant to the right of your house numbers (our left). Call it good.

    Do some flower pots that hang on the deck rails with colorful flowers
