So, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer has been out for a little over a year, and I’m super excited to show you some of the houses I’ve put up since then! Before I start to talk about it though, I’m sorry it’s taken this long for me to get this out. I’ve played the game for about 90 hours, but it took me a while to actually make designs I was proud of. So, now that I’ve got a couple done and ready to post, here you go!
Digby’s Fall Home
Visit it at 0308-5795-215
Digby’s house, located between two brick tunnels and train tracks, was one of my most enjoyable builds. It’s one of my all-time favorite houses for one of my favorite characters!
Digby’s yard was set in the fall, so naturally, I decided to incorporate a lot of warm colors. I used the orange roof, exterior, and door, and paired them with orange tulips and sweet-olive starts to create a cohesive atmoshphere I think turned out very well. I used Park Clocks and modern lights as accents, and some potted plants were placed on either side of the walkway.
When walking in, you enter a sort of “lush” common space. I decided to use a very natural brick-and-wood design, which was very rustic and beautiful paired with the design of the outside.
Walk past the “Welcome Home” mats, and you enter the kitchen! It’s kind of a jumble, but my favorite room in the house. It has lots of “antiques,” and everything matched a lot more nicely than I thought it would.
The last room of this house is Digby’s bedroom, following the same orange, brown, and green style as the rest of the house. Although it’s not my favorite room in the house, I still think it’s pretty, and I think Digby likes it, too. 😉
And finally, a shot of the exterior. I like the metal chairs and tables, they’re so pretty, and I use them in a lot of my designs.
Eloise’s Green Home

Eloise wanted a home of green, and I was determined to give it to her! I love the vibrant greens that come in the spring, and matching them with whites, reds, and pinks makes a bright atmosphere I always love to see.
I built it during the cherry blossom festival, so I had some nice pink accent colors. I decided to start by designing a green, white, and brown house with a chalet-like style. I put bamboo trees and potted plants along the outside, and used some azalea bushes to outline the path. I put some pink accent lights at the entrance, and, like many of my designs lately, I used some of the metal-wire chairs. I think it feels bright and inviting, and it’s actually the brand-new header picture for my Tumblr.
The inside was only one room, and I decided to use rugs to create “hallways” for the player to walk. Near the entrance is a sitting area, and to the right, a little dresser display of some sweets and a gramophone for background music. Up near the top, there’s a nice little dining table setup, and a bedroom outlined with some green armoires that provide a nice texture to the space.
All in all, it isn’t the most elaborate home I’ve made, but I’m still proud of it, and I hope you enjoy it too!
Goldie’s Book Forest
Visit it at 0408-5795-235
Goldie is one of the characters in my New Leaf town, and I was super excited to make a design for her! She was one of the first animals I did when I started the game, but I never really liked her room. So, I decided to finally give her a finished home.
This home is a little different from the others, mainly because, rather than having gardens on both sides with the house in the middle, there is one large garden with the house to the right. This house, similar to Digby’s, is set in the fall season, and I used a bunch of sweet-olive starts and potted plants combined with some benches for a nice sitting area. I’d love to read a book there.
The left side of Goldie’s main room is a kitchen/dining area, while the right side is a modern-meets-traditional sitting area. I decorated the room with some bright yellows and chocolate browns, which match each other quite well. It was one of the first modern designs I tried, and I think it turned out really interesting!
Goldie’s bedroom took a little different turn. Attempting to achieve a more natural, green look, I used a combination of Green and Alpine furniture (my two favorite furniture sets, actually) which created a nice, cozy atmosphere. I’m really proud of it, and it’s one of my favorite houses I’ve designed!
