Help me decorate my living room! Feeling overwhelmed...

Hello Houzzers, hope you can help. Lurked on here for ages, but never posted before.

I finished my house renovation earlier in the year, and was really looking forward to decorating, as I normally love it. But I’ve done nothing, and just felt a bit overwhelmed. Can you help me get started on my living room?

The house is a thirties terrace, the renovation has made it quite contemporary. I wanted to live in it before I chose colours, so at the moment it’s very white and clinical. Normally I love colour and texture and vintage stuff. I also love bargains!

Our old place was a small Victorian flat, so some of our furniture is too small or just doesn’t go in the new place.

What would you do with this room?

It’s north facing. I was thinking about decorating in F&B ammonite, or in a muted pale pinky shade - maybe Crown Chateau. The linked room will probably be F&B Stiffkey blue.

The Ercol is mine but will probably get recovered. Both sofas are inherited and need to be replaced. Should I go for a low slung, slouchy contemporary chaise sofa, or something more vintagey? Will add some options in comments...

Thanks in advance,
