Creatively painted lime green doors with hot pink stairs. Makes this otherwise bland entrance very fun and funky. A little paint can go a long way - this idea would also work well with bright blue and yellow or purple and turquoise.
The gray and pink scale do wonders with this. I love how the bricks are pink, from there you see the pink umbrella hanging downward. You can see the contrast of the pink, being bright, and the gray, staying neutral.
