Don't Create Clutter - Clear clutter off the lawn and around your home's exterior, including hoses and hose reels, mismatched lawn ornaments, and kids' toys. Also, refrain from using the front porch as catchall for sporting equipment and gardening tools. Move these items into the garage, shed, or side porch when not in use.
Example palette: If you are working with red brick siding, try painting your front door black and then choosing a gray-blue or blue-green color for the rest of the house, such as Heather Gray 2139-49 (siding A), Intrigue 1580 (siding B), or Galapagos Green 475 (Siding C), all from Benjamin Moore.
