Svanette User Profile

My name Svanette, what my mother gave me, has the meaning "little swan". I guess it suits me well; I'm a designer and love to dress people and play with colours and shapes to present people in the best light. It’s a wonderful work, we have a great time and a lot of fun together!

My 4 grown up kids left home and so I found pleasure hosting guests from all over the world in my beloved old house from the 1920th.

In the ground floor of my flowerpot coloured old house I run a little studio with a hat shop, where I create hats and dresses for my customers.
My guests receive a 10% rebate on head wear. I have a very kind regular guest, she's visiting an anthroposophic medical seminar every year and during her one week stay I always become an order from her to create some special personal clothes and hats for her. She loves entering my studio by night to get all the attention and the possibility to get some very individual clothes and fashionable hats for the next season.

I love to create a cosy atmosphere in my surrounding with a lot of little beautiful details and decorations, to let my guests feel welcome in my guesthouse. I like to offer good, mostly biologic food in my lovely kitchen where we are sometimes sitting together and share our philosophies.

If you like my way of hosting my guests and create a space with a warm hearty home flair I would be happy if you share your satisfaction with others and write a little feedback in the reviews. Thank you for your attention and your kind interest to my profile. Svanette
