Jakob Mizrahi has owned this house in Copenhagen for 10 years: I have made 1980s-inspired furniture for the last 10 odd years.

Therefore I have a house full of my own designs, plus some 1980s pieces I have collected through the years when you could get them sort of cheap. I became a self-employed furniture designer/builder five months ago, and am now selling my stuff to the whole world.

I live on my own, but I share a dog with my girlfriend.

As I said, I’ve pretty much made all my furniture plus recently painted and vinyl wrapped my entire house.

Describe your home’s style in five words or fewer: Unique, different, colourful.

What is your favorite room and why? Right now my living room/kitchen, which I’ve just painted and vinyl wrapped.

Any advice for creating a home you love? Be unique … please!!!!

Thanks, Jakob!
