Good Questions: Accent Color Options?

Pin it button big

Dear AT,

I've attached some pics. of the back of our house prior to purchasing it.

Although, it looks a little different due to our own outdoor furniture and some more landscaping, the one tone green and the yellow trim on the one window is killing me.

We are not in a position to fully repaint the exterior, but I was wondering about accent colors to give some dimension...

The front of the house has contrast, as it is 1920's brick bungalow, and the back is a newer addition.

The soffits are a creamy yellow, but I think this green is a strange shade and can't envision what could work.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks! Sage
