    Fill it with booze and girls.

    And one single Eames.

    I have so many questions:

    1. Is this space for an apartment or office?
    2. You’re a poor student and are moving into this huge space alone?
    2a. If so, where in the world is this? I want to be a poor student there.

    The good:

    * That’s a ton of space! Is this a living space, or a work space? Will you be alone?

    * Looks like you have plenty of natural light.

    The bad:

    * the floor and ceiling are dirty and ugly, and the wall color is also pretty unfortunate. Can you paint?

    Lighting:

    * fluorescent tubes (and overhead lights in general) are awful, aren’t they? Floor and table lamps will be much more pleasant.

    Floor and ceiling:
    * that floor and ceiling are hideous. You can probably do more about the floor easily and cheaply; messing with the ceiling will probably get you in trouble, too. But you could cover some of those acoustic tiles with fabric or paper – they’re just resting in their frames and are easy to remove and modify.

    Walls:

    * Large posters would help cover the color and emptiness of the walls. Something big and bright that attracts the eye, but isn’t too visually busy sounds good to me. Open, light-colored wood shelving would also help out.

    Windows:

    * Curtains make an amazing difference. Looks like maybe you could put something up between the wall and radiator pipes? I would use a light colored fabric and a large pattern in a light color, somewhat like [this](http://www.westelm.com/products/abstract-triangle-curtain-sun-yellow-t2657/?pkey=ccurtains-drapes%7Clinen-curtains).

    I’m jealous of the space, I wish I had a room that big in my place.

    Actually I like that floor, but I would hang some thin, white, loose fabric under the ceiling (and leave those neon lights above it).

    Guys I don’t think he has the option of getting rid of the lights. I think what this is, is anti-squatting (legal squatting as he calls it). It leaves for limited possibilities though, as you are basically only there to ‘guard’ the building until a new destination for it has been found. Anyway, it really depends on your budget and on what you want, what possibilities you have, etc. I mean, it could definitely use some furniture, and you could even make part of it a co-working or studying space for study mates and friends, but the question is do you want to move or get rid of all that stuff again with all the involved effort, when you move out.

    I’m a poor student by the way, so please take that in consideration 🙂

    Change the light. Actually you could just use floor lamps and forget about the fluorescent tubes. Some nice curtains. Use a false ceiling to hide the one you have.
    The floor wont be so bad after you put some rugs in it and when the room be filled with furniture.

    You have an awesome place, now make it *yours*

    I’d look up “loft home tours” online (I recommend apartmenttherapy and homepolish). You’ll get some really good spaces to get the creative juices flowing.

    Fill the space with lamp lighting. Don’t use the fluorescent lights at all. Use a bookshelf or a console to divide sleeping space from living spaces. Rugs will warm it up.
