Virtual Interior Design Consultants can expect to earn upwards of Â£40/hour for their services, but are able to set their own rates
Aspiring interior designers can get paid to help decorate homes on Animal Crossing – and they can expect to earn upwards of Â£40 an hour.
A luxury homeware brand has launched the worldâs firstÂ AnimalÂ CrossingÂ interior design service, allowing players to hire a virtual consultant to help decorate their in-game home.
Available to players worldwide, the brand is inviting professional and aspiring interior designers to apply to be part of the collective of virtual consultants.
The consultancy service, created by luxury homeware brand, Oliviaâs, has been launched for players ofÂ AnimalÂ Crossing: New Horizons.
Consultants will be able to lend their expertise for achieving harmony in the home while keeping within the playerâs Bell budget (in-game currency).
Virtual Interior Design Consultants can expect to earn upwards of Â£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.
Nick Moutter, founder of Oliviaâs, said: âThe release ofÂ AnimalÂ Crossing: New HorizonsÂ couldnât have come at a better time.
âWith 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.
âAt Oliviaâs we love sharing our passion for luxury living and design expertise with our customers, whatever their plans. Whether itâs 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.
âSo we thought why not set up a service where this advice can be provided in a virtual world? Especially one likeÂ AnimalÂ CrossingÂ where players take a lot of pride in their game surroundings.
âWeâre looking forward to recruiting more designers for the service, and helping players create the world of their dreams.â
Applicants will be asked to provide a brief description of relevant experience, along with their CV.
A Nintendo Switch console, a copy of theÂ AnimalÂ Crossing: New HorizonsÂ 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.
