I'm buying this house and I feel like the blank facade needs something

Is the middle section of the house a stucco finish? If so, it would be nice if they could come in and apply a decorative trim piece over the porch area.

I agree Deborah. Thanks. Trying to find a suitable design online. Any suggestions?

Here is my idea. Repeat some of the existing elements, and emphasize the stucco in a columnar fashion, with decorative lamps at +78" above grade. Happy Thanksgiving!

...And you could place a back light in the attic space within a light box (to add definition to the effect, instead of looking like a light in a tunnel), placed on a timer, that will light up randomly. An added anti-theft measure, that adds to the exterior interest. Happy Houzzing.

These might provide some inspiration. I was originally thinking the arch as you see over these garage doors in the first picture - but would prefer some color contrast. The second picture shows a simple trim surrounding the door with a large light above which is a nice touch. The third is more dramatic - and the roofline might not allow you to do anything like this.
