Need help with exterior colors for my house

I recently acquired a house that I am excited about. It's been abandoned for some years and this is it in it's present state. The back of the house faces the access road, and there is a L-shaped pool at the front, (behind the concrete balcony wall). I need ideas for a colour palette and improvements to the back. Any thoughts?

It looks like a very nice home. Love the wrap around pool and the steps.
As far as suggestions is literally a black slate!! There are so many ways you could take this. Are you more modern or traditional?
What is the area behind bars and what is the area accross from it at the other side of the pool?
Here are some pictures for inspiration?
For some reasone I keep thinking Yellow on the bars. Would make a good contrast with the pool.

I keep envisioning a subdued orange and keeping the colour of your trim as it is. I don't know how to upload pics from houzz so once i find out, i'll show you what i'm thinking.

Love the house!
Could use a general clean up, landscaping and a good pressure washing. The pool is awesome.
Don't know your style preference, but when I looked at your photos, I pictured more colour, as in bright pops, as well. Perhaps even painting your windows a standout colour. Your area looks more tropical. I would stay with the general white otherwise, will deflect light and keep the house cooler. Also goes well with the modern vibe of your new home. Would love to see whatever you do... Best of luck!
