Another 2 bed and 2 bath city (Surry Hills) apartment is on the market. Though slightly smaller than the one just posted, it too has a good floor plan, though missing a dining room and not much aspect from the balcony.
For the kitchen cabinets, I would paint them a black matte colour, like the below, and add a feature light over the bench.
For the living dining area, I would place the couch so that it is looking out to the balcony and then have the tv on a cabinet against the wall next to the master bedroom.
Then the dining table, would be against the wall coming from the entry way and I would add either a painting to the wall, or a shelf like the below.
For the balcony, I would add plenty of pots and tall plants to create a screen to add privacy.
