Any suggestions on decorating a dark NY city apartment to make it seem brighter and appear to have more natural sunlight than it actually does? HELP?

One way to lighten a space is to use lighter curtains, rugs and throw pillows....Do you have pictures of your space?

Also, select bright sunlight colored artwork for the effect you desire:

a photo of the room would help, but I would suggest a clear glass panel(s) mounted on the brick held out about 1.5-2" and mini recessed or directional lighting from the ceiling at wall to illuminate

No. I don't have a picture yet. We signed the lease but we don't get in for two weeks. It has a window that faces a courtyard that has brick buildings right outside.
