The Gazette hunts high and low each week to bring you news of the most interesting and unusual new businesses in Hackney. This week we speak to a woman who will tidy your mess up for you if you pay her.

You’re busy, you’re tired, you’ll sort out the mess tomorrow. For those that need a helping hand in tidying up their homes, Johanna Valeur may be a very useful person to know.

The “interior design stylist, organiser and declutterer” is the founder of Your Space in Mind – which deals in sorting out people’s homes.

“I used to do it for friends and they spotted I had a talent for it,” said Johanna, a Parisian living in Stoke Newington. “It’s for people who maybe think: ‘God, I really need to sort this room out,’ but can’t face it, or people moving home.”

Johanna’s company is even accredited by the Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers, or the APDO to you and me.

Next time you feel like having a clean out, get in touch via her website.
