Boring Apartment Decorating

I'm moving into an boring, cheap looking, small one-bedroom apartment and I would love to see loads of pictures of how one might decorate a space with no fireplace, large windows, hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, or hanging lights.

I don't want to "overpower" the boringness of the space with bright colors or highly-stylized stuff. I don't like the IKEA look, or the Urban Outfitters college/hipster look. I don't like modern minimalist look.
I believe that couches and chairs should be big and soft. I am poor and would rather buy buy quality used furniture for the large pieces.
Here's an idea of what I'm working with:
The carpeting is light brown (and not new looking).
The walls are white and must stay white (no paint or wallpaper).
White hollow doors.
I CAN hang pictures and objects on the wall.
Suggestions of website images and picture books would be great!
