i also live in a tenement with high ceilings and a tiny bedroom. You room looks quite dark, so some fresh paint in a light crisp shade will brighten the place up. Floor length curtains will help the walls look taller and therefore the room bigger. The bed is the biggest item in the room so make a statement of it. Big furniture can really make an impact on a small room. If you can, put more shelves up. Go as high as you can. As people have said, purge your stuff and keep essentials. Anything sentimental can go on display on higher shelves and everyday items on lower ones. If you space out your items over several shelves, instead of fitting as much as you can onto one it'll also space the room out too. Hope this helps!

Being a (mature) student in an unfurnished rental with little cash to spare, I've gone for a budget option that looks really good. I bought 2 cheap, solid wood chairs from Ikea at about £12 each, and picked up the rest in charity (thrift) shops, free on Gumtree (Craigslist) and one off the street. Cleaned then up and painted them. I bought a tin of bright blue washable paint to paint my bed, but there was so much left over I managed to paint all the chairs the same shade. They look great around my plain old pine dining table and cost very little to make.
