HELP! I want to update my dated 1971 house, but I don't want to try and fool people into thinking it's a new house. I just want a more artsy, cottagey, hip look that doesn't cost a lot. I am a gardener, so the planter boxes that are built in will stay, but I am going to have my handyman remove a portion in front of the door, so I can make a path way through the center of the yard to the street. Additionally, my yard will be filled with more trees, fruit trees specifically and will have more garden space. For the exterior, my handyman will be removing the cheap paneling on the top portion of the house and hanging new faux shutters- perhaps the vertical slat style. I am thinking either an all glass door or a door with paneled windows (square) at the top- to let more light in. I'm thinking red door, maybe coal colored shutters, white trim and white trim around door- All block will be painted- maybe one additional color on the block line directly beneath the windows. I'm just not sure what body color for the house- but I want it to go with the grey roof. I'm not married to any color ideas, except I prefer cool and neutral tones and nothing too nuts. I'm really bad at choosing paint colors- so I appreciate any and all advice from those with more skill than I. My neighborhood is mainly beige, so I'd really like to make a little bit of a statement. Thank you!
