Living Room: Background

Today  I worked on some background elements.

The challenge here is trying to keep the background elements accurate to their respective values and colors while at the same time keeping them in the background. That is not making the value to light, the chroma too bright or the edges too sharp to draw too much attention to them.

I think the one white box I painted will have to come down in value a bit, but other than that I’m happy with the other items.
