Instead of having completely white windows, you may want to add hints of things -- something -- existing outside of those windows.

Strange white windows a problem? No, excellent... Adds to the admosphere. Make it normal and one could just as well take a photograph from a interior magazine. And believe me we've got enough of those....

Maybe... But it doesn't look right. If the most left window is so bright, where does the shadow on the doors (don't know the word, where you put stuff) come from?

It just looks like a photo to me, the only thing i don't like that much is the floor, a hair too reflective imo. However fantastic work Simon.

ps On a side note real photographers usually shoot these kind of photos in a faked environment, they just rebuild the scene in a studio and take the photos, the bright white windows are simply ok.
