The Becerras love Mission style Mexican artwork. They take their family to Mexico every year and enjoy celebrating their Mexican heritage back home in the United States. Their home is a 1950s post-war boxy building with tired awnings and an outdated rock garden.


The boring house colors and mismatched driveway make the house look drab. Designer Joshua McCoullugh has a vision of turning this modern box into a warm, Mission-style home complete with hand-painted tiles, custom arbor awnings and chili-flavored paint colors.


  • Change trim color
  • House paint "wash" to add dimension and color to stucco
  • Brick removal and widening of driveway
  • Stain concrete
  • Create new curvaceous pathway to lessen boxy feel
  • Remove cloth awnings and add original arbor awnings
  • Remove the entire front garden and add colorful Mission garden and small patio area
  • Mission-style bird bath, house number and mailbox
  • Handpainted Mexican stepping stone tiles
