Landscaping for front yard - please help!

This is my first post, but I've spent the last day lurking and reading. So far I'm super impressed with the help you are able to provide.

I'm hoping you may be able to help me figure out what to plant in my front yard. I can try and post a picture later but basically it's a plain bungalow-style home with a large, grassy front yard and a garden bed running along the front of the house. What do you plant in the front of the house. It's a south-exposed yard and gets plenty of sun. Right now there's just two Rhodo's and I'm not impressed with them.

If you have any inspiration or inspiration pictures please post them - I'd love any help I can get!

Thanks guys! Love the pics.

I'm still figuring out my way around these boards but I'll try and post a picture and maybe that will help more.

Here's our front yard. We've removed a lot of the plants and shrubbery (some were diseased & overgrown and the big plum tree was doing a number on our driveway so we had to take it down a few weeks ago).

Any thoughts (and be honest, I know it's a quite a 1970's bungulow! haha!)
