Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent work together and are married to each other—they’re an example of some very impressive teamwork, both at home and on set.

Nate and Jeremiah, two of the most popular interior designers in the world, and hosts of TLC’s Nate and Jeremiah by Design, which just finished season two, joined Arianna Huffington on The Thrive Global Podcast, in partnership with iHeartRadio and Sleep Number, to talk about their family, and the many intersections between their work and personal lives.

Berkus opened up to Huffington about how the couple manages to work together. Berkus told Huffington that he and Brent thrive by remembering the show’s greater purpose, even on the days where the two, according to Berkus, “can’t stand the sight of one another.” Still, even on the toughest days, “We’re aligned on why we’re doing the show. We’re doing it because we both believe that people deserve to live really well,” he says.

“We’re both so invested emotionally,” Brent adds. “We care about the people that we’re doing the work for, so we take on the weight of that a lot. But we’ve learned a lot about each other. We learned a lot about how to communicate, and more importantly, how not to communicate… The truth is at the end of the day, we love working together. We love spending time together and we love creating things together. “We have a blast with it.”

With two beautiful children and skyrocketing careers, Berkus and Jeremiah are thriving together, and the two have a few other tricks up their sleeves when it comes to maintaining a successful partnership.
