A glass panel tinted in a dark brown hue is hung in front of a window at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase, obscuring a less-than-ideal view. Two squares were left without paint to allow the natural light into the kitchen. As day turns to the night, the squares come to match the painted parts of the glass.

Alex Ray, of Five Senses Art Consultancy, was inspired to illustrate a move away from technology back to the basics of communication through an installation of hand-cast bronze letters and ancient symbols, as seen at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014. An overhead view from the staircase shows the letters tumbling down a white wall where dark brown hardwood floors are accented by a yellow carpet runner.
