    Show off your sweet Crib!

    I've seen it asked for but not delivered, so may I present to you a thread to show off your sweet home and all your awesome knick-knacks!

    I'll start it off with my home at 2 Twinfall Path, Naradris, Falathlorn Homesteads, Nimrodel

    Every good home starts with a well-manicured yard:
    I decided to go with a garden that brings the comforts of indoors, outdoors. It's also great for photoshoots.


    I have a parlor for entertaining guests that shows off a growing map collection:
    In person, this room is very close, yet calming.


    Upstairs is a more private room, perfect for unwinding with a good book after a long day of saving the world:
    Rich golds and reds unknot minds while the fire soothes sore muscles.


    I'm lucky to have my kinhouse just down the road! Here's a look at the Tirithuin Menel meeting room:
    Vibrant greens, with the spoils of conquest scattered in between kegs, tables, and benches.


    I'm still of the opinion that more item slots in our homes would really bring them to life, but they have the potential to look pretty neat regardless!

    Beautiful! I have always felt the shape of the elf houses would make them a bit hard to decorate, but yours is great! I'll have to see if I can get some pics of my hobbit house one of these days.

    In June I made a post on my blog parodying MTV Cribs: LOTRO Cribs, Episode 1: C-Lindë.
    Faërie is a perilous land, and in it are pitfalls for the unwary and dungeons for the overbold. – J.R.R. Tolkien, ‘On Fairy-Stories’.

    Some of you may remember my housing project last December - it was featured on CSTM here if you want to see the article.

    A couple of my favorite rooms are:















    If you want to tour the actual houses, they are always open on the Nimrodel server, Falathorn homestead in Athrad Valen - 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 Haven Way and 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 Fairwood Lane.

    Just a side note: I do watch the occupancy of the elf neighborhoods and if they should ever fill up I will release the houses for others to use.

    Re: Show off your sweet Crib!

    I love the rich textures you've gone with, Silverblade! I always thought the elf walls and stone floors were too stark to work with! I especially love the upstairs room. The greens match the secondary colors in the wallpaper very nicely.

    This is my kinhouse, dressed up as a personal house. I wish kinhouses had three options for wallpaper/wall color because I really wanted my keg room to be creepy.

    Amazing pics Trilwych!

    The whole creepy keg room theme is great!....and the wallpapers blend nicely! Also the bedchamber and solar (with the Lithe wallpaper I assume?) are really comfy looking

    Thanks. The bedchamber/solar wall is actually Festival of Enedhin (the wood doesn't match the support beams, true, but I wanted something light...). The room that I decided was the solar has surprisingly few decoration hooks. It could take at least a couple more large furniture and rugs!

    I had a Dwarf deluxe house at some point but decided to sell it (so to speak) when I got the kinhouse, so I now have a wee "guest cottage" right on the edge of the Thorin's Hall Homestead purely for travel/convenience reasons, though it still had to be "livable" in case I parked an alt there for a while...

    Hmm, I was contemplating to try and get a kinhouse like that but I wonder did you sacrifice guild membership to get it (reckon it would require to run an alibi kin just for the purpose) or did you make an alt the kin leader and sacrifice being able to dispay BoA decoration like boss tokens?

    Anyways, myself I've just started decorating my house at 4 Garden St. (Bree homestead), so here it is for what it's worth:







    Large room is still work in progress.

    Trilwych, the dwarf home is so cute and cozy!

    Kheld, very nice man-cave, would've thought it impossible for an elf home. What is that banner in your yard, the one on the left?

    Yes, you need a vanity kinship for this purpose, but that doesn't mean you can't have toons in different kinships. For example, if you quest on your main with a bunch of friends in their kinship, then keep your main in that kinship, and use your alts (and probably a F2P account) to create another kinship.



    Very nice pics, all.

    I actually ran across a Dwarf deluxe house at an ideal location and 'sold' the standard house for yet another "guest cottage," despite having gotten rid of my first deluxe because I had upgraded. Oh well. Decorations still forthcoming--the extra chest is always nice and convenience to the TH stable is bar none.

    I'm pretty sure you can set permissions so your main can decorate, but that might only be for personal houses.

    Re: Show off your sweet Crib!

    Scoff, I forgot to mention that I find your bedchamber kind of... amusing. I imagine the house owner tripping over that bear head in the wee hours of the morning, and the off-kilter map on the wall makes me suspect that in one such trippage, said owner lurched forward and smacked the frame.


    New deluxe guest cottage; I saw that this one was available and immediately pounced because it's just above my where my old Dwarf house was and is thus situated right next to the homestead exit. I actually like all the homesteads, but both the Man and Elf ones are just too far away from everything. (Turbine, add stables for homeowners already!)



    The great room has all the amenities one might want. Dining, a lounge area, and of course, a hot tub. (Yes, it's the Rivendell reflective pool, but...) It's actually a shallow pool, but after heating large stones in the fireplace and placing them at the bottom of the pool, one can enjoy a relaxing foot soak after a long day of adventuring.



    The parlour also serves as a study room when there are no guests to entertain.



    The hobbit-style fireplace in the bedchamber is actually a fine height for placing one's stein on the mantle while browsing a book just before bed.

    This is correct--both personal and kinship houses. You can set permissions for anyone to allow decoration. However, the bound decorations of course can only be moved around by that character.

    When splitting decoration permissions across toons, keep in mind that if you abandon the house, any decorations not bound to the house owner should end up in the decoration-owner's escrow.
