OK--light is the major factor. Indoor plants want INdirect light only, not direct sun shining through a window. So no plants parked in front of a sunny window, or they'll burn badly.
Most condos and apts are not highly lit; their outside walls have one smallish window in the bedrooms (low light) and one window near the kitchen and one slider downstairs, so low to medium light in the living area. More windows mean better light, if so, lucky you!
As far as that internet list goes, the best plants on it for low to medium light are philodendron types (hanging/climbing cordatum-'heartleaf' and upright, large leaf Monstera types) Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily) and Snake plant (verrry slow but very hardy if not overwatered.)
I'd forget about the different Ficus on the list as they need considerable indirect light to be happy, and they're not particularly tolerant of dry indoor air. Schefflera (Umbrella plant)is a bushy med height plant and more tolerant of both conditions and I'm surprised they're not listed, but the list is from ivillage, after all.
For hanging plants, the heart shaped Philidendron and Pothos are the hardiest, and not bad looking. Spider plants are ground covers in the humid tropics and rarely thrive indoors here, but WILL take forever to die. Ivy is low light tolerant but hates indoors; they will invariable get spider mites and die within months. And infect your other plants too. They have the bejesus sprayed out of them at the growers as well.
Take a trip to Terra Del Sol and the knowledgeable staff there will not steer you wrong, but be sure to ask for low light-tolerant plants unless you have a conservatory. They can also give you specifics on watering each type, which is very important. Start small and build up if you are having luck. Good quality tropical are not cheap.
