Newly Renovated – Crystal Lab R&D

Amon’s brought a bit of the Crystal Tower to Shirogane with his newly redesigned lab. The Observation Station even has more privacy now! Woot! ((Really, it’s looking less a lab now days and more of a nerd hangout….))

Anyhow! If you want to stop by on Mateus, there’s a guestbook there for visitors! Feel free to pop in and take screens if you like what you see!

Free Company Sleeping Quarters

It’s been a while since I decorated a themed room for our Free Company house. Since some characters, like Amon, don’t have an actual bedroom within the house (or even in his apartment now), I decided to turn Tad’s personal room into a sleeping quarters for the FC members for RP purposes. 

When I saw those new beds in 5.3, I knew I wanted to use them for something, and this seemed just the layout! This isn’t fully complete yet – I’m sure I’ll find more decorations to go in here over time, but it’s a pretty solid floorplan.

Amon’s Top Secret Lab (Remake)

I’ve been redesigning Amon’s Lab in our FC house now that we have a bunch of new furniture options with Shadowbringers.

He’s got a brand new communication “tower” a new workstation, an observation room (complete with note-taking Allagan node and spotlight) and tons of potion bottles! It’s not 100% complete but it’s moving in the right direction. 

Anyone on Crystal is welcome to stop by! Just beware the slime leak!

Relaxation & Recreation Room

Mateus – Shirogane – Ward 14, Lot 14 – Room #3

This isn’t actually a new-new room for our FC house, but one I just put some final touches on, making it ready to post about. I still think there can be some additional wall decor added, but I’m holding off to see what the new expansion releases for housing before investing a whole lot more.

Here we have a rec room – there’s an attended spa to get you in a chill mood. Lots of reading nooks, including one under the loft. Up top, is a couch perfect for arts and crafts, a musical moogle and a peaceful little aquarium. 

There’s also a cushioned window nook and an art corner with another aquarium for inspiration. A number of of comfy napping spots and cushions are included for your enjoyment. 

This personal room is labeled RP at the Homewood Cottage FC house, and is open to visit, like all the RP personal rooms. Address is up at the top!

Sparring/Training Room

Mateus – Shirogane – Ward 14, Lot 14 – Room #5

My newest private room design for our FC house is a sparring/training room. This was a great theme for the alt who owns this room being he’s big into fitness and battle. 

He’s also into blue – can you tell? Which is perfect because the FFXIV iteration of the character ended up a Dragoon main.

Anyhow, there’s a large open area in the center of the room with some red mats for the actual practice space. There’s also a training dummy (mannequin) set up. 

For the record, I’m not calling Roes dummies. There were only three races to pick from and this seemed to fit the idea of a sparring partner best.

There’s a trophy display of an Ixion horn in the back corner. 

Next to that, we have some lockers for changing, and a curtained-off shower station. Gotta wash that training funk off after practice! 

Lots of windows to brighten up the otherwise darker room. And a scuffed-up PotD floor which lends to the feeling that it’s seen better days. 🙂 

I still feel like there’s some more I can add to this room as new housing items come out – it was only in Eureka that we got the chainmail hangars and the crossed halberds (which aren’t listed at the FFXIV Housing site!). Why don’t we have more weapon displays? It’s hard to make a convincing sparring room without some weapon racks. But.. maybe one day. 

Anyhow, this personal room is labeled RP at the Homewood Cottage FC house, and is open to visit, like all the RP personal rooms. Address is up at the top!

Sparring

Decided to work on decorating another themed private room in the FC house today, which is the sparring/practice room. This turned into a mock-sparring on our non-RP alts… nether of which are SAM mains. Just took a few screenshots because the job poses are cool.

And the room is turning out to look completely different than this in the end.

Guest Quarters

In the event Homewood Cottage (my FC house) should have visitors who need to stay the night, we have a brand new Guest Quarters (Koh’s Personal Room)! 

There’s a bright and cheery main room for reading, dining or just relaxing by the fire. In a more private section, you’ll find the sleeping area and an upstairs hot tub. 

The beds are screened off for a bit of privacy. And there’s a little sitting corner for late-night reading or early morning beverages! 

This room is open to visitation anytime! If you stop by, feel free to leave a comment in our guest book on the counter in the main room! 

Shirogane Plot 14, Ward 14 

Zuri’s Small Ball Room

The second RP room I finished for our FC house! 

If Dancer ever becomes a job, and if it fits with Zuri’s character, I’m considering switching for RP purposes. That inspired the idea of building a small dance hall in our FC using her private quarters. 

Like the rest of the house, it’s open to viewing (the other rooms aren’t anywhere near done yet, sorry!). Drop us a note in the guestbook if you do stop in.
