Huh. I thought I would be able to score much higher than 635,000 the day after I chose to try the antique theme. I did a count and I’m pretty sure I had at least 15 themed items in both of the rooms that I chose to outfit for the challenge.
In one room, I had the complete rococo set and the other one had some regal stuff but since the daily essentials bonus are counted only once, there was no point in throwing in another full set. (Actually, I still have the rococo and regal furniture because I won’t give up until I get maximum points.) But that’s where I have some questions. 😡
In Liquefy’s guide, it lists several series that are antique themed. I’m assuming that I DO NOT need all parts of those furniture sets for the game to register the items being in the room.
I also wonder whether mannequins are ignored or not because that score seems kind of off. I had mannequins in the royal outfit, Hero attire, and the knight’s helm, armor, and armor shoes. I’ve since removed the clothing and just put them around the room instead.
I know I have 3 exterior reforms for sure but I thought I had 4. 😦 It’s because I think I got the wrong roof. I didn’t realize there were more than one black-coloured rooftop. ^^;
Anyhoo, I’ve revised both rooms since. Here’s the list for them.

I take it the vases are counted as a set? Well, regardless of whether the 3 of them are counted with the lower point calculation or not (i.e. the one from the regular HHA evaluation), I still have over 8 items in each room. If I still don’t break 1.1 million tomorrow, I’ll cram even MORE things into them since there are still a lot of things I can buy from the catalogue and even the HHA showcase.
For the exterior, I have the fancy exterior, fancy fence, and arched door. The mailbox is zen so it’s not counted and I just ordered the golden roof today. The type of home is a zen castle but I can’t see anything in the guide or other guides that design matters.
Here’s hoping I’ll surpass the 1 million mark tomorrow. 😡
Edit on September 18th: Wooooo! 😀 Seems like removing the mannequins and getting the golden roof did the trick! Well, I also added about 6 more items between both rooms.
