In a recent interview with the gaming website "Massively Overpowered", LOTRO's executive producer Rob Ciccolini said that there will be a new playable race when the expansion is released and this is good news for those who have a strong preference to Elves. High Elves are known in Tolkien's works as the race of elves who sailed from the Grey Havens to Valinor and are more powerful and legendary than other Elves (think Galadriel, Celebrimbor, Gil-Galad, etc.). This is expected to be the newest playable race when the expansion is released.
Coming sooner than the full expansion is Update 19.3 which will feature fully adjustable decoration hooks. Check out this video made by Andang of LOTRO Players to see how the housing decoration system will be changing for the better.
