‘Queer Eye’ star Bobby Berk is helping fans redecorate their Animal Crossing homes

Amid quarantine, “Queer Eye” interior designer Bobby Berk is continuing to help people redesign and style their homes. Nowadays, though, he isn’t styling actual houses — instead, he’s working with the ones on Animal Crossing.

On April 28, the official “Queer Eye” Twitter account announced that Berk would be offering his “special hiptips” in the game.

“Queer Eye” fans wasted no time submitting entries, and Berk wasted no time responding to them.

For the most part, the interior design expert only had wonderful things to say about people’s in-game creations.

“Love it!!” Berk said about one user’s “black-n-yellow’ kitchen.

“You’re doing great love! So warm and cozy!” he told another fan when she shared that she has “constant home design anxiety.”
