We are in desperate need of an update to our 1950s ranch-style house in California. We recently purchased the home and think the look is quite dated, but don't know where to begin! We don't want to make any significant structural changes, but are open to most other ideas. I don't like the blue color and all of the white trim. We're thinking about getting rid of the brick, adding window trim, changing the columns, changing paint color, resurfacing porch / walkway, landscaping, etc. but we don't know where to begin or what would suit the house!
