Just bought this house in Denver. Any suggestions for new plantings or paint?

What a difference it will be without huge bushes hiding the house. Maybe you should do a planting away from the house, so the entire porch is visable. I would look for natives in varigated, burgundy, and green. Add perrenials and annuals for color. Hanging baskets with fern would look nice in the warmer months.

I would paint the trim: Grant Beige HC-83, Camouflage 2143-40 Paint or Northern Cliffs 1536 Paint.

I'd paint the shutters green: Mountain Lane 488 by Benjamin Moore, chimichurri CSP-810 or secret path CSP-800.

Good luck!
