Here are a few thoughts...

- It's not a lot of information to go on - that one small photo.

- Yes, it is possible to "refresh" this house without a complete remodel.

- Note that the house has been remodeled quite a bit already.

- Any much more specific advice would either be a fairly arbitrary expression of the taste of the person responding, or else would probably be better informed by more expression from you of what you think you are looking for.

- Where is the house (what climate, social context)? What is the character of the street and nearby buildings? What direction of the compass is the house facing? What is behind the windows of the main and front facades?
