Moved into bfs place and will get new modern furniture but I need help deciding what to do about the color for the accent wall for the fireplace, what to do about the layout so I can comfortably watch tv (TV and fireplace are on different walls - tv is an expensive built in). please help!

If you're keeping that rug, you can paint the accent wall (fireplace wall?) the same red. For furniture placement, not sure if there's enough space but try putting the couch facing the tv with a console table behind it (with that silver lamp on it) and the two chairs near the fireplace for a reading area. I don't think you need two sidetables given the space.

Looks like the place already has new modern furniture and the beige wing chair looks perfect for watching TV. The only thing I would do here is hang a large modern canvas over the fireplace, then add some toss pillows that echo the colors in the painting.

The fireplace wall already looks like it is darker. If that's just an illusion, then I would probably try to match the darkest gold/tan in the rug if I were determined to paint it. The room looks really beautiful as it is.

Hi, I'd flip the arrangement of furniture. There are too many chairs on the one side because of the dining room. Put the couch where the chairs are separating the dining area from the living space. Paint the fireplace wall a deep beige / taupe color. An interesting mirror would look great above mantel.
