The color looks good. I'd watch the highlights as they look just a little bright to me - the details in the door are getting lost in a few places.

The dog is a cutie - I'd skip the hat though :)

Here's a suggestion of what it should look like. Using the outlines from earlier, I made a layer with a plain brown (as in your floor) and some slightly darker lines for tiles using the outline grid

I found a picture online of vinyl floor tiles and used a 4x4 square from that to make a layer to borrow texture for the plain floor. I sized and skewed it to match the perspective on the floor, and used gaussian blur to make the tile less sharp to match the image (which is blurry)



I then made a new empty layer above the floor and used the healing brush to apply the texture to the floor. I did it in chunks and left some areas blank. Blurred the result a little and added some noise. It's not perfect, but you get the idea.

I cloned the chair legs (again, quick and dirty), painted in the table base and then added a layer to put some shadows onto the floor (a layer set to multiply blend mode where you paint with a very soft edged pale gray brush. Paint and then Blur until you're happy with the brush. Darker gray to get darker shadows.

I don't think you're all that far off :)

I swear I'm going to be in double digits for the WIP versions!! But here's another update, incorporating the latest suggestions



I think this is better - anything obviously less good than before?

I sent this next one back to Bambi to see if she's happy with it. Thanks everyone for the assistance.
