The 12 hour store – the iZettle stunt that made small businesses shine 

This post may not be related to interior design, but when I heard about this event I had to share. I am a big proponent of supporting small businesses - especially when my husband is about to embark on his own. A company called iZettle builds game-changing payment services and apps with the mission to make it easier to run a small business (ie. you can run your business on a tablet or smartphone and take card payments wherever you are). This company did something pretty remarkable last month. During six days in October, to show that iZettle is all about supporting small businesses and helping them take on the fight against domination by big brands, they did something no company has ever done before - they invited six of Britain's smallest businesses to open up their very own flagship store on Britain’s greatest shopping street (Oxford) - for 12 hours each.

This is what happened.

Reader's home - Luisa's flat in Germany 

I have a darling little flat to share with you today. It is Luisa's recently finished flat in an art nouveau house in the heard of the city of Görlitz (the most eastern city of Germany on the border to Poland). The architecture in this area is breathtaking. I first saw the flat in May this year when I found a new job in Görlitz and I took on the adventure of renovating it on my own. It was in a horrible state when I first saw it but I loved the old floor boards in the living room and the stucco in the kitchen. The feeling of the history in the rooms, the old doors and windows and the spacious rooms are so great. I also love old furniture and collected a lot of it over the years. I knew this would turn out great.

Luisa worked VERY hard transforming her flat. She sent some before photos to show just how hard...
