For this post, I’m covering one of my internal “genres” of towns that I describe as dreamy or ethereal. It’s an aesthetic I admire a lot, not just in Animal Crossing, I tend to love dreamy art/music & whatnot as well. In Animal Crossing, I’ve noticed dreamy towns are achievable through a mix of atmospheric conditions/lighting, along with the right sort of landscaping, like pale flowers and beautiful PWPs like lamps. But instead of further breaking down what makes a town dreamy, let’s just dive right into the magical beauty of these three towns 🙂

This beautiful town has white & blue gardens, serene sparkling streams and paths, and many brilliant focal points created by public works. The calm and peaceful time of night helps set the mood, and so does the reflective, melancholy music at this hour.
The paths & patterns used in this town are really fitting, and are arranged beautifully in the plaza, so you are plunged into the atmosphere Myrtille gives off as soon as you wake up. And the same patterns are used all throughout town, creating a unifying effect.
The fireflies floating about the rivers like fairy lights add to the atmosphere too ❤
I love seeing park areas in towns and this is a lovely one in Myrtille, featuring a public art sculpture of a rotating cube.
But it’s not all huge parks and landmarks and structures in Myrtille, there are also many woodsy areas to admire.
Whoever lives here is incredibly lucky to have such a beautiful yard — must be very much in favor by the mayor!
Lastly, a visit to a wisteria trellis park that reminds me a lot of the one in a friend’s town, hehe…neat to see someone else out there had the same idea!
ルリユール (White town)
Owner: Don’t know, sadly. If you know the owner or blog, do tell.
This is a genius town that you might already be familiar with, but I wanted to sing my praises to it as well. Its concept revolves around the color white from top to bottom — the snow, the flowers, the PWPs, the villagers (and therefore, a lot of their houses happen to be lightly-colored as well to match their owners), and the human residents’ homes & interiors. This theme done by someone less inspired might’ve come across boring, but with the creativity and artistry this player used, the result is absolutely striking.
There was an aurora in the sky when I first visited this town, but not anymore in the latest update. Maybe the owner decided against it because the aurora adds some non-white colors into the town’s palette (pink, green, purple). I think it adds to the beauty of the town though so I’ll share a few of my screenshots with the aurora.
The bushes wrap around the metal bench (now that I think of it, I’m surprised the white wooden bench wasn’t used :P) in a heart ❤
Definitely my favorite landscaping feature in this town, it’s just so white, bright & dazzling *__* The sea of snow and flowers feels like it could go on forever, it’s lucky there wasn’t much dirt in the area to ruin the effect.
It’s fun to walk around seeing how many white PWPs and buildings you can spot 😛
The rooms are gooorgeous too — so thoughtful, creative, and artistic!
An elegant jewelry parlour, a chess room minus the black pieces, a bathhouse, a dining room that screams luxury and delicacy, and an escape into the clouds with teddy bears and clam-shell music boxes! Such a wide range of beautiful rooms with different purposes, but all with the same theme of white furniture.
A pretty view here 🙂 Love how the white theme is continued even onto the beach, with the use of white tiles, white flowers above and below the cliff, and piles of snow atop the palm trees’ branches.
Haha, I’m off to visit a very fun and cute attraction in this town: the milk cafe! xD
I’m not even a big milk fan, but this place has me craving a nice cool glass of milk x3
I might’ve gotten carried away with all the pictures I took & shared, but I would’ve had a hard time cutting back with how much I love this town! I encourage everyone to visit and explore every inch of it, there’s so much to see & admire in every corner 🙂

Florence has a strongly consistent color scheme as well, but it has just the right amount of variety of colors (from pinks, white, to purples) and flower types to create visual interest while still maintaining that unity. There are tons of adorable and pretty landscaping spots in this town, to the point where you feel you’re walking along the path from cute spot to cute spot, again and again x3
There are also lots of wrapped goodies to enjoy, not just dumped in one location, but strewn all over town, giving you more than one chance at that feeling of pleasant surprise in unwrapping presents! 🙂
Lots of lush greenery and those lovely pink & purple wildflowers that cover Florence
Tehe, not waking up for anything, not even a (noisy?) beautiful geyser~
It’s wonderful when you can make a bridge a scenic attraction of its own like this, love the view here.
And Florence’s entrance, my favorite spot in town *__* The train station’s entrance is framed perfectly, and creates such a dreamy effect.
And I could go on and on, this town’s filled with gorgeous spots to visit… so visit and see for yourself! 🙂
Here’s a little index for these dreamy dream towns:
