I decided to focus on a corner with an armchair and window. I liked the negative space and light. This was my sketch from the previous exercise.
I looked at the area from a few angles using landscape and portrait. I liked the first sketch below best because it seemed the most dynamic and balanced.
In retrospect I could probably have tried more angles, however, I felt the first sketch was quite strong and each subsequent sketch was weaker so I decided to go with the arrangement I liked.
