Definately a bay tree you have, shame you dont like it as it looks nice & healthy (maybe a bit overgrown). The Yukkas look well established and great as architectural plants. Looks like a rose and some bamboo. Personally, I would stick to a eastern theme with some Lilies in pots, maybe a peony, hostas, you could add some patio roses in pots, some artemesia for varigated colour, lavender and some fuschia.
The butler sink in your picture is great for planting up as a herb garden
