What the Brady Bunch Home Would Look Like in 2017

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

Kate Hollowell

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.

“We didn’t add any square footage, but we were moving walls. Because of the time this house was built in, there was a maid’s room and a tiny kitchen next to an oversized laundry room. We had to gut that and make a big kitchen, and that required putting in a beam, all of that kind of stuff. It was a big, big job, but for me, a huge part of it was preserving all of the elements that make it special and really capturing that charm and character. It still looks like the Brady Bunch house.”
