Here's a better photo of the house. Want to leave it blue, change shutters, doors, foundation and steps. too obnoxious. or change some parts if the bright blue would be toned down in other areas. Thanks for suggestions already. someone asked for better picture.

Nice house! Gardening mens a lot! Shutters and trim: white, fundation: the same blue from the house, Steps: rescue natural wood and seal. Door, black, white, or if you go a little wise, red. Some hangin boxes with flowers in the windows ll look great! . Good look!

If you want to keep the light blue, how about using a medium cool grey for the shutters and foundation, but keep the white trim. What you do think about adding window boxes? I agree with Ika68 landscaping would help alot as well. You don't have to be a pro to do a flower bed, most plants and flowers come with planting instructions. For the shrubbery planting bed, varity is the key, choosing plants with different height and colr, really make them look nice. I suggest using a weed barrier between plants and covering it with mulch :-)

You could do a complimentary color or go for contrast.with your doors... We are painting our front porch this summer (hopefully), we are going with white (top and sides) and med. gray for the "floor" and top of the step.
