Default Optimal speaker placement in un-conventional layout

Hi

Wondering about optimal rear speaker placement for my lounge which I'm redesigning. I will either do 5.1 or 5.1.4 layout. See attached photos. The TV can swing off the wall to be more centered if watching a movie late at night. I was thinking of putting inwall speakers for the fronts with integrated tweeter in the center, the wall cavities are 90mm deep. For the rears depending on placement I will use a similar in wall speaker or I will use something like the kef eggs (which I already have lying around).

Q: Should the rear right speaker be blue or yellow (or ceiling directly above).

If I wall mount the RR speaker inside the wall behind me it's a bit of a squeeze under the window, and is slightly below my ear height (and quite close), but I could always just use an egg speaker instead. If I mount to the right of me, then it's easier to have it inside the wall. The other option is to mount on ceiling directly above me.

Q: Should the rear left speaker be orange or green (or ceiling directly above).

For the rear left speaker I can mount on the side quite far away, however delay can be improved by using the room correction on the amp. Otherwise I can mount on the wall directly behind the couch, either inwall or as an egg on a bracket.

Also, I'm undecided about subwoofers, I have 4x 15" drivers that I was gonna do 2x dual opposed sealed boxes in the ceiling, but I'm not sure if I'm still going that route.
