Armani Casa

Elle Decor and John Mayer hosted a party at Armani Casa this past Tuesday night that was packed with a very stylish crowd and a lot of handsome Italian men. Why American men can’t look that good in a suit is beyond me but I digress. The chicest person in the room was actually the Interior Design Director of Armani Casa, Joy Moyler! I couldn’t decide if I wanted to steal her entire outfit or create a Habitually Chic award in her honor! Joy designed John Mayer’s new apartment and we agreed that bachelors make the best clients! They agree with pretty much everything you suggest and are always so appreciative. The only problem with John’s project was that he was always traveling so that meant a lot of emails and strangely timed phone calls but it looks like it was worth it as you can see in the September 2009 issue of Elle Decor.

Joy was kind enough to introduce me to John who said he couldn’t be happier in his new apartment. Since he does travel so much, he wanted to create a more “zen” home where he would have five pairs of black pants, five black shirts, five white tees, etc. I had to joke with him about how long that could last since New York makes you want to collect things and we agreed that he might need to get a storage space. Then I was elbowed out of the way by two blond girls who wanted to have their photo taken with him and that was the end of that conversation.

The party was packed so luckily, I had stopped into Armani Casa last week to check out their wares and take some photos. It is clearly a store where fashion and design collide with very chic results. Enjoy!

    Heather – oh to have been you for the night. Damn those two blonde girls, you had a good conversation going on.

    Would love to snag that Armani tea set.

    Have a great weekend. I’d be still walking on air!

    How glamorous it all sounds! Glad you got to meet John despite the pushy fans. Girls can be so silly. Love the Armani Casa line—all too chic.

    I’m so sad I missed this event… I love the simplistic yet elegant aestetic of Armani Casa.

    It looks like you had a great time.

    Sounds like a fun night. I love the Armani Casa line – probably the only fashion company in my eyes that has moved over to interiors with great success. Its so consistent with the Armani vision, yet so new each collection. So beautiful.

    I was also there that evening, but my perspective was different on the party. And although I am blond, I assure you I was NOT the one who elbowed you away, I was introduced by his pr handler 🙂

    Please see my perspective at
