My daughter who is our resident Twilight expert, and who knows my passion for modern houses, brought this to my attention. I asked her if the house was described as modern in the book - she said no, but that it was supposed to be all white inside. So what's going on with this? Apparently the film makers believed that the modern house would add to the aura of the vampire characters, so they interpreted their house as an overtly modern home.
Once again it is an example of the media blatantly expressing the cultural value we've invested in the idea of a modern house. Now why can't America's builders wake up and catch on to this?
