Very interesting thread.
I agree with the trend of not using cheap lenses gimmick with high class projects (otherwise I love the cheap lenses tricks like lens flares, chromatic aberrations, vignette , vignette blurs, etc.).
The villa here is cool but there is a problem of spatial partitioning. Having a huge space, looks like the furniture was dispersed here and there, with the same mood everywhere in the living room.
Perhaps you could try seclusion thanks to the floor variation (rugs, carpets, colors, floorheight variations) plus lighting differenciation (no downlights, more lamps on feet).
The exterior pool shots by night are indeed very nice but lacks the warmth of the interior lights and perhaps light on vegetation to create a rich mood (and a girl with nothing on).
