My Room Through The Ages
Phase 1: 2016-2017
Phase 2: 2017-2018
The next two photos are from my Junior year of college. During our lease at the Enclave, Skyler got engaged. So, when the lease ended she moved in with her fiancé while my previous roommate Jessica, our friend Petra & I moved into a newly built apartment! It is by far the most stunning apartment I have lived in so far. It was super close to campus still and the coffee shop that I worked at! Since it was a newly built apartment, rent was quite low since they were really just looking to get tenants in for the first year. We did not renew the next year since the price went up-and we were going our separate ways as roomies!
Style wise and in my own life, I went through massive soul shaking changes while living here. I had my spiritual awakening and a dark night of the soul that lasted months (click here for a blog post detailing everything I was experiencing during this time). I was working 2 jobs- the coffee shop still & Casa Amigos as a hostess & bartender in training, on top of class work and an internship. Due to how busy I was, I did not prioritize cooking for myself and slipped back to eating out a lot. By October I was 90 lbs, using the restroom MULTIPLE times a day and was facing all the consequences of not mindfully connecting to or taking care of myself the past two years. Following my spiritual awakening my vibe/space definitely began to change and my room reflected that as well. I started going for warmer colors. I think it honestly reflects a shift from wanting to be very glam to something more soft and welcoming. I absolutely loved the lights I added to my room and felt so much safe and cozier in my room. The window on the "left" was actually a faux glass window which led to the hallway. Initially when we moved in here, I did want to keep the gray, cool tones theme going, I just made it a bit darker and warmer by adding a dark gray (see bottom left photo). I also did some DIY in this room and started tapping into my creativity for the first time since I was little (whoo for inner child healing hehe)! I got the chandelier light canvas from Amazon and the background was originally black, but I painted it to make it ombre so that it would match my room! This was also the first place that I created an altar space, connecting to my guides, dancing for fun + connection + making spiritual soaks/baths (cause lord knows, I NEEDED it).
Phase 3: 2018-2020
I do not have photos of my space between Skysong (the apartment above) and the place I am living in now. I kept it pretty much the same as the photo on the right though. I just ordered vines + bought my first house plants to add more life and greenery to my space! :)
Phase 4: 2020-2021
