First of all the garage door should be painted the same color as the siding, not white. The white makes the garage stand out more than the house. Before removing the vent you might want to try to paint the actual vent in with siding color and if after you painted the garage the siding color and the vent the siding color and it still sticks out you might want to consider painting the trim and vent the siding color. Removing the vent might solve that problem but, make sure that you can match the siding exactly. Is is a factory finish or painted? Can you get the exact type of siding? If it's a factory finish it most likely will not match perfectly due to fading and you may then need to repaint the siding of the entire home.

I agree with Rhonda, but I would go to a 6 or 7" Lay. Plus a repaint on Hardi is much nicer

would love to see more pictures of back and sides of home. Can't picture the trim on the sides. Did you consider painting the brick?

I would check into having a professional stain the brick a darker color. I know of an individual who had that done, turning an ugly new peach colored brick into a beautiful gay colored brick. It totally transformed the look of the house. Good luck!

We need a few more pictures from different angles with various views of the front, sides and back of the house. Given the picture shown here definitely no on the soft yellow.

My first thought is to stick with white trim so you don't have to paint those dormer window frames.
