Welcome to senior Ashley Sagi’s room

“I find my room to be different from others because it is filled with things that resemble me. It is my safe place where I spend most of my time. It is filled with all sorts of drawings, paintings, pictures, books and all sorts of knick knacks. I have leaned towards liking Victorian and light academia aesthetics to help me decorate my room. I look towards these aesthetics for inspiration because I like portraying the things that make me happy. I love art so it was important for me to provoke that through my room. My favorite item in my room is a paint by numbers painting I have hung up on my wall. It’s a really pretty painting of flowers in a vase.”

“I spend a lot of time in my room and I really wanted it to feel more comfortable and look cool. I love the LED lights. They add a cool atmosphere and the tapestries add a unique look to my normally bland walls. I don’t know the right aesthetic, but I would say it is heavily influenced from old TikTok trends with the LEDs and tapestries. The hammock I have set up is what makes it unique. I always go out and chill in my hammock in the summer so I just said ‘screw it I want one in my room.’ My dad and I put some eye bolts in the wall and boom it was ready. People definitely notice the LED lights first, as you can see them from the hallway.”

“I would say my room’s aesthetic is just very personal. I have little personal trinkets and pictures in my room that I’ve collected from memories I’ve made. I shared a room with my brother until I was 13, so I never really had the opportunity to [decorate my own room]. Once I got my room to myself, I realized I might as well make it what I want it to be so that’s when I started decorating it. I have a lot of film photos and they stand out the most. I started [film photography] around December 2020. I had been wanting to do it for a while before then, but I never really knew where to get the cameras and the film, but then I did research and that’s when I started.”

Welcome to freshman Remi Ziebell’s room

“My room is my happy place. It is very homey and it has lots of stuff on the walls to emphasize my Y2K aesthetic. I tried to have almost all of the walls covered so it represents my personality more. My room started small with little decorations and then I just kept getting more things and they all added to the vibe of my room. I get most of my decorations from Amazon and ads on TikTok. That’s also where I got the idea for my Peace Tea decorations. It started off as me and my friends collecting cans, then I wanted to incorporate them into my room without it being basic and just a wall, so I made Peace Tea guns.”
