Here is the picture, all ideas welcome!!!
I wouldn't have to answer the question you asked, because my wife would do it for me.

However, if it were my call I'd do several things:
1. Paint the garage door white.
2. Paint the entry door a nice contrasting color. There are many options.
3. Paint the shutters a lighter color.
4. Build a curved patio, out of pavers, around the poured & covered front patio. That'll allow you to put plants & other attractive things there.
5. Plant flowers & shrubs.
6. Spiffy up your lawn.

The main problem I see is that the front of the house is boring. It's long, with no defining points of interest.

Enjoy improving your home!

Agree with all of the above. Trees,shrubs, paint, and fencing.

Lights on each side of garage door.

No roof vents in your house?
