Introduce yourself, where do you come from
and what do you do for a living?

My name is Nora and I live with my family in Lower Austria. Professionally, I've changed a lot in the last few years, originally
 I was an elementary school teacher, then I changed to a Shiatsu

practitioner, now I’m in a completely different profession and earn my money as an independent photographer.

What are you most proud of to have achieved in life? 

I think the step into self-employment was my greatest professional success. If you have a relatively secure job then this step must be well-considered. Just because of my husband, who always supports me in business matters and is always by my side, I dared it and never regretted this step.

What's your favourite thing about living in Buchbach? 

I moved to this little village in 2004 and I immediately liked the location. I come from a very flat area and that is why I enjoy these hills and the small mountains around me. We are surrounded by the forest and live at 600 meters above sea level, which means that we have a lot of snow in the winter.

How has Buchbach changed over the years? 

Not at all. Really, I have the feeling that nothing essential changes here. Not even the people who live here, because there are hardly building any new houses here.

In your opinion, what makes a house a home? How did you make your house a home? 

Being at home is the most important thing to me - I don’t like to spend money on holidays or other expensive things, because I prefer to change something in the house. We also constantly change there something. My house is seasonally decorated with natural materials and new pillow colors, flowers and many more. Also candles can bring the coziness and do not forget: it is a place to live. My children, my husband and I live here. We have 2 cats and a dog and we all feel well here.

What was the last gift you gave someone? 

My son turned 14 on the 24th of November and he wanted a watch. I think that was the last gift I bought.

What's your favourite room in your home?

Clearly the open and very large kitchen that merges into a living and dining room. The whole room has a lot of windows, which allow us to see the garden and the forest or the mountains. 

How do you spend an average Friday night? 

That depends. When the kids are home, we make ourselves comfortable with pizza in front of the TV or we do something else. In the Christmas season, we go to the Christmas markets and in the summer we like to meet with friends for barbecues.

What's the advantage of getting a slipcover for your sofa? 

That you can choose the shape, color and fabric on your own. I am very happy with the new cover. Not only because IKEA doesn’t offer a slipcover in this color, but because there is no cover in Snug Fit for this model. The covers give the living room a whole new look.

Which advice will you give to a person who wants to buy a new slipcover from Comfort Works? 

I would always give the tip to think well what is your style, before ordering a sofa cover. If you are somebody who doesn’t change the look too often - well - then you can have the courage and, for example, choose a colorful cover. If you are like me and you change constantly the colours, then you should pick a neutral sofa cover and use different coloured pillows or carpets.
