# Is this the birth of your little Mila that you had the click to open the shop? How did you choose this nice name?
Yes indeed during my pregnancy I was looking for pretty decorative accessories for my daughter's room. I was not fully satisfied with the traditional offer of traditional decoration.
We chose Mila because it's a sweet and singing name with multiple origins. It means in Slavic "beloved of the people", in German "generous" or in Spanish "miracle".
All these meanings seduced us and gave meaning to our choice.
# What did you do before?
I was a business lawyer for 10 years. As I was bored in business I decided in 2014 to change my life. Quite naturally, I started thinking about a new project during my maternity leave while I was preparing my daughter's room. During my research, I discovered nuggets, the idea of my concept store was born!
# Show us the shop, what can we find?
The Pop up of Stella is an interior decoration and lifestyle shop located in Bécon, in Courbevoie (92). I propose at the same time postcards, candles, small books for children, mirrors, vegetation, gifts of birth, dishes.
I am attentive to the provenance and methods of making objects that I select. The red thread of my selection: on the one hand, the achievements of French and foreign designers who manufacture ...
Some brands in store: Rose in April, Buddy and Bear, April Eleven, KG design, Pixistuff, Toucan Dodo, House of Rym, Serax, Fine little day ...
# You also manage an online store, how are your days organized?
Yes recently, I put online a part of my shop selection. I do not really have a standard day. I juggle a lot depending on emergencies, orders ... I have to be flexible to the maximum. It is not always easy to do everything alone.

# Future projects?
(new brands, new local, new ads etc ...) I have lots of ideas that swarm in my head. I do not like working in his corner. My desire to collaborate and share with other inspiring entrepreneurs is strong. That's why I organized at the end of 2017 a designer fair near Paris. I dream of building partnerships and creating an interesting local ecosystem. We can be complementary to the service of a complete proximity offer.
Ideas and projects, I do not miss it! I would like to sell a little more furniture and why not create decorative objects and furniture in own brand. I've never felt as good as since I started
