    Hi! I'm working on this furniture project that's probably going to take me FOREVER because 1: I'm not an artist and 2: I play SDV too much to be actually productive lol. But I thought I'd share what I've got, in case anyone wants to use it!

    The Idea

    I want something that feels authentic to the style of Stardew Valley, but with a light, contemporary, and somewhat whimsical feel. We have so many gorgeous furniture sets already, and I want to make something new and not too over-styled. Something that will look good and feel right in every pixellated home. I love contemporary/modern/mid-century design mixed with lush bohemian flair. Minimalist design with lots of cozy details. Light and airy meets warm and fuzzy.

    Design Aesthetic:
    Light neutral overall theme
    Warm wood tones
    Rich textiles
    Uniform furniture colors (but with various styles/decorations, ie: dining table with/without setting)
    Uniform accent colors (but with multiple color schemes to choose from at download)
    Hippie-dippie decor

    Anyway, probably won't be done for a very, very, very long time, but I thought I'd post what I have done here, in case anyone would like to use it. I'll come back to this thread to post updates when I finish something new.

    What Doing

    Done So Far:
    - White brick fireplace
    - Red Persian rug
    - Small TV stand
    - Basic window
    - 2 plants
    - 2 small dining tables
    - Polaroid wall decor
    - Fresh neon sign (replaces Joja light)

    Next Up:
    - Maybe a couch and some chairs
    - Might fix the moon in the nighttime window - I realized it looks pretty stupid if you have more than one window
    - Window with curtains
    - Try again with the dining chairs
    - Dining table with iron legs
    - Fairy lights wall decor
    - Try making a hanging plant or even a pendant light out of a painting tile
    - Idk whatever I feel like - if you have ideas/requests lmk!

    Update Log:
    7/22/18 - added 2 dining tables, red rug, window, 2 plants, more polaroids, fresh neon light (replaces joja light, still needs work but looks great on dark wallpaper!)
    7/22/18 - took ugly oak chairs out of downloadable file. will deuglify later.
    7/21/18 - did a fireplace


    Stardew Valley 1.3.x (beta):
    see attached

    Previous Versions:

    I haven't yet made a furniture.xnb for pre-1.3 versions yet, and I don't know if the 1.3 versions will work???? you can try it and let me know if you want! but back up your original furniture.xnb first!

              Cool! Is there anything in particular you want to work on? Decor or tables or...? I can also send you the full furniture.png file if you want.

                Also, I just updated this with more furniture! Starter houses in the basic farm will pretty much be fully decked out ;P

                  nope, everything is game ^^ though single-tile stuff first might be better if you need anything done in a particular order. personally sending the full tilesheet would be grand since eventually i will need the pieces anyway ^^

                    lol i put a little crescent moon in the night time window because i thought it'd be cute. then i was playing and bought a second window and realized two moons looks pretty stupid. might fix later.

                      Oh this is gorgeous. I'll definitely use it once it's more fleshed out.

                        Thank you! It's kind of been put on the back burner while I was working on Immersive Festival Dialogue, but I'll try to focus a bit more on it soon!

                          To be fair, I use that mod as well lol. It's nice to get something other than the one-liner.

                            Oh, I love this so far! I can't wait to download once it's more fleshed out! I would now, but... I think not having a full, matching set would kill me. :laugh: Definitely following this thread in the meantime. Keep up the great work! <3

                              Thank you! I'm sorry I haven't done much with this in a bit, I was busy working on Immersive Festival Dialogue, then I was taking a break, now I just started a new job, but I'll get back to this as soon as I can!
