The Nice Guys

This is getting boring

This Trippy Orange Wallpaper by Graham & Brown has become the laziest choice for a 1960's or 1970's set.  I have already commented on it in Mad Men and High Rise, but now that it has popped up in The Nice Guys, I'm off the bandwagon.

To make matters worse, Graham & Brown actually brag on their website that the wallpaper is featured in the sitcom, 2 Broke Girls, and include this picture: 

The Nice Guys crash a party

In the film, The Nice Guys (2016) (not recommending!), Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling crash a Porn King's party and it is a 70's delight. 

I thought this would be a Los Angeles location, but I was surprised to learn that this architectural novelty is in Atlanta, and owned by music producer Dallas Austin.  The house has infamously been rented to pop stars like Justin Bieber, Pink, Boyz II Men, Brandy, Monica, Lenny Kravitz, etc. It has been used in other films, like What To Expect When Your Expecting (can't say I remember it in that one). 

Check out Curbed Atlanta for many more images of the house.

It felt rude to write about such bonkers real estate without crediting the architect, but turns out the architect is a whole other story.....

Michael Czysy died this past May from cancer.  He was in his early 50s.  

After design school, his architecture career advanced swiftly, and he did projects like a W Hotel, homes for Lenny Kravitz and Cindy Crawford, etc.  But then, in his 40's, he decided he was done with architecture, and wanted to learn how to design racing motorcycles.  He was very successful.  His obituaries call him a Visionary Motorcycle Designer, and barely reference the architecture faze of his life.
