Need Help Deck Stain

We just roofed and remodeled the deck on this 1966 white brick ranch home on the lake. I need help choosing deck stain to add interest to the home. We are not opposed to multiple colors and stain types. Looking for suggestions to enhance the rear view of our house. Thank you!!!!

HI -- Paint the ceiling of the deck a pale blue -- it helps keep the hornets away and it just looks nice and fresh . Plant some foundation plants around the bottom, in front of the lath. Like a mass planting of day lilies or barberry (it has prickles -thorns) or ornamental grasses like purple feather grass . I think day lilies are best - because you get flowers and then have the grass type foliage -- very nice .
