While Cristina was working on her MFA in Recording Arts & Technologies at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), she would mix in her bedroom and referred to it as the purple room because of the purple string lights hanging from the ceiling. 

When she left Tennessee, she continued amassing purple rugs, couches, mirrors, and furniture to add to the room. Needless to say, the room name continued and caught on at her second adventure, this time in State College, PA, where she was working on a graduate Acoustics degree at The Pennsylvania State University.
