A studio apartment: a huge soft bed in the middle like this with a HUGE painting, a tiny side stool/table for books, a standing lamp that resembles a mic stand (from Ikea alike), a large window on the adjacent wall, a couch at the window sill for friends. and a large white working table next to that window.
living room --even though the white mats/black frames are KILLING ME (as a framer, please don't do this to your art!) I love the idea of having a chalkboard on the wall with different quotes. :) With our literary house, this could be a blast! :)
