For Wallace's apartment twenty years later the idea was to have it barren but bright. Some what of a cartoon look. To add color to the white wash without loosing color in the bright costumes I add yellow and golden light.
The Birthday Present
 
The final scene is a talk show so we painted a backdrop of New York. For lighting I took out the yellow and gold and add some unfiltered light coming straight on trying to give it that flat TV studio look.
