    Carpet floors! Not tiled of wooden floor it will keep the heat in and make it cosy .choose deep colours like yellow orange red as a colour scheme avoid colours like White/blue .it will also give it a cost feel .when it comes to sofas etc use upolstry /corduroy creme and break the colour up with some cushions(perhaps orange ones) obviously don't paint or wallpaper all the Walls the same colour use a feature wall or it could appear too overwhelming use small lamps or dimmers as a light source to set that cosy feel:) have fun and good luck

    I would say a great wall decoration. Wall decals would make your apartment look very modern and cosy. Plus, they're easy to apply, removable and reusable. Much better and cuter than wallpaper! Here's where you can read more about wall decals:

    a fireplace, curtians, lots of pillows, oversized pillows, throw blankets, also paint the walls so their not stark white. Paint it off white or beige if your not comfortable with any bold colors. But leave the moulding white. I think wood floors and rugs on them are very cozy.

    The people living in it. All the other stuff doesn't matter.
