We have a similarly small living/dining space and we've tried many things, ultimately getting rid of all unnecessary furniture (small cabinet, bookshelves, coffee table etc), keeping our 42" round table close to the kitchen area (dining/prep/desk/project space) with four fairly comfortable (upholstered seat) dining chairs that can be flipped around to face the couch on the opposite wall when we have company. We also have a side table and a fairly comfy arm chair in the space. Our table has a leaf and we have two folding chairs that we use for dinner for six. After a lot of trial and error it's pretty functional.

A good rule of thumb is to keep features the same color unless you want to highlight them. Personally I would go with the same color as the walls. If you do decide on a contrasting color, consider white with a simple white pull-down shade to brighten and streamline the window boxes. And, totally unsolicited, think about investing in some lighting (new ceiling fixtures aren't that hard to install and don't take precious floor space). Dark walls plus a small city apartment add up to an urban cave.
