Not sure how to decorate living room?

I usually make all curtains and blinds, but got fed up with it, so needing to re-decorate I bought these fantiastic quality curtains, a cancelled order from John Lewis, at a fraction of the price- two hugh full length pairs, one to go right across front window and one to cover the double doors on opposite wall, which lead into garden room. They are dark indigo navy with an neutral art deco type pattern. All our wood on windows and doors, skirtings ect are oak tone wood, as is floor and furniture. The room faces East and is not too light in the evening, it is quite compact and cosy with a wood burning stove. I am not sure what colour to put on the walls, we only use it for the evenings. I would like something warmer and more luxe in feeling than the taupish/grey, slightly Scandi scheme we have at present, which, lacks atmosphere in the evening light. Have I made a terrible mistake with these new curtains?! The two sofas are taupe/neutral, close to the colour in new curtains and we have to keep those.
