Add a new welcome mat. Get a iron plant holder and new lighting.

Right now your garage doors are the focal point, because they are white. What about painting them in a 'greige" to lessen their impact? What is the material to the right of the front doors? Could you change the color there to brighten it? Beautiful door, by the way....

I'd paint all the white parts, including garage doors, greige or taupe. Door trim white like windows. Looks like the planter could use reworking. Replace the white table on the porch with a large pot for the flowers.

Love the front door! The plant stand seems to crowd the entrance, have you thought of maybe a wrought iron window box beneath the window? In my opinion the white is too stark with the bricks. Toning it down with a taupe color may be what you're looking for. Try only painting the area in the middle where the window is and stand back to see if it has the impact you are looking for before painting everything. Good luck.

I'd moved the plant in the entrance since the space is very limited. I'll update the lights and maybe put a unique address plaque in that wall. A nice welcome mat would also be cool. How about a door knocker?
