Q: I'm moving into this place on friday and have fallen in love with the current renters layout (see photos for an example). I've since haggled to keep the bed and the lounger, but everything else he will be taking with him. I don't have a huge budget right now and I'm new to the whole interior decorating scene and I'm wondering if I could get some opinions on color and layout.

Would adding dark furniture really close up the space visually? I ask because I have a nice black leather futon and a small dark coffee table that I'm going to be bringing in. Other than that I have a white desk for my workstation, a dark dresser that's going beside the bed, and a giant expedit shelf that I was going to put at the foot of the bed to act as handy storage as well as a room divider.

Thoughts?
