Modern design is about clean lines and minimalism.  In a post-industrial era, many rejected the notion of traditional.  But in a beach house setting, you can’t forget the color.  Sleek and white make a home feel spacious and uncluttered but there’s surely a way to make modern more fun than sophisticated and stuffy.

Popham Design does a great job of taking geometric shapes such as the hexagon and combining them with a Moroccan touch.  The cement tiles such as their Hex Target in Cabana pattern can be used on floors or walls.
