First try toning the pipework down with Plasti-kote 'stone' spay paint. I used this on ours and it makes a heck of a difference. I also used it to disguise an ugly gas meter box too. I have ivy growing up the wall next to it which takes the eye away from the pipework. I got some of those pots that strap around pipes (sprayed them too!) and planted up with seasonal plants and bulbs. After a while you stop looking up!
Whatever you choose to do, tone those pipes down!
