By 1930s standards, most of the homes in the United States had little else in common.
There was nothing modern about them.
Many of them were built with a simple, utilitarian style that was easily disassembled and reused.
For many homeowners, this style came with an uneasy relationship with the modern world.
A 1930s house could look great from the outside, but it was hardly modern.
If the exterior looked out of place, it could also be dangerous.
And while the home was not as functional as it is today, the interior was.
As interior design style evolved, many designers tried to modernize their design.
The New York Times called them “the modernists.”
But many interior designers also sought to modernise their designs by changing the way they were built, and the way people interacted with them.
Today, designers are faced with a dilemma when trying to modernity their designs.
How do you make your interior more modern and welcoming?
And how do you do it in a way that makes it appealing to people who have never experienced a 1930’s house?
We asked these designers to share their answers.
Interior design style as a visual discipline The most common way that interior designers modernize an interior design is to change the way it looks.
Modernizing an interior is about replacing the old look with a modern one.
The modernists are a little different.
They don’t want to simply change the interior of an existing house.
They want to change its appearance in a completely different way.
In their minds, the home needs to look as if it was built in the 1920s.
This means the walls must be made of old-style wood, and every panel needs to be lined with a new material.
The design must be timeless and clean, and its form must be a combination of wood paneling, tile, or even plastic.
But the modernists also see their project as a challenge to society as a whole.
Their goal is to make the homes of the future feel as modern as possible.
“It’s a challenge for the contemporary world, because modern design is a global project,” says Lisa DeAngelo, a member of the Modernist Museum of Art in New York.
“If we were to try to change it all in one day, it would be like taking the clothes off of the Titanic.”
To modernize a house, designers often use modern materials.
A 1920s kitchen and dining room from a house in the Netherlands The first modernist house to be modernized was a 1930 house in Amsterdam.
This one is the oldest in the city, dating back to 1875.
In its first months, the house was finished with an array of modern materials, from metal to glass, that were reused throughout the house.
The house’s most noticeable change is the red tile that surrounds the kitchen.
In the house’s 1930s décor, red tile was usually painted white.
But when it was used for decoration, the red color would be muted.
To modernise the kitchen, architect Johannes Reitz was inspired by the old-school dining room.
The Dutch architect wanted the dining room to be elegant and modern, with red tile as the main decor.
“I wanted it to look like the dining rooms of old,” he says.
“Red is a very, very nice color, it’s very easy to paint, and it’s easy to create.
But it’s not as clear as white, so it has a very interesting effect.”
To achieve the red-tile effect, Reitz built a modern kitchen and added a fireplace and a fireplace mantel.
He then painted the kitchen with red tiles.
The fireplace mantels were covered with glass.
Reitz added a large, white mantel and a gold table.
“The fireplace mantles are a way to show off the fireplace,” he explains.
“And then the table is a way for the guests to look in the fireplace.”
To make the kitchen more inviting, he made the stove a modern, high-efficiency appliance.
To make it look modern, he added a white floor.
Reets’ house is also notable for the red tiles around the kitchen sink and the red cabinets in the living room.
“He made the kitchen a bit more modern by using red tiles,” says Reitz.
“That’s why the kitchen has such a red and gold color, and I think it’s important to have that in an old house.”
Modernist house design is usually a mix of materials, but modernist architects have also gone one step further and tried to change how the home looks with glass, metal, and plastic.
The glass, which was also a common part of the 1920’s, was added to the kitchen cabinets, which were also red.
Reetz added glass to the walls, while also adding some glass to a door in the hallway.
Modernist design often focuses on aesthetics and functionality, but Reitz’s design is much
