My clients going away from the whites an creams and tending towards light grey, blue and greens
@Hamilton interiors perhaps a new trend is on the horizon. We've definitely seen an increase in greys.
Thanks, I will probably go for cotton then. This website has 3 types - cotton twill which is meant to be heavier and aparently better for furnishings, prima cotton and combed cotton. Do you think I should go for the twill since it suggests that is for funishings while it suggests the others for craft etc.

Thanks Abi, Terence and Kurt....enjoy the Bank Holiday...!
I agree with Jonathan re an oversized mirror. You could try one behind the sofa, it will also make the room feel wider.
The walls already look a warm shade but you could go lighter. Have a look at those with yellow or red undertones. http://www.farrow-ball.com/neutral-groups/content/fcp-content
alternatively dulux do a light and space paint that you could try.
I think the room may be better balanced keeping the window. A Roman blind hung outside of the recess shouldn't reduce any light, keep the blind similar to the wall colour. I might put the TV over the fire to free up space depending on its size. Maybe add something to the mantle to detract from the TV. I would also add a glass coffee table to bring furniture into the middle of the room. I'd get a rug similar in colour to the floor. If your sofas are dark then lighten with cushions and a throw.
Use white subway tiles with the Arabesque design - Simple and Decorative style for an accent feature, seen this and looks very good!
I would suggest having functional roman blinds inside your square bay to keep the bulk out of the corners. When open, this optimises the natural light and keeps the view clear and open. When the blinds are down at night they are much more opulent and cosy than roller or wooden blinds.
To dress the window I would opt for dress curtains on the outside of the bay to dress and frame the window and really make it a feature. Whether you have them soft and drawn back in a tieback or in smart clean pleats would be a personal and practical choice.
Have you thought about removing the curtains and poles and opting for blinds? This could provide a more sleek look and give you more space around the bay window to allow the natural light to stream in and also make room for additional furniture.
Have a look at our image below...
I've picked a few swatches that might suit your colour scheme too...Eastern Weave Pacific, Spring Twig Blue, Kintyre Murray Blue. Also check out our website Bloc Blinds for more patterned and plain, dim out and blackout fabrics.
I would paint both as it will make the space look bigger
