This is my first house, and like all new home owners....I want it too look nice, but I have NO idea what I am doing. This is the photo of my house. I want to build a nice low retaining wall (I think that's it...maybe block border I should say) for the flower bed. I was considering doing the block in a neutral beige color...with red mulch....and painting the trim of the windows off white...and adding square wooden columns where the metal supports are on the porch. I'm going to keep the shutters black.
PS...when I first bought the house....everything but the brick was white. It was white overload. ANY advice is much appreciated. Pictures or links are SO appreciated!
