What the Brady Bunch Home Would Look Like in 2017

This L.A. home is the perfect embodiment of vintage California style.

When somebody mentions to us that their home resembles the Brady Bunch house (with a modern twist), we automatically envision a whole lot of wood, some exposed brick, and a majorly retro vibe. The somebody in this case is Claire Thomas, the founder of Kitchy Kitchen and co-founder of Sweet Laurel Bakery, and when we rolled up to her Sherman Oaks home one Wednesday afternoon, we realized she was spot-on with her description. Her home (which she completely redid with her husband) is a modern-day version of the Brady Bunch home without all the shag carpet because, uh, 2017.

Of course Thomas’ kitchen caught our eye right off the bat (it’s where she does all of her production)—it was so insanely bright and beautiful that we wanted to start cooking right then and there. But what really makes Thomas’ home special is all its quirky accents—from a reupholstered poker table to a fireplace with built-in planters (no, really), to a cobalt blue and hot pink bathroom, it felt like we were on a new adventure with every corner we turned. See it all for yourselves by clicking through the gallery below.

“I wanted to embrace all of the goofy aspects of [this house]. I’ve never gone into a home and felt a need to imprint my own point of view on it—I’ve never tried to turn a house into something it’s not. I let the house to be the thing to determine what the end result is. With this house, it has a sunken living room, wood paneling everywhere, that ridiculous fireplace that has a planter in it—I just wanted to keep and improve upon anything that was originally there.”
