I think the image would benefit from some more interesting lighting. Maybe turn on the floorlamp?

The lamp is on, I must look at another way of raising that impact there. Looking at it in the light of day it does not look as good.

Hi Mike, I think the concept of the image is on the money :thumb: I do think the grungy floor has merit.
Also the couch looks like it is "into the ground" and think a single book or magazine on the floor near the couch could work sort of like a person has just moved out of shot, tells a little bit of a story. Hope you do go further with it.

Thanks mate, I have to admit to not being 100% at the moment and some of the prescribed chemicals may mean I am not so critical as I should be, taking the points on board and will have another run at it in a bit.

I very much appreciate the comments folks.

To get the lamp light looking good start with a normal light intensity for that kind of lamp and turn off all other lights including sun and sky. Then correct the camera exposure and other settings until it looks correct and then if you want some ambient light turn sky and sun on but at a very low intensity not to blow the image out.

Does anyone know of a repository where I can find some good seamless distressed floorboard textures please. Thanks.

At Euro 12 for a year's access to the hi res versions, Sketchup Texture Club is great value.

Try Architecture/Wood Planks/Old wood boards for the bare floorboards. (Sketchup Texture Club)

Mike they are floorboards or most of them are anyway. The site is italian and the english
nomenclature is dodgy sometimes .

Hope you keep going with that render. I really like the overall style and like the lighting as it is. the use of a lot of white and strong colour keeps it "young and sylish and inline with the "grunge" sub culture style :thumbd:

I really like the glass top table and lamp. It gels with the sofa and appears far more stylish than the book lamp in the original render. Floor looking good also, but what have you done to that beautiful and intriguing hole in the wall? I used to pass an old and dilapidated farm building every day. It too had a hole, lower down and with a rusty wire grill. For some, weird, reason I looked forward to seeing that hole and was disappointed if my view was blocked by traffic. It had character, charm and interest. It was a sad day when the owner renovated the building and the hole was gone. Same with the feature in your wall!

Ta mate, blame the contractor, I do. Not gone just hidden for this render. Not sure how to make a feature of it, possibly an air vent with a conical or top hat grill.
