The Team Transforms Thea’s Condo Into a Pet-Friendly Paradise

Lisa Kudrow’s cousin, Thea, was overdue for some good news. After both of Thea's parents passed away suddenly, Lisa wanted to make sure Thea knew she was loved. Renovating her outdated condo was the perfect gift. “Thea has spent the last few years navigating loss," said Lisa. "She needs a soft place to land. She loves her home. It has so much light, but it needs some updates." Thea channeled her grief in meaningful ways. Namely by caring for abused shelter pets. "She’ll want her home to be pet-friendly,” Lisa added. “She needs a functional space that’s safe and comfortable for the pets she loves.” Together, with Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott, Lisa sets out to remodel her cousin’s living room, dining room and outdoor patio.

The bros incorporated the most sentimental art pieces into the redesigned living room, including sheet music signed by Thea’s dad, the former conductor of the Oakland Symphonic Orchestra. The updated fireplace features a smaller hearth and a roman clay finish. A new mantle is installed over the fireplace. Luxury vinyl flooring (perfect for pets) replaces the dated tile throughout the living room.
