Interview with Suzi

Today’s interview is with the lovely and very talented Suzi. Suzi is a design lover and world traveler who has traveled to some truly amazing places. She is also an incredibly talented sewer and designer who I truly envy for her skill in creating beautiful clothes. I really enjoyed getting to know more about Suzi, and was happy to learn some more about interior design and how to select well crafted clothing along the way. Enjoy meeting Suzi!

Who are you? What do you do, and where do you live?

My name is Zuzana, or Suzi as you’d like. I was born Czech, and am now living in Austria in a village very near to Vienna, and am married to an Austrian (for ages)!  I’ve lived in several countries across Europe because of my husband’s job in banking; the latest stay was for almost two years in Moscow.

Now we are back in Austria and I am trying to settle down again.

Grey glass side table in repertoire with Classicon. Also, our breakfast porcelain is designed by another big name of that era – professor Walter Gropius, a founder of the Bauhaus school.
