Truth #1: We can't all play the guitar like John Mayer.

Truth #2: We can't all afford to decorate our homes from floor to ceiling in Armani / Casa.

Truth #3: I sincerely regret quitting guitar lessons in 3rd grade.

Elle Decor presents a home tour of crooner John Mayer's sleek, sophisticated, understated SoHo apartment. It's worth checking out, if for no other reason than to see what happens when a guy makes all the decor decisions. Recipe for disaster? Not in this case.

While browsing the photos, I noticed the great-looking Ranya pendant chandelier by Armani / Casa hanging over Mr. Mayer's dining table. Deep orange fabric fits languidly over square ribs creating a look that's relaxing, organic, and vaguely Asian.

If you like the look, but don't like the Armani price tag, check out the Bento Collection from Troy Lighting. It's a pretty close match, with all the casual charm.

So, if the whole rock star thing doesn't work out for John Mayer, perhaps he has a future designing rockin' bachelor pads.
