Learn how production designer Judy Becker injected authentic ‘70s style into American Hustle, directed by David O. Russell and starring Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale.
Production designer Judy Becker says Sydney’s (played by Amy Adams) apartment was one of her favorite sets from the film. “It’s sexy – the apartment of a woman who would look cool at Studio 54,” she says. Inspired by "White Brick" apartment buildings on Manhattan's Upper East Side popular among single women in the ‘70s and ‘80s, the set was minimal and stylish with vintage parquet floor tiles and neutral grasscloth walls.
