Behrs starts every day with warm lemon water and honey.
“I knew the moment I walked through the door that this was my house,” says Beth Behrs, who purchased the Los Angeles home—her first—with her boyfriend, actor Michael Gladis, on the heels of joining her popular show, 2 Broke Girls, in 2011. “The kitchen in particular was like my dream vision come to reality: the chalkboard wall, the rack for copper pots, the open shelving.” The combined open kitchen and dining room is ideal for the couple’s penchant for throwing dinner parties for friends. Guests can serve themselves from the double range in the kitchen, then move through to the dining room’s large wooden table with oversized chairs, or venture into the tree-filled backyard for some fresh air.
