The timing of these studies parallels a growing shift in interior decoration. During the early part of the twentieth century, the concept of interior decoration started to spread beyond the exclusive boundaries of the social elite, which immediately brought into question issues of finances. The middle class could not offer the same carte blanche opportunities to the decorators and designers. 9 Researchers analyzed the design of kitchens and offered space-saving techniques to supplement new technologies to assist the housewife.

8 Advice for the householder continued to proliferate throughout the Victorian era, with the best-selling Macmillan’sArt at Homeseries, which included Rhoda and Agnes Garrett’s Suggestions for House Decoration (1876) and Lucy Orrinsmith’s The Drawing Room (1877). Orrinsmith criticized the modern domestic interior in no uncertain terms: It must have been remarked that great artists never choose to represent an ordinary modern English house, either inside or out; the “why” is obvious. Our houses are crowded with ugly shapes disguised by meretricious ornament.

The Victorian domestic interior can be characterized as a shelter, protection from the threats of modernity that lay beyond the threshold of the front door. Cushioned and shielded from exterior forces, the home, ideally, provided the ultimate safe haven. As Friedrich Engels noted about being on the streets in London in the 1840s: A town, such as London, where a man may wander for hours together without reaching the beginning of the end, without meeting the slightest hint which could lead to the inference that there is open country within reach, is a strange thing.
