Given how much time most of us spend at home, it's a shame most of us live in small, boring homes or apartments. If home is where the heart is, these interior design ideas will ensure that your heart stays happy!

Some of these interior design ideas are grand, sweeping, expensive installations, but for those of us without the money to spare, there are smaller home decorating ideas too that are still doable and will give your home a personal and unique design. And for those of us who live in city apartments, there are also plenty of home decor ideas that will help you save space!

If you have a cool picture of a brilliant piece of modern design that you think should be on this list, then be sure to add it! Upvote your favorite ideas and modern architecture pieces as well.
