Join us as we take a closer look at the impact mass media has had on domestic spaces. Magazines, trade shows, advertising and television have shaped our understanding of an ideal home. They both influence and are formulated by what domesticity means at a particular moment. The media continuously influences our understanding of domesticity and interior design. From television shows to glossy magazines, the home has been the object of consumerist desire for more than a century. It simultaneously expresses and defines individual identities, fulfilling our need for social conformity. Thus, the direct connection between the emergence of the domestic ideal and the rise of industrial capitalism does not come as a shock. The existence of the home as a consumerist object has given it a prevalence in media and popular culture that cannot be compared with any other architectural typology.
