Hunter, of Hunters First Home House Tour, sent us in a good question: I've been living in my house a year and I'm ready to do some updating in the living room. I was hoping to get some feedback from the Apartment Therapists …

1. Fireplace: I would like to replace the fireplace tiles with something more modern? Should I go with a dark tile to contrast the mantle? Or a lighter tile? Glass? Subway?

2. Furniture: The furniture came with the house, so I am looking to replace to the sofa and 2 chairs. Any suggestions? Style? Color?
Material?

3. Throw Pillows: I'm looking for something with color and maybe really graphic?

4. Rug: I've ordered samples from Flor.com. Darker rug? Or lighter rug? Color?
