How to turn a white wall/black wood floor into a modern apartment?

I have 899 sq ft to work with and it's somewhat of a blank canvas. White walls, black faux wood floor apartment at Fox Hill. I'm looking for a modern feel so any ideas would be great! Help!

Also with it being an apartment are you allowed to paint?

For a chic, modern look: Start with a white fluffy area rug, or a graphic black and white. All the upholstery should be white with just a touch of black pattern in your pillows. One chair could have a b & w stripe, one chair a black frame, etc. For color get a large abstract painting in colors you love, and then add a pillow or two in those colors. Sounds like you have a good canvas to work with. Curtains could be white with a black pattern or just a stripe on a lead edge. If you want a more traditional look let me know and I can address that. I am crazy for black and white rooms!

I agree with Jane on the black and white decor, I LUV it...Timeless. Here is a picture applying fabric to the wall with starch, perfect for that Wow factor....GREAT for an apartment. Here is the HOW to:)) http://www.hgtv.com/decorating-basics/how-to-install-a-fabric-feature-wall/page-2.html
