Home Away From Home : Ann Pyne

This month in Elle Decor, Ann Pyne, head of one of America’s oldest and most distinguished design firms, gives old-school decorating a surprising new relevance. Our favorite room is by far the Formal Living Room with the draped curtains, chandelier, and the art deco mirror! When can we move in?

Home Away From Home : John Mayer

Reminiscing at the older spread of Elle Decor where Mr. John Mayer lets us take a look in his 2,500-square-foot apartment in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood. “If my apartment could make me feel the way I do in Mr. Armani’s suits, life would be really wonderful.” Mayer recalls thinking when he bought his SoHo spread. With that the Armani/Casa design team agreed to help. “I wanted to create a sophisticated environment for John,” the fashion icon says, “one that will bring as much pleasure to him as his music brings to us.”
