Tom and Cassie have been dating for almost two years, and earlier this week, they officially became engaged – with a little help from the Design Home team!
In case you’re unfamiliar with the it, Design Home is an interior design application that allows users to create the homes of their dreams, from private island escapes to luxury high-rise apartments. Players can customize their spaces by filling them with real furniture and decor from brands like Design Within Reach, Serena & Lily, and Taylor Burke Home. After they’re done, users can get feedback from other people in the design community.
It is no wonder that when Cassie, a real estate agent, discovered the Design Home application, she instantly became obsessed with it. She found it as a perfect opportunity to stage the apartments she sells on them.
Although Tom and Cassie live in West Village with their dog Leila, Cassie’s dream home would be an apartment in Cobble Hill.
When Tom was planning his proposal to his girlfriend, Cassie, he thought it would be a great idea to incorporate the Design Home app into it, so he tracked down the Design Home team, told them how much Cassie loved the app, and asked if they could help celebrate their engagement.
Of course, they loved the idea and managed to create a special Daily Design Challenge that would appear in the app first thing on Sunday morning, which would be perfect since Tom would propose to Cassie on Saturday by taking her to revisit meaningful places from their past.
Then the next morning, Cassie opened the Design Home application and saw a new Daily Design challenge appear on her screen, which looked something like this:
Seeing this appear on the app was just the cherry on top of the proposal for Tom and Cassie!
