Read → Happy Home Designer Update#2: Starting to build up my clientele

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!

Alice

a mix of antique pieces

Alice's cottage

Alice's antique living room

Alice's antique living room

A cute theme to work with! And fun to see Alice again, a resident of Citàlune. 🙂

Curlos

A Toy Day celebration

Curlos's festive living room

Curlos's toy workshop

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!

Klaus

an ancient bathhouse

Klaus's bathhouse

Klaus's 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!

Tammy

a Halloween-themed place

Tammy's yard

Tammy's witchy room

Hidden door

Tammy's bedroom

The main room is kinda witchy, with the door to her more festive-Halloween-style bedroom hidden behind a bookcase.

Bunnie

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! ❤

Elvis

a royal palace

Of course Elvis deserves something so grand! 🙂

Daisy

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.

Willow

an alpine-themed room

Nothing too fancy, but nice enough. Plus I got some good angles in the montage at the end 😛

Bob

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!

Deirdre

an autumnal atmosphere

I remember being disappointed by my options to work with for the interior, but I like how the outside turned out.

Eloise

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. 😛

Pancetti

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

Marcel

a zen-like washroom

Certainly wouldn’t have thought of a room like this myself!

Mott

a physicist’s office

I could’ve probably made this interesting if I tried hard enough, but I didn’t have the investment.

Julian

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.

Camofrog

a nature sanctuary

Good luck cleaning that jungle floor of yours! xP *scratches head*

Claudia

a cool coffee shop

I was pretty happy with this, seems like the sort of cool modern cafe she wanted.

Caroline

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…

Soleil

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.

Chrissy

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.

Stitches

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 😛

Rhonda

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.

Phoebe

a fiery hangout

I love Phoebe, so I hope I did this beautiful rainbow phoenix’s fiery wishes justice. ❤

Pekoe

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.

Apple

an apple-inspired room

Not really happy with this, I’ll definitely want to go back to it.

Ava

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!

Colton

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.

Sprinkle

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! >_>

Flurry

a winter wonderland


Two wintry requests in a row! Not much to say, it’s cute, like it well enough.

Peggy

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 :/

Alli

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 😛

Groucho

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.

Diva

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! 🙂
