Don't know what your design style is, but I would want to modernize the exterior and emphasize the clean lines. I would paint it all a light gray or white color and use white or gray for the larger trim. Replace the ornate railings with plain glass and stainless steel. Remove the bars from the windows, the decorative corbels and perhaps replace the windows with something simpler and more modern. Remove the pergolas over the balconies and use some colorful modern canvas awnings. Remove all potted plants and extraneous ornamentation. Replace hanging sconce on balcony with recessed lights.

The above suggestion would be quite a contrast in style for you especially noticing your name - where is this residence located and could you give a bit more information regarding your personal taste and style?

Thanks for the suggestions – this is a Mediterranean style, I seek help how to completely modernize the exterior. The house was built 15 years ago. Kindly provide your advice on balcony and windows replacement – Any proposal for the entrance/ veranda?

I would take the arbor structure from the left side of the picture and create something similar connecting the front balcony and the front door into a more impressive entry. You need to celebrate the entrance. Also, I would look into painting the white plaster exterior with a richer tone, something to reduce the contract between sheer white and the reddish tone stone work. I would also paint all the exterior steel a similar color, and look into more green landscaping around the front door.

I love the ironwork! If you put Mediterranean in the HOUZZ search engine a lot of Mediterranean houses come up that might be of value to you.

Pending on your style, a door with intricate iron work would really do well in that space.
