Our house is ugly. I would like to update it with new fresh paint colors. The gutters are dark brown and apparently cannot be painted. The brick is an ugly array of coral and beige. Please help!!!

I also have the same awful brick, don't know what trim colors to use, it's a problem. Have considered painting the brick but concerned about results due to the deep groves. Help!!

I don't think that your house is ugly at all, I just think that it is lacking in "curb appeal" I think that if you plant some flower and low growing shrubs in flower-beds in the front of the house it may not seem so "ugly" to you. Since your garage is large and not too attractive you might want to paint garage door, trim, and base of garage all the same color. This way the garage will blend in to the back-round and not stand out. As your looking at the house, the tree on the right could be pruned back a bit so that it doesn't block the house from view. The brick I would not touch. Since your brick has some light and darker oranges in it, you could use grays or blues for the door or maybe for the trim. I'm not sure why you said the gutters can't be painted that should be easy enough to do. If you can not more your trash cans out of site, you could place a small screen from house out just enough to hide trashcans from view.
