I don't like discouraging anyone who wants to buy a projector, as I think it's the best way to enjoy an immersive viewing experience in the home. On the other hand, I don't want to encourage someone to forge ahead with a projector purchase if they're not serious about trying to obtain a decent viewing experience. I'm sure you care about getting a nice picture in your room. I'm just not sure if you're ready to do what's necessary to get a nice picture for a projector.
Your quote "As is very evident from the photograph, my living room is very bright.", makes me think you just want to keep the room as is, and try to project in this bright room. If that is the case, then I'll have to agree with the other posters and advise you get a large screen LCD television. If that's not the case, then you have some work to do to make this room projector friendly.
I'm not saying you have to turn your living room into a dedicated dark room home theater, but you must cut down on the amount of light entering your room, and the amount of light that will reflect off the walls and ceiling to make a projection setup enjoyable.
However, if 90 inches is the size you want to project, you can get a nice 80 inch LCD for about the same money (or a little bit more) and save yourself all the hastle.
