One of my favorite things to do in XIV is mess around with housing. While the housing system isn't perfect, it's certainly not the worst and over the years several handy 'bugs' have been discovered, leading to a larger variety of ways that decorating enthusiasts can design their homes. Many designers feature their newest builds on their blogs, and even offer their services to other players. I enjoy checking out some of those blogs for random inspiration, and try to design cozy interiors fitting of my characters. I'm gonna show off some of Isalenne's house today with a small screenshot spam...
Plot 36, 12th ward in Mist on Cactuar. Isa's house is still a WIP - I was lucky enough to snag a medium a month or so before Shadowbringers. I managed to get a lot of it done, but there are a few rooms and areas that I haven't finished yet, but I do like what I have so far.
The yard is ... I haven't really figured it out yet, but at least this corner has a nice view of the beach.
Still playing around with the main floor... right now this leads to a comfy room with a fireplace on the left, and an unfinished kitchen on the right.
I've probably spent the most time in the upstairs library ... lining up a bunch of lofts, windows and planters. It was frustrating at times, but I'm really happy with the end result. I was inspired by the popular false ceiling look that a lot of designers have been using, and I wanted lots of light and plants. There's also the bathroom, master bedroom and guest bedroom up here, but only about two of those are finished.
I decided on a small bar/recreation room theme for the majority of the basement. The corner next to the bar has some couches, and the loft above it has seats, too. On the other side of the fountain is another fish tank and some musical instruments.
The sewing room is in the back and also the dreaded junk storage area - please don't look, it's a mess!
Feel free to stop by Isa's place, hopefully I'll be finishing up the last few rooms and details soon~!
