"We have a lot of historical homes, in all different design styles," she says. "Younger clients are sensitive to the architec- ture and they like to tie it in with the interior design." They also like to include "wow" elements that impress family and friends, such as high-end, industrial-style ap- pliances. And they aren't afraid to use color, as shown in a recent remodel where designers at JDR used teal-colored tile in multiple hues contrasted with white tile as the count- er-to-ceiling backsplash in the kitchen. In the bathrooms, colorful and graphic tile sheathes the walls and floors in dramatic fashion. Even historic homes get vibrant updates, as illustrated in a bathroom remodel where the young homeowners chose black hexagon mosaic tile accented with white tile for the floor, combined with glossy black subway tile and wallpaper featur- ing a turquoise base with colorful butterflies for the walls. Entertaining is important as well, and given the Southern California climate, young homeowners often extend the indoor living space to the outdoors. Clients in this age group are also all about technolo- gy, and they want to find ways to incorporate it into their homes. "If they can control something from their phones, that's ideal," she says, noting that they want to manage everything from audio and visual to security and lighting to HVAC and appliances. While 30-somethings are just beginning their life journey, Machado-Rosas indicates they do surprise her with their long- term awareness. Tatiana Machado-Rosas' younger clients aren't afraid to go bold with their product and material selections. In this renovation, the designers at Jackson Design & Remodeling used teal-colored tile contrasted with white tile as a backsplash in the kitchen and vibrant tile in several of the bathrooms. Creating a unique personal space is an overriding consideration for many of Machado-Rosas' young clients. In this bath renovated by Jackson Design & Remodel- ing, the homeowners chose black hexagon mosaic tile accented with white tile for the floor, combined with glossy black subway tile and wallpaper featuring a turquoise base with colorful butterflies for the walls.
