We put a city landscape as a light color of the dome material.

VraySun is placed quite high, because it's a noon scene with hard light, not a romantic one.

We also used VrayLight (dome) as an additional light.

As you can see, interior is much bigger than on final image. There is a big open space behind the camera, filled with desks, chairs, cabinets, etc. You can definetely make more of interesting shots using only contents of this scene.

Walls (isolated view).

 

Click on image to enlarge nr_AI40S11_0040_Layer_14_481.jpg

Walls material is a part of Multi / Sub-Object Material. It's quite usual white plaster material with a small amount of reflection glossines map and V-Ray Dirt.

Walls material - V-Ray dirt settings.

Another submaterial is a shader put on a brick wall that is visible throught the window. Normally we would use just some brick house image, but this wall was meant to be placed very close to the window, so we couldn't fake it with bitmap. We created 3d model of building elevation and assigned a brickwall material to it.

Square mesh.

Square mesh material. We used gradient ramp maps for bump map and diffuse slots.

Square mesh material - VrayDirt map settings.

We have a glass wall and door just in front of a camera. Glass wall has a print. It was made with a bitmap in a diffuse slot and inverted version of the same bitmap in refraction and refraction glossiness slot. this way we achieved a white (diffuse map) print that does not pass the light (refract map).

Chandelier mesh.

 

 

Click on image to enlarge nr_AI40S11_0014_Layer_40_506.jpg

Chandelier was made of eight similar elements. It looks sophisticated, but it is relative simple modeling task. You can use circles, distribute them using array, remove unwanted segments to achieve arcs, connect those arcs and extrude them, the last task would be scalling the ends of the element and copying it eight times.

Floor covering mesh.

 

Click on image to enlarge nr_AI40S11_0011_Layer_43_503.jpg

Floor covering material - it has four color variations, so we used Multi / Sub-Object material and assigned different sub-materials to different polygons.

 

Click on image to enlarge nr_AI40S11_0010_Layer_44_502.jpg

Floor covering material - color 1.

 

Click on image to enlarge nr_AI40S11_0009_Layer_45_501.jpg

Floor covering material - color 1, falloff map.

 

Click on image to enlarge nr_AI40S11_0008_Layer_46_500.jpg

Floor covering material - bump map is common for all color variations.

Raw render came out a little dark, so wee need to improve brightness and contrast in Photoshop.

Simple post-production - curves and levels for increasing the contrast.
