Make the bay window area in a single style with the room. If you wish, you can mark it out with the rug, make a podium in it or play it up using multilevel ceiling. Don’t use tall pieces of decor or furniture, blind screens and high plants as these elements make the area darker and smaller.

A great variant to design the bay window is to make a living area in it. Put a beautiful sofa or install a fireplace. If you wish to bring some coziness, use a nice shade and the rug.
