An online luxury homeware brand has launched the world’s first Animal Crossing interior design service, and is recruiting professional and aspiring interior designers to be part of it.
The consultancy service, created by luxury homeware brand Olivia’s, has been launched for players of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, who dream of having the perfect in-game home but are unsure how to design their luxury retreat. Consultants will be able to lend their expertise for achieving harmony in the home while keeping within the player’s Bell budget (in-game currency).
Virtual Interior Design Consultants can expect to earn upwards of £40/hour for their services, but are able to set their own rates. Clients will receive real time feedback from their consultant, along with a list of recommended products and styles to achieve the desired look and feel of their dream home.

Applicants will be asked to provide a brief description of relevant experience, along with their CV. A Nintendo Switch console, a copy of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game and a strong internet connection are also required.
Players who hire a consultant will have them visit their virtual home where they can discuss desired styles and find practical solutions in real time. Consultants will also be able to mock up a number of different design styles and suggested combinations for players to refer back to at a later date should they feel the need for a redesign.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons launched on 20 March 2020 exclusive to Nintendo Switch and became the fastest-selling digital video game of all time with 5 million digital copies sold worldwide within its first month of release*. Extensive customisation within the game allows players to design the interior of their in-game home from scratch, choosing everything from the colour of interior walls and style of furniture to what to do with that spare room.
Olivia’s, part of The Moot Group, offers the latest interior and quality homeware solutions in one place and at the click of a button. Customers can decorate their entire home, from large furniture items to accessories and kitchen utensils, all through the site. The brand has built a reputation for delivering the latest fashion for homes, and handpicks items from across the world to ensure only quality interior design products are available to its customers.
Nick Moutter, founder of Olivia’s, said,
“The release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons couldn’t have come at a better time. With everyone social distancing and many people completely isolated from friends and family, this game allows them to stay connected while immersing themselves in a virtual world away from the stresses and restrictions of current life.
“At Olivia’s we love sharing our passion for luxury living and design expertise with our customers, whatever their plans. Whether it’s pairing clashing patterns so that they still complement each other, personalising the latest Instagram trends or how to build a room around one key piece. So we thought why not set up a service where this advice can be provided in a virtual world? Especially one like Animal Crossing where players take a lot of pride in their game surroundings.
“We’re looking forward to recruiting more designers for the service, and helping players create the world of their dreams.”
