First topic message reminder :

Hello, all!  I'm working on making a fun "decor blog" that will help you all work more and more beauty into your towns!  I'm all about combining a functional town and a beautiful town, and I've come across a few designs and ideas over my years of playing that I'd like to share in a way that will allow you to draw from it in making your own "perfect town."  But as I go through the brainstorming process and the idea-gathering process, I've found I need your input.

What would you most like to see in a decor blog?  Would you rather see functional decorations, such as ways to arrange your fields and factories to be both beautiful and useful, or would you rather see "fun" decorations like animals or geometric designs that just look cool?  Are you most interested in high-level decorations that show off your wealth or are you more interested in making your town beautiful on a shoestring?  Also, what approximate level decorations are you looking for?  For instance, level 50+? 100+?  Zoo animals unlocked?

Whatever you choose in your response as to what you most want to see, I will take into consideration as I try to plan out a series of decoration tutorials.  And I will try also to include a variety of tutorials for all levels and interests!

Also, PLEASE PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE do me a HUGE favor and as you're playing the game, if you see in a friend's town or someone you find on a leaderboard something you really think you'd love to see a tutorial on, SEND THE PICTURE TO ME!!!  I'm really trying to build myself a decent-sized base of decoration ideas before I start the blog so that I don't run out of steam a few weeks in.  Your screenshots will be of invaluable assistance to me.

So, go at it!  Tell me what you want to see.  Very Happy   I await your responses.

I did a bit of rearranging; I also added a simple entry-way.

Here's a better shot of that one area, I hope it looks okay.

@Michelle I am loving your ideas!  Your town seems to be keeping everything spread out and not crammed into a corner, which I admire.  And you have made very good use of some of the seasonal decorations, which I usually struggle to make blend in since they're often a slightly different style than the rest of the decos.  Your color tastes are wonderful as well!

I should get the pilot blog out Monday.  I got a bad bug of some sort last week which wiped me out, and I'm engaged in that lovely game of "catch-up" this week.  But the blog is almost done.

I like my little town to feel like a real big town. So decorations that help that are always welcome. I also want my town to be fun.

Emily, my first photo posting a flop. I cannot figure out how to delete the 9 photos that are like the first 3. Can you possibly fix my post to just show the 3 pictures please?

No problem, done!  ;D

I love what you've done with it!  It's very special and does get that "big town" feel.  And whenever I see those little valentine's bears in someone's town they make me smile.

Id love to help with any inspiration I can. There's so much to show in my town and zoo... both designed to be as realistic and functional as a town design could go with what we are provided. Just not sure, silly question, but is it safe to post my friend code here?... So you can view my design, if you're interested.

As far as what issues i ran into when I was in the early stages of designing my town, the biggest issue was layout. I spent hours looking online at actual town layouts, aerial views of street layouts, you name it. My saving grace was I made an "anchor zone" (my town hall area aka the village of...) and built off of that anchor. Same with my zoo. Same anchor design but with a castle in place of town hall. Also, another gift you could provide on your blog, demonstrate examples of the ability to hide decor by layering with trees, etc.

@Hope1982

If you prefer not to post your friend code, post your coop code and the name of your town. This way Emily will also be able to find your city and view your decos! thumbs

I'd love to be able to see these towns, unfortunately ios/android tags, or town names or co-op names don't work with windows players. I don't know if I have to sign in thru FB to see them. If that's the case I will just have to stick with a few pictures here and there that people posted. 

@Sunshine City  I love that little play area with the lion.

That’s a great solution. The chessboard pulls the eye away from the orange roofs.

Here are a few more pics from other towns that I found reasonably interesting. I'm sorry that 1 is a repeat; I don't know how to delete just 1 picture.
