I love what deco posted, found another one that has a similar mix of wood and gray and just a touch or color on the left

Great house. I love the curved window section. Slate grey or black window trim would be a nice modern contrast with the wood stain, as pictured below. Contemporary Patio
If you want to break up some of the overall wood, you could think about having a stone wall at the entranceway with the shades of grey from the house trim and window trim in the stone. The Evergreen House

Wow! I think it's perfection just as it is! Maybe a pop of color on the front door?

I think the house is charming the way it is, would replace windows if necessary with dark brown casing, and change the front door to ones with some wrought iron pattern in it. This is a classic home, a shame to change much. MO

what color is your roof?
i can't quite tell.

if it's a grey, i would do the grey trim idea that's been posted already.

I also think a slate color would be a good choice. Are you staining it lighter than it is now?
