After my last post about decorating, I really got bit by the home-making bug and I decided the slow route of as I learnt the patterns was, well just too slow.
My ESO gold had mounted up fairly significantly during all the questing, so I decided why not go for a bit of splurge and went on a shopping spree for my little house.
I settled on a mostly Redguard theme which is vibrant reds and golds and opulent desert themes and started out visting guild traders to see what was on sale.
ESO doesn’t have one joint Auction house like WoW. but instead each guild (if they have a trader) can offer their items to the public though NPC traders spread around the world.
I have a long way to go yet but I’m starting to be quite happy with how it’s turning out. Lighting in ESO doesn’t seem to be the brightest so I really need to invest in a lot more candles and lamps as it’s rather dark inside.
I’m utterly in love with this sideboard and knickknacks. Not a big fan of the lights on the railing behind though, they’re bigger than I was expecting. I think I’ll move them outside later when I find a better lighting solution for inside.
The kitchen is looking a little more kitchen-like; the solitary apple has been joined by hanging beets and kebabs. Don’t laugh too much, it’ll get there eventually!
Downstairs has had a major makeover. I decided to make the awkward little chambers into their own distinct rooms through adding in some extra walls and drapes.
The bedroom hasn’t changed too much so far, though it’s missing a few homely touches to make it feel more like a bedroom.
I’ve set aside this room to be a bathroom. (The wooden tub gives it away right??)
There’s a gorgeous bath you get from the crown store that I’ve got my eye on. I want a super luxurious spa room my toons can go to and make me jealous (I don’t have a house with a bath, only a shower and I’d love one).
My play time has become really limited again as I’ve started work again. Yay!! I was only out of work for 2 weeks but it felt like it was forever so I’m very glad the forced holiday is over. The new job is less than a block from my old job but slightly longer hours so I’m still adjusting to the difference.
And on that note.. I’m off to bed.
More housing adventures soon.
