Re: Restoration Hardware Catalog look

Just do one thing at the time. I'd:

1.remove things like the grill
2.clean up that dirty looking wall
3.even out the floor lighting
4.mask what needs to be and adjust the tones to match samples

Sure, lighting, arrangement and the camera/angle are not as perfect as the samples, but they can look reasonably close if we accept those compromises.

P.S. That is one freaky looking view out the window? Portions of it really look pasted on.

Klev started the criticism of "floor lighting" and it is a bogus criticism. When a window or open door is opposite the camera, the light from it naturally reflects off a wooden floor. If the reflection were so hot that it clipped the highlights, then it might need fixing. Otherwise, it isn't a flaw and doesn't require any editing.

See the target images posted by the OP. Both illustrate this natural phenomenon of light reflecting off a semi-glossy surface.

I was referring to these areas. First we fix, then color grade.
