Help with layout for chambre d'hote sitting room/dining room

I'm just completing a renovation project on an old farmhouse in Mayenne, north-west France to run as a B+B/chambre d'hote. The main communal room is roughly 5m x 5m, partially divided by a solid brick partition around 1m high. The stairs are being reinstated in their original position. This is where we are today...

This is how it looked before I bought the house from two rock musicians...

The room needs to house a comfortable sitting area (no TV!), a dining table and chairs for eight, and a baby grand piano.

The defining style factor is the very traditional dark cream/teal tiles - I don't love them but they are a traditional feature, very typical of the region so I want to keep them. There is also a huge granite fireplace with a woodburner; this has been sandblasted back to the original stone.

Would love some thoughts on colours to introduce - the walls are going the be Fired Earth White Mulberry, and the only other item to work with is this purple armchair from Made. Also best layout for furniture etc.
