A bit of a disclaimer… Keep in mind that despite this long post, I still haven’t scratched the surface of the huge amount of clients, catalog items, and unlockables in this game, which prevents me from making the best possible designs in some cases. I also don’t have the motivation to put forth all of my designing effort into these little houses & yards in the same way that I do when I design a full-fledged town, like Citalune or Dafdilly. And the main way I take pictures is from the little montage that plays when you finish a project, so I’m pretty much at the mercy of the angles they give me during that montage! 😛 But enough excuses — onward!
a mix of antique pieces
A cute theme to work with! And fun to see Alice again, a resident of Citàlune. 🙂
A Toy Day celebration
Didn’t get a good picture of the exterior, whoops. The main room is simple enough (jingle series), but the back room was supposed to have a Santa-toy-workshop type feel except it’s super tiny!
an ancient bathhouse
This is a theme that appeals to me greatly, evidenced by the fact that I already have a room like this in my AC:NL town. I had fun with my choice of the acre that has lots of ponds, as if they’re ‘natural baths.’ And I loved how there was a rainbow in the exterior shots!
a Halloween-themed place
The main room is kinda witchy, with the door to her more festive-Halloween-style bedroom hidden behind a bookcase.
a perpetual birthday party
The fun thing about Bunnie’s house here is that since I have Bunnie’s amiibo card, and I have the game Amiibo Festival, I was able to put Bunnie’s cute little fairytale-style house that I designed into my board game town on Amiibo Festival! And I put her house right above a “fairytale park” I built in my board game town, so it looks quite fitting. It’s my favorite part of my board game town! ❤
a royal palace
Of course Elvis deserves something so grand! 🙂
a magnet for Santa
Came out looking like a better version of Curlos’ house, lol. The interior looks kind of busy from these angles, but I remember finding it quite cute in person when I was walking inside it.
an alpine-themed room
Nothing too fancy, but nice enough. Plus I got some good angles in the montage at the end 😛
a floral atmosphere
Aww, Bob, I loved designing for him because he’s one of my favorites and I’m a sucker for any sort of flowery theme! He is quite famous for his pink flowery shirt (that I alluded to in my design for his bedroom), so I think the theme is fitting enough for him. Though a lazy-cat-retreat with lots of food and cozy beds might’ve been even more fitting imo!
an autumnal atmosphere
I remember being disappointed by my options to work with for the interior, but I like how the outside turned out.
a nod to all things green
Well, I’d say she got what she wanted! Green’s my favorite color, but even I couldn’t stand this much green in my home. 😛
a sleep sanctuary
Sleeping when it’s raining outside is one of my favorite things in the world, so I picked an acre in which it was raining for Pancetti’s sleep sanctuary. But once I saw her getting poured on sleeping in the hammock outside, I was like “oh man, I messed this up…” xP
a zen-like washroom
Certainly wouldn’t have thought of a room like this myself!
a physicist’s office
I could’ve probably made this interesting if I tried hard enough, but I didn’t have the investment.
a mythical home
Julian, who I know and love from Citalune — how happy I was to design for you! And how happy I still am with this design, even though I’ve unlocked more fitting things for his home since then.
a nature sanctuary
Good luck cleaning that jungle floor of yours! xP *scratches head*
a cool coffee shop
I was pretty happy with this, seems like the sort of cool modern cafe she wanted.
a rustic ranch house
I think the inside came out cozy enough, but I was at a loss on how to make the exterior at all interesting…
a summery stronghold
Look forward to revisiting this later, maybe! The main idea that occurred to me at the time that I liked was to use gold-customized cabana furniture. Fun fact: Soleil is the name I wish I had given Lyra in Citalune, looking back.
a delightfully dotted room
I’m not opposed to cutesy things, but this is too cute even for me… I feel like this is just the sort of thing you have to design for Chrissy, though, if you want to stay true to her love of polka dots and pink.
a colorful toy box
Nothing groundbreaking, but fun! Felt the need to make his house the box-like shape to match his request for a toy box 😛
a relaxing island getaway
Wow, I gave myself such little outdoor space to work with by picking that acre! I like the inside well enough, though.
a fiery hangout
I love Phoebe, so I hope I did this beautiful rainbow phoenix’s fiery wishes justice. ❤
an exotic resort
I had fun interjecting some of what I perceive to be Pekoe’s personality into the design, like with the colorful flowers and pink bedspread.
an apple-inspired room
Not really happy with this, I’ll definitely want to go back to it.
a professional kitchen
I didn’t get a lot of great angles for displaying the interior, but maybe you get the idea? Edit: Ack, I see that one of the chairs is facing the wrong way!
a noble living space
Very happy with what I did for Colton’s house so far! I feel like I have a good idea for what his tastes are (elegance, grandeur, likes fashion & music) from having him so long in my AC:NL town.
a frozen world to play in
I feel like this is a little too austere for what she wanted (a frozen world to play in), but I like it at least! >_>
a winter wonderland
Two wintry requests in a row! Not much to say, it’s cute, like it well enough.
a mermaid’s life
I love the elegance of the back room even though it’s small! And I feel like I could’ve made a much better exterior design if I had more flowers unlocked
a mushroom manor
I liked this house a lot until someone I showed irl said it reminded them of something from the Smurfs, lol. Now I want to re-do it 😛
a farming homestead
I would’ve preferred to make the interior look like a farmhouse, not an additional farming area, but I was pretty much forced to because of the required items.
a place with good vibes
I wasnt too into this design, but sometimes you just have to throw something together to move on to a project you like better! 🙂
