This is going in the right direction indeed! Much, much better. The 
posters (or something else, like modern paintings and such) are an 
essential element addition.

I think that you could improve on the spilled champagne. It has a 
mercury-look now, especially through the edges which could/should be 
thinner/less pronounced. The colour could be more transparent/reflective?
