Outside of Shai's room - she is located in one of the less well maintained wings of the palace, but I still wanted it to show its former glory.

I noticed that the color scheme changes inside and outside Shai's door (even before she Forges it).  What do you suppose is the rationale for that?

Good catch! Half of it is probably the light, as I painted the "shabby" room in cold lighting, and the other half is ... I could make up something like "they wouldn't design every room exactly the same style, even in the same wing, because that would be boring". But in truth you really just caught me here, I designed Shai's rooms first, and the corridors second, without thinking it through well enough - I was more focused on making Shai's wing look different from Ashravan's. So thanks for pointing that out - some visual anchor would have been really important here (for the "before" version at least)! With the emperor's quarters I actually did just that - make them coherent. Oops. :)

Maybe the palace gets remodeled every time a faction rises to power?  And Shai's room was overlooked because before it's literally the worst guest room the palace has on offer, so the purple-ish coloring is a remnant of whichever faction was in power 3 or 4 emperors ago?

That would be a possibility, yes :)
