This is a photo from the Century 21 listing for my house when I purchased it, back in 1989. It had brown shingles, new steel siding in "Wedgwood" blue, and white trim and shutters. (Also very overgrown shrubs that I soon removed!)
Fast forward to 2013, the roof has been changed to three tab "weathered wood" shingles, a terracotta accent color was painted on shutters and doors, and all new flower beds and foundation plantings were added. I chose a terracotta accent color, because "when I don't plant in junk, I choose terracotta pots"!
