Hi again, Fletch,
Thanks for the rug suggestion --will explore it.
Back to the lighting, issues that still need adjusting (again, I would prefer to pay someone than ask for free help, but if you're offering . . .

-The lamp base still looks white rather than wood tone.
-The curtain panels are too transluscent even with "thick curtains". I made the window narrower to reduce the effect, but would prefer no light shine through them.
- Wondering where the lighting artifacts on the back wall are coming from (see image)
- I will likely remove the spotlight illuminating the painting because I don't want subjects fixating on anything in particular in the scene. Will likely go back to a soft spotlight from a distance or something. I would like some plug-n-play fixtures, so I signed up for Pro, but I can't see how to access the collection that I saw somewhere in this forum. Where to get lights without the problems of the previous fixtures?
Also wondering when I finish this interior and go on to the next versions, will the material properties from Twilight remain intact when I change Sketchup materials on floor, furnishings, etc.? I suspect the answer is that if I change the color of the Sketchup material without changing the material, they will remain the same. If I change material, e.g., a lighter floor, I will need to do them again. Correct?
