Homeware brand Olivia's has launched a consultancy service that's now taking applicants for interior designers to help Animal Crossing: New Horizons players perfect the look and feel of their in-game homes. Budding and professional interior designers are being offered upwards of £40 an hour to provide this much-needed service, and it'll be available to players worldwide.
So what do you get for your money? Well, your handy virtual consultant will help you to decorate your humble house, lending their expertise and showing you how to achieve "harmony in the home".
The consultant will visit your island to discuss design ideas and desired styles, then attempt to find practical solutions in real-time. Consultants can also supply a mock-up of different design styles for you to use in future if you ever fancy redecorating. Basically, they'll tell you in the nicest possible terms what's naff and what isn't, all while sticking to your current bell budget.
Applicants will be asked to submit their CV and a brief description of any relevant experience they may have. A Nintendo Switch, copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and strong internet connection are also required for you to be considered.
"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", said Nick Moutter, founder of Olivia's. "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".
Am I convinced that this isn't just an elaborate piece of promo for Olivia's? Not yet. But the fact of the matter is that New Horizons is stupidly popular, and of those many fans, some might have the money and lack of design know-how to warrant calling in the professionals.Need friends for Animal Crossing: New Horizons Multiplayer?
