We just bought this house and don't move in until Sept. I need help on front door color. I may add window shutters too. This house is 8 miles from the Gulf with a bay nearby. It's heavily shaded with Southern live oaks. The brick is mottled with a little bit of red. I don't remember if red is a brown red or maroonish. The storm door is common here as added protection against hurricanes, so it will stay. Ignore the deer - they're outta there!

HELP! I want to update my dated 1971 house, but I don't want to try and fool people into thinking it's a new house. I just want a more artsy, cottagey, hip look that doesn't cost a lot. I am a gardener, so the planter boxes that are built in will stay, but I am going to have my handyman remove a portion in front of the door, so I can make a path way through the center of the yard to the street. Additionally, my yard will be filled with more trees, fruit trees specifically and will have more garden space. For the exterior, my handyman will be removing the cheap paneling on the top portion of the house and hanging new faux shutters- perhaps the vertical slat style. I am thinking either an all glass door or a door with paneled windows (square) at the top- to let more light in. I'm thinking red door, maybe coal colored shutters, white trim and white trim around door- All block will be painted- maybe one additional color on the block line directly beneath the windows. I'm just not sure what body color for the house- but I want it to go with the grey roof. I'm not married to any color ideas, except I prefer cool and neutral tones and nothing too nuts. I'm really bad at choosing paint colors- so I appreciate any and all advice from those with more skill than I. My neighborhood is mainly beige, so I'd really like to make a little bit of a statement. Thank you!

Need some help with front door colour ideas! I usually use Benjamin Moore or Behr. I have lime green adirondack chairs, terra cotta stone in garden. Brick is a light beige with a slight yellow tinge. Wine colour isn't too bad but since I need cushions, mat etc thought I would paint. A lot of people are painting black but thinking I would like a colour, drawn to warm fall tones, looking at rusty nail, terra cotta pot I put outside looks good with the brick. Need to purchase an outdoor mat, waiting until I find the right colour. Thought I could get cushions with burgundy, terra cotta, lime green and some beige tones maybe a print? Tree needs a good trim! Thank you for your suggestions!

Have a 100% shaded side of the house that is absolutely blank. Just found out the rock in the landscape is limestone, which is detrimental to plants. Any advice to help this area would be greatly appreciated :). Thank you.
