Airie's Housing Designer Spotlight - @demon_31 - PC/EU
The Designer Spotlight is an 'interview a designer' session that is generally scheduled once a week at Professor Airie's Twitch stream — featuring one designer each time and providing an opportunity to explore the designer's inspiration, stories behind the homes, thought processes, design concepts, and tips and tricks.
Make sure to check out Airie's Ultimate ESO Homestead Guide along with her previous Designer Spotlight featuring @Cassis_Fanta from PC/NA.

Kyle aka Demon_31 has been been playing ESO for 2 1/2 years and is really passionate about elder scrolls lore and lore-based housing designs. Kyle is a long time officer of the Rose Guilds and occasionally post Lore Weekly pages on the Rose Guild Discord (mainly to do with recently added content and newly revealed lore).
Demon's Tips & Tricks
- Have a theme in your mind while furnishing a house, as that can really help build the foundations of your own creations.
- Not all ideas will come at once for the house that you are furnishing. If you cannot think of what to do with a house, take a break and come back to it. Relax, it is supposed to be fun. Have a coffee and a sweetroll and enjoy the experience.
- If you are like me and a beginner to cobbling, you will find a lot of ideas starting off as 'accidental' but look good (like i have in some of my houses). You will also find that if you get a group of random furnishings and clump them together, usually that will help you spot potential cobbling ideas to use.
-If you love lore as I do then a great way to have an easy theme in mind is to pick a character from ESO or any game for that matter and base the house on them.
- Trees and large statues are a great way to make an area look more filled up in large, open outside spaces in Notable- and Classic-sized houses.
- If you struggle with lighting up an area in a house, you can purchase large chandeliers and put them under the flooring to make a really nice upward glow. Depending on the theme of the house, I recommend both the blue and orange vampiric chandeliers for good mood lighting.
