Decorating & Furniture/Curtain style & colour help


I am onto the 'choosing curtains' stage in decorating our living room and need help.  The room has yellowy/cream walls with white window frames, dark brown furniture (tables & sofas) and an aubergine/purple carpet.  This is a longish room, one end has a bay window & the other is french doors (with little windows either side.  What colour could I choose so that the room looks big but without making it darker (especially as the furniture is dark).  I kind of want it to look fresh.  Also, should I choose a pattern on the curtain..the rest of the room is block colours.  Hope you can help & thanks.
