    Just a couple of additional ideas -I can't tell if front door is a light colored wood or painted yellow? If yellow , perhaps add some yellow pots on both sides of front porch with fairly low growing shrubs. If its a light wood, I would stain it to more of a medium brown. Also , I would add 4 pieces of wider panels around the slim pole holding up porch roof on the right to bulk it up and square it off. Have a taller yard light moved closer to house between the post on right side of patio and the left side of the blue shutter to light the entryway and discard shorter one by driveway. Lastly , fill in the areas where the big bushes were pulled up with low or medium height flowering bushes!

    I love your garage door makeover and blue shutters! And removing those overgrown bushes made a huge difference-good job!!

    Wow Patrice, You certainly have any eye for decorating. Your ideas are spot on. I am tempted to send you a photo of a room I want to redo for your advice. You should hang up a shingle! Well done.
