I want this to be my house


I really love this app, but I wish you could do more.
I want to be able to go in the house and look round. I want to find beautiful art and furnishings and examine the stitching. I want to look on a bookshelf, pick up a book and read it.
If this app spoke to goodreads or kindle, I could do that, right?
I would pay 75p to have a look in the study, 75p to look in the bedroom (if they were as good as the garden). There's money in this, somewhere.

Very relaxing

I have used this app twice now and it's so strange how calming it is! I finish playing around in each of the areas and couple with the music I feel seriously relaxed! A suggestion would be to be able to jump to each 'Island' and walk through the wilderness, touching grass and making birds fly with your touch. Reminds me of a mini Avatar type realm


I love lush!! ; )

Loved playing around with this so much, i think it would be improved if you could explore the house and surrounding areas/islands! also id like to be able to just move around by dragging my fingers around the screen n pinching to zoom in n out, having to tap on buttons to move kinda ruins the mood a bit. such a cute app tho i do like it💖💖
