When he isn’t working alongside his husband, Jeremiah is busy with his own design firm Jeremiah Brent Design which he established in 2011.

His interior design company is based in Los Angeles and New York City and according to his website, “has transformed countless homes, restaurants, and public spaces across coasts”.

But around a decade ago, it was a very different story for Jeremiah as he couldn’t even afford his own furniture.

Opening up exclusively to Express.co.uk about how he got started, Jeremiah explained: “You know what I didn’t know it [interior design] was a job, like a real job.

“When I look back, there was obviously the arch of my creativity and when I was young, I used to go to open homes with my mother and I used to imagine how I could make the space better and how people would live in it.

“And it wasn’t until I was in my 20s that I started making furniture as I couldn’t afford to buy it.”

“I started to sell it, a couple of people then wanted living rooms and that turned into restaurants and nightclubs and I built a business out of it.”

He didn’t always have a clear idea of what he wanted to do for a career though.

Jeremiah said: “I did everything, I thought I was going to be in marketing, then I thought advertising then I thought I was going to be an architect and then I was like ‘you know what, let me just be a soap star!’.

“You name it like everybody I had no idea what I wanted to do but I was never afraid to fail because I was failing on my own terms and that had always been very important to me and still is.”

Jeremiah added: “But my connection to design has always been rooted in stories and creating these moments in a home where I could see people living in them.

“So that’s the part that’s been really interesting, it was never really an algorithm for something like ‘Yes, that sofa goes there and this must happen there’, it’s always rooted in story.”

Say I Do is available to watch on Netflix.
