A Bold and Garish Craze Sets an Elegant and Eclectic Stage

Simone Carillo’s breeziness belies her bravado—after all, being an early adopter of passing fancies is not for the faint of heart. By definition, crazes are bold, sometimes even garish. As fashion industry insiders—Simone and her husband, David, own a clothing manufacturing company called Trend Request—the Carillos are quite cozy with the avant-garde. “We always say, ‘Let’s do whatever the Europeans are doing,’” says David. “You can’t go wrong if you take their lead. They’re always stylish.” By balancing out flamboyance with elegance, the couple enlivened their 1923 Spanish colonial to create a delightful, welcoming, and ever-so-eclectic home.
