After seeing the class, I think I would remove the two plants in the edge and add two different shape and tall light color plants. then small ones in the front of the two in the middle with contrast color like yellow. :)

I like Isasas's comment below - while it's looking pretty good, you might consider adding taller plants on the end to soften the hard lines of the walls. And there's lots of green foliage here - how about a plant with maroon foliage? Or variegated gold and green?

in front of the bricks on each side of the windows... you could plant two tall shrubs that would care the color of your edging bricks... making your windows pop.... then paint the cross frames of your window and your front door, a bright yellow, and add some small 8-12 inch yellow perennials at the base of your two green shrubs below the window for balance and contrast.

One thing that I learned through my Master Gardener class was to make beds 5' deep. That allows plenty of space for the background plants and this Mehta you want to put in front. I can't tell thaw those plants that are blooming are? Or if you are in alkaline or acid soil. BTW, did you feed those plants? Giving them extra food to help their blooms really does make a significant difference. Also beds are not straight, like plants, there are curves that make it more appealing. Next time add some closeup pics, too.
