Japanese Influences

A bland home gets an infusion of Japanese style with simple changes.

Homeowners Diane and John Noguchi are proud of their Japanese heritage. Unfortunately, their house doesn't reflect their culture or personality. The house is painted a drab color, has no landscaping and totally lacks charm. Designer Dan Phillips creates a look that combines Japanese heritage and American style.

Here’s how they accomplish it:

  • Replace driveway with stamped concrete
  • Repaint house in shades of brown
  • Cover stairs in wood for a Japanese feel
  • Add an Asian garden with Japanese accents
  • Remove molding around windows
  • New house numbers and light fixtures
