Good Questions

Q: My girlfriend and I just moved into a small apartment in Brooklyn. The living room is especially small and narrow. The exact dimensions are 7 and a half feet wide by 13 feet long. It is located in between the bedroom and the kitchen and has no windows so it gets very little to no natural light. I was wondering if anyone can give suggestions on how to set up the room? Paint color suggestions? Things to avoid? I have been thinking about getting a long media stand but I am starting to re-think that. Will long furniture make the room look even smaller? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
