Live with it for a year to see what comes up, where the sun goes round, where there's shade, what kind of soil you have and so on. Keep on top of weeding and dead-heading and take lots of photos and notes to remind you of what is where, what needs to be moved or got rid of and how you'd like to improve it for your needs.
Think about what you'd like - seating/eating/entertaining areas, kids' play area, flowers for cutting, climbers, perfume, veggies, herbs, work area for potting and propagating, compost corner and make a list.
Then you can plan it and change it to your needs and order plants or seeds to change the palette to your taste.
