How can I make my house look better?
Here are the things I was thinking of doing so far, but I am just stuck, not sure if I am on the right track. I have seen homes with smooth stucco and the use of stone/rock around the bottom of the house and was thinking of a putting in a faux wood garage door. The house has wood siding and the paint color is too cool for me, I want something warm. If anyone has recommendations on which stone/rock to use and a color? I was also thinking of breaking down the block wall on the left of the photo and adding an entry gate made with a wood door and pillars or matching stone/rock to the left of the house because my front door is actually in the back of the home, through the black gate. We are in the suburbs of LA but feels like a mountain community, lots of trees and wildlife and we are hoping to create a modern lodge feel to the home but don't know how to. If anyone has ANY suggestions, I would love to hear it. Btw, I removed everything in the planter, this is an old photo.
