Shutters. Then Replace the bushes in front with plants that are short in height. It will open up the look of the front

What a nice house!

Stain the wood shingles with a color. (Don't know if you could powerwash them and see if they lighten and then maybe just seal them.) Remove the wall of shrubs, and plant smaller dwarf plants, not so close together. (Don't create new walls, lol.) Paint door and it's trim all one color, something strong enough to be noticed. You could paint the sidelights white or the color of the rest of your trim, or the same color as the door. I would not put up shutters. The 3 front windows will not fit them correctly.

Out with the hedges and in with pretty flower beds. Darken the trim - the white pops too much. Save the pop color for your door. Beef up the pencil posts on the porch with square columns that look substantial enough to support the roof. No shutters but if a major redo is in order you might change the the porch look entirely to be more like pic #1 below. Try flower boxes on the three windows above the garage. Porch Columns

Gray wash both the brick and shingles. Change the turned posts to square. Paint all the trim either a warm gray or off white. Paint the front door a contrast color. Consult with a local landscape or garden designer.
