So I have many but a lot of them just involve sinking items into the ground to achieve the effect I want.

However something that has always bugged me is the lack of flames on fires......

I have sunk so many different braziers into the ground to get my flames.

This evening I finally became a very happy bunny.......

Man those Daedric Table Braziers have a lot of flame!! :)

    That fireplace looks good!

    Things I do:

    -Most homes with an outdoors area, I make a viewing platform with seating so that you can get a good view of the landscape beyond the walls

    -Fountains and water features often look better with some lighting (either candles or crystal lighting) below the water

    So true, in Ebonheart Chateaux the huge fountain is not moveable BUT a single candle will slot quite nicely into each of the water spouts, creating a "lit water" effect!

    Can take a bit of manoeuvring but is worth it :)

    My trick - buy a furnished house then never go back to it because the decorations cap is far too limited and the Merchant and Banker NPCs are actually a nerf once you go to a house, as you have to run all the way over to them instead of being able to summon them where you're standing.

    use orc platforms with Breton runners over them for new levels or rooms in large spaces. the amount of shock I get when people see how many rooms I made and how great the look in the overlook is its own reward ^_^

    Hmm, one thing I've loved doing with my statues is putting the dreamshards (blue crystals, stormhaven achieve vendor) inside them to give them a blue glow.

    I put the wilderking braziers under ground so just the blue light is visible, going for that magical effect.

    Plant a tree, use those ladders from the crown store and widest platforms from the normal vendor to build tree houses.

    I really wanted to use a Redguard ceiling light(whatever they're called) but it comes with a giant chain making it impossible to use on first floor. But I wanted one on the first floor so I put it there anyway and put a divider right on top of the chain on second floor so they overlap precisely and now you can't see the chain whatsoever :) May have gotten some trial and error to get that part right.

    Putting a light inside Breton corner thing where I put the dishes that were nigh invisible because it's so dark there, now everyone can see it just right.

    Screenshots possibly coming in a bit ;)

    I like to use the water troughs as planters, and put a dreamshard in them just below the plants - there are many good ways to use lighting when it comes to housing.

    Love your tree house idea.

    I used some of the stone blocks to make outside planter boxes. I also used them to make grandish fire places inside.

    I have the lake lodge and used the different planks to go around the house and connect the various levels. Kinda like in Hew\s Bane.. very sneaky.

    I create interior walls using a row of stone blocks along the floor with a tapestry on top of the row. Takes far less spaces and looks decorative as well.

    I also construct kitchen ranges from a base of stone blocks with a rectangular fire pit on top. (Can't remember the name of the fire pit/grill but it's in the Crown Store, quite cheap.) I finish off the look with a small platform or planks set into the wall above the range, to hang pans etc from.

    The same principel as with flames also works with items like the jester trees or the butterfly bushes, to increase their effect density.

    Yes the Molag Bal brazier has cool flames, as does the Valenwood brazier but both are too big to fit nicely into a fireplace. ☺

    I absolutely love some of the above building ideas, I have spent hours building platforms, viewing areas, a two storey Skooma den etc etc

    At Serenity Falls I decided I didn't like all the stonework that is around the front of the building so I spent a lot of time(and gold) covering it with vines, topiary and bushes/hedges. It now makes me smile everytime I enter there.

    Just a quick message to @ZOS please, please, please give us decorators' more slots with which to express our passion!!

    To make a stove, use a merchant counter, 3 stones, and 6 Breton torches. If you lay the Breton torches just right, you can have a gas stove with burners you can switch on and off. :)

    Oh another one I just thought of.......

    The chain on the Lantern of Anguish is just so damn annoying!

    Placing the lantern upside down but with care(to avoid odd protruding chains) allows it still to be turned on and off.....

    and placed on tables, cupboards etc :)

    I used 214 Stone Slabs to build a frame for a cave I wanted to make in Tel Galen. After the frame was up I added some boulders to give it texture and moulded it into the environment using the Volcanic Plug, column, and rock pieces before removinf the stone slabs.
