Yeah, that's pretty rad! Surely not a place I'm familiar with!

Having a tough time with the palette. Not sure whether to go for a more monochromatic piece, or put more colors in there. Maybe also too saturated. Any thoughts?

I agree. Number 3 benefits from the extra greens but still has the slightly chilly feel without the warmer brown.
