Building Bohemia

I have been struggling with a paper trying to communicate that the 19th and 20th century Artist House is the perfect example of the Modernist Manifesto. Formal boundaries of the domestic are broken down, the decor is an expression of travels and experience rather than riches and work and life are blended into one. How academic of me to not put the three examples together visually. These are the parlor of Olana-1891,The Bloomsbury group's Charleston circa 1920 and finally the Eames House-1949. Is that the same rug!????
