Cesar, you could do a terrific modern thing where you did the sides of the columns in a deep earthy bright like the noted mexican architect Ricardo Legoretto- see the image where inside the square is blue . . . this is from architectural digest. You could do that just on one side of the brick columns (facing away where people approach the house? with an earth amethyst tone and then a deeper earth tone on the other side and the face and back matching the house) I don't know how contemporary you are willing to be . . .but you can decide how far to take this. Even just having a better base color will do a lot for you.

With the earth tones on your windows and entry door, the main body and brick wants to be a camoflauge tone like bm coastal path http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/coastalpath
If you just want to highlight one side of the brick fins (don't paint the outside/side of the house fins different - just the inside of the outer two columns and both sides of the inner columns. On the side of the house you see when most people drive up to it - use this deeper olive undertone tan on the sides of the brick columns (not the back that faces forward or the end that faces forward - only the side plane) http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/woodstocktan
then, on the side that you see when you walk up the other way - do the fins in this amazing sunset amethyst that is muted out http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/tempest

Horizontal wood siding in the recessed areas above the windows. I also think something with texture like the upper part of the gray house would look nice in that area between the upper and lower windows.

Definitely go lighter on the trim. A light blue or green would be nice. Right now the only thing that stands out is the railing and wood under the porch which are not the best features of your home. You may want to paint the ceiling in the porch area light blue, which is traditional in some areas. It will also bring lightness into the porch area.

I'm thinking that you should stick with a light color for trim & windows otherwise all the detail will disappear. Light gray would be nice with a thin charcoal color trim around each window.

Portland house needs some background information about why you'd design a home with so many steps and levels on a pretty big flat lot? The Charlotte house has a lot of big retaining walls like the lawn in front of the house down to the lower level and around the garages that would be illegal here in California and most of the U.S. - by code any level change over 30 inches requires a guardrail. Would like to know how this house got around that? Am getting tired of Houzz and others showing illegal design elements and showing them off as good design. Can understand when it's from another country without our building standards but these are in the U.S.

Huge windows are very inefficient from an energy perspective. Heating is the main cost in this climate and there is tremendous heat loss through windows. There is nothing in this article about any attempts to mitigate this inherent problem. So this is beautiful but not green design in the slightest. And other commenters are right, these huge windows will be creating piles of dead birds below them. I can't imagine their window washing bill either. People need to consider the downsides of this design, it is simply not practical or environmentally friendly.

I forgot to mention to be sure to get under cabinet lighting. I have a north facing kitchen and not much light in winter and those under cabinet lights are wonderful to add warmth on those dreary days. I use it more than the overhead lights.

You will need more than one center light. The school house lights are great because they are simple in appearance and disperse light in all directions. Some are rated up to 150 watts which you can try out. 100 watts of incandescent bulb is not going yield enough light. Task lighting under the cabinets might work.

I suggest re-evaluating your wiring plan for overhead lights. Adding one more over a breakfast area will probably be a good option. If you have to swag one over temporarily, there are lots of light fixtures that can be used that way. Try lightingdirect.com to see what is out there.

get something with at least three bulbs. flush mount...simple and ample lighting is the way to go here. low ceilings dont call for much more then that. the directional will be ok but im not a fan when the ceilings are low. if this is the main light source for the room, do not do exposed bulbs, or clear glass, by the time you get the brightness you need the glare from the bulbs will kill you... go for halogen, or regular based sockets. halogen is great light, or regular sockets so you can mess around with different bulb options.

Showcase Gardens, while nothing is 100% sure, there are certainly places that are FAR more likely to experience natural disaster than others based on major yearly weather patterns or historical data. The rest of us would fall prey to something out the ordinary if one were to occur and this makes us usually pretty insurable as well. In my area, flooding is an issue (Seattle rain) but it is very unlikely that I will lose any more than sub-level flooring or something stored on the floor of my garage. Overall low risk.

Cedar shakes were my first choice, not an affordable choice unfortunately. I took 5 months to choose this "New Designer" color. What was I thinking? I am going to try a sample of edgecomb gray and pale yellow. BM Marina Gray is on the list too. I have tried white, it is very crisp, and clean. Seems a little mundane. Should I match the shutters to the roof color?
Thank you all for your recommendations!

GRRRR!!!! A major part of the problem is the "must not leave a single fallen leaf" HOA or city beauty codes that ensure a barren landscape.

I had several encounters with the city beauty police about leaving the duff under my mesquites, and one of my neighbors now HATES my "messy" and "trash-filled" yard because it's not 1/2 acre of swept gravel.

On the other hand, I've had red-tail hawks land and take branches away to their nests.

Here's a couple of ideas

1. stucco the front and add decorative tiles.
2. add some awnings over the door and dormer windows
3. Plant a tree on the right side of the house to conceal the way the house juts out on that end.

To make the door appear more balanced in the gable, put the house numbers large and vertical next to the door on the right.

Another balancing idea is to build a small deck at the top of the stairs that is as wide as the gable. Then put some pots of flowers on the area to the right of the door or perhaps a small bench there. One of the photos shows a raised platform with a pot of plants on top. That could work for you here too.

If you consider removing the tile and replacing it with matching hardwood, the only way to truly match would be to install the same size and species of hardwood (unfinished), sand the existing finish from the surrounding areas then stain everything the same color. I would recommend using a pro to handle a project like that.
Good luck!

Vinyl often looks cheap, but it has nothing to do with color. If your room is beige, beige vinyl won't make the room less monochromatic. Pink suede would be as colorful as the same shade of pink vinyl, more comfortable and more elegant.

I would work with white/off white in this space. The lighting is limited which means anything other than white/cream is going to get very dark very quickly. This can be countered by OODLES of lighting...but that bumps costs up, up, up. A dark(er) counter top with complimentary flooring should be enough to make you feel like you have changed the look without having to change to darker cabinets.

I think something like this would work for you. If you are extending the living room also create a little patio in front. To avoid confusion with the entry, change the double doors to a window. I don't think I would do anything about the upper story windows.

Before you spend a lot, paint your entry doors an accent color - and spend the money on great landscaping of that front area with whatever excavation would be required if you did push the lower level to the face and need 15' level. Paint the house bm blueberry hill with white trim and paint the front doors a sweet pretty garden green. Add a screen on the left down the entry path as part of a pergola backdrop that wraps and screens the space from the street. A single door in a farmhouse style with sidelights would send a stronger entry signal, but once you paint them differently, you may not feel you need to spend $ to do that.

Integrating the exterior is better with true divided lights, double hung with grids only on top, paired or tripled. Grids on the casements that flank the center bay would tie them in - or provide a top row of grids only on the picture window in the center.

It's a little hard to tell what opportunities the approach to the front may be, but here's a few thoughts.... If you want to bump the left side of the house out, what if you switched the upper bay windows to french doors onto a railed balcony? On the bottom level, if you don't really need/use the french doors to the right, do windows and infill a bit on the bottom. Columns supporting the upper small walkout balcony could help frame the visually correct area (either right side of bumpout or center) to a new entry door.
