Renaissance Home

Los Angeles, CA

Food blogger and commercial director Claire Thomas honors this Brentwood home’s heartwarming history.

Los Angeles Renaissance woman Claire Thomas is not only the founder of popular food blog The Kitchy Kitchen and cofounder of Sweet Laurel Bakery, but also works as a food stylist, personal chef, editorial photographer, and commercial director. In some ways, it seems inevitable: she’d worked for a production company on weekends and school breaks since the age of 12.

“I grew up surrounded by people who occupied that strange space where art and commerce meets,” says Thomas. “Everyone was incredibly creative, and the focus was always on ‘the work’ that told a story in a beautiful way.”
