@barbaroo I also think you can add the color you crave with a cottage garden and a coordinated color on the door. Your flowers could be bright yellows, reds, and oranges, for example, and a red or yellow door. The rockers could coordinate, too, if you like. Put more curves in your garden and widen it. (Keep in mind that my ideal house ALWAYS includes masses of flowers - not everybody's taste!)

It's a beautiful house!
