In this version I wanted to change colors on furniture. I feel that Photoshop helps by doing these so that not only you dont have to render it by hand but this gives you an easier way of doing it.

Photoshop Experiment

Photoshop editing is really helpful. I decided to try to keep all the regular colors but adding a little more shadow with the burner. I also find it helpful to brighten all the colors.
