An idea for exterior paint colors, I would go even lighter on the greige, and I love the black window frames and front door.(bungalow exterior paint body color is SW 7512 Pavillion Beige and the trim is SW 6098 Pacer White)
DIY - Glow in the dark pots with mums for fall/Halloween. Buy a flower pot that you really like and use Rustoleum's Glow-in-the-dark paint to paint the pot. During the day, the paint will absorb the sunlight and at night the pots will glow.
