Please recommend how I can add to the curb appeal of my house. What color would you paint the trim and siding for more interest?

Your house looks amazing as it is. I would add a medium sized flowering tree in the grassed area to the left - assuming part of this is your property and not a neighbours. Something like a crabapple or a flowering dogwood would give a wonderful burst of colour in spring and would complement the design of your house.

I agree, I think the color is fine for a traditional house, and I'd play up more color and texture in the yard. Dogwoods are wonderful and you have the space for one

I also like the house as it is. If you don't, perhaps you could research houses of the same kind that have colours you like. Hard to see whether it would work, but I'm thinking of a path from the front door to the edge of the lawn, flanked by two really nice traditional lamps, with small shrubs planted around them. This lamp is the sort of thing I mean -- it's from ebay.co.uk, but I imagine there's plenty of choice in the US, if that is where you are.

And yes, trees are a good idea -- but use faster-growing shrubs, too. :)

Oh crumbs, I've just seen that this was posted February last year, not February this year. Oh well. It's Houzz's new approach of posting additional dilemmas by theme on the side of the page instead of current ones. I hope you got the advice you wanted when you posted.
