Breakdown of a scene 6 from Archinteriors vol. 45.

Today I'm gonna show you some details from the Scandinavian Kitchen and leisure room scene that comes with Archinteriors vol. 45, made by Kamil Kuklo from Evermotion. It is a bright and cosy interior, but there is more than a kitchen in this scene. We modeled additional interior and a terrace and placed some greenery outside.

Ceiling with UVW Map modifier. We used box mapping for this element - it's fast and it works flawlessly with such simple shapes as this one.

Windows with blinds. As you can see on the final render, we have some rainy day outside the window, so we placed some droplets and made our windows wet.

Post-production wasn't complicated - we added high pass filter to sharpen the image, then we made slight levels adjustment (settings above), vignette and refraction / reflection passes. We also added specular pass.

On top of that we slightly modified the curves to increase contrast and placed lighting layer on top (60% screen mode).
