Paint shutters or not?

Our house was literally fifty shades of gray when we bought it (roof, door, lights, etc.) We painted garage door white, put in a black door and black lights. Should we paint shutters black or is gray Ok? We need curb appeal!

How about white shutters. I love the white garage door and the black door and maybe some flowering shrubs to add color

I like them the way they are....they match with the roof. I would add some color around your front door.

Black will punch it up by giving the house some contrast. Right now it looks washed out. Would you consider painting your front door the color of that red pot out front? It would look great!

I'm not sure black would give you the impact you are looking for. I think your answer is in adding curb appeal elsewhere. I would take the twin shrubs at the front steps and find two, beautiful, tall ceramic planters. Put the shrub in the planters to add height and add some creeping jenny or sweet potato vine for trailing interest. I'm a big believer in perennials in the front beds. Add some peonies for spring color, oak leaf hydrangea for summer and fall interest. Low growing coral bells are a great staple for the foundation garden and come in many varieties.
