Prune the shrubs or change the landscaping. Do you have bigger photos? Have they settled on a budget?

The picture is a little small but the first thing that jumps out at me is the entry...it needs to have more substance.

I'd change the hardscape and landscaping to something more dramatic. That needs a landscape designer. See if there's a landscape designer in your climate zone who has photos on houzz.

Way too much roof and shrubs. The entry needs work, larger columns some interest at top either with open beams or curved ceiling and hanging lamp. Maybe a gable and window on the roof to the right of the entry. Paint siding more interesting color.

Columns should be removed and roof over front door should be replaced with a more curved roof to somewhat neutralize the sharp angles from the rest of the roof, maybe even a flat roof with wide white columns. (Pic 1) A neutral coat of a very light beige or grey would look nice with the color of the existing roof. (2nd pic house color). White bold trim around existing widows. Scattered foliage and shrubs throughout the driveway and pavers (Picture 1&3). I also think the addition of pavers would assist to further seperate the driveway from the lawn.
That house has good potential.

Prune, add some rock garden accents, create landscaping beds that meet up with driveway but do not line fully. Change color of brown on house. Very drab color, Beautiful home.
