Good Taste
One of the reasons that this curve works is that there are is no concave element. If there is nothing concave, then nothing has sunk. Cheaper, too.

Horizon Interior Shutters
Some of the shutters in this article are not sized correctly, even with enough space on either side of the window. On the historic Philadelphia home the second story shutters have been removed. They should be replaced to have a complete appearance. See

Love some brick houses' dark trim, door colors Rachel's post. What trim, door, shutters, garage for this brick?

I am thinking something like below but this won't change much except for doors, shutters

From left to right -Trim, siding, all doors & shutters.

I am confused considering the brick, front door location (its on the left at the end of porch painted same as shutters). Please suggest!!

Current or light trim looks good with this brick but I really like houses with darker trims better. Lots houses in our neighborhood are medium/dark trims but with stone or other bricks.
