What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

Defining the Bohemian Look

Before you dive into the rich beautiful looks of Bohemian decor or the boho style, let’s define what it is and what it means. The origin of boho is widely debated, it’s theorized to have started as early as the 19th century after the French revolution, others think boho was lifted by the French from wandering Romani people, or from an area of the Czech Republic called Bohemia. Regardless of where it started the style has evolved over the years drawing inspirations from other cultures. 

One of the most popular iterations or revitalizations of the bohemian style is traced back to the 60s and 70s. It was at the time considered to be a poor person’s clothing style, but of course now it’s transcended back into being chic. So when filling up a room with the boho bedding you’re drawing inspiration from the Hippy counterculture in the previous millennia as well as the French, and the wandering Romani people. 

So what is at the heart and vibes of boho? 

  • Natural- things that come organically, are inspired by nature, or earthy. 
  • Flowy- things that have light vibes.
  • Relaxed/laid back vibes- anything that sparks peace or joy is permitted.
  • Free-spirited- anything to support the counterculture, including movements like black lives matter, would be a great fit. However, anything that sticks it to the man or normative societal values is appreciated. 
  • Heretic- something that advocates for opposed to accepted beliefs.
  • Hippy- this one is gimme! If you can’t bring it to Woodstock then it’s not your iconic boho, but boho is about individuality so far be it for us to tell you what to pick!
  • Misfit/Oddball- since the boho is pretty much always been with the counterculture anything that deviates from the norm could fall into the boho category.

Now that we have covered what defines the style we can get down to the nitty gritty of finding the boho look for your dorm bedding.

Reasons to go Boho

Brings Zen

After a long day traipsing across campus and listening to long lectures, not to mention tests, homework, papers, and various sundry tasks, you want to come home to a relaxing comfortable homey room.You need to unspool from your lengthy day in something earthy and subduing. That’s where your zen bohemian dorm room comes in.  The more a room brings you joy the better you will feel.

Make a personality statement

Half the fun of Boho is  expressing yourself. Anyone can buy a boring matched set. But not you. You want to fight the system of vanilla mediocrity. You want to put prints with stripes and throw that fur pillow on top of that. Your room will bend to your whimsy.  You do what you want and you love it.

Your dorm mate will appreciate not having to explain Mike Wazowski staring at them when they come home from class. You are in a new space, you are a new you. You are independent and fun and ready for something new, something totally you.

Get in touch with your spiritual side

Nature echoes spirituality. Being in touch with nature and the earth helps you to reflect on who you really are. Boho brings a little nature from outside inside. This can be a way to escape the pressures of school and the all consuming presence of technology. A fabulous animal print or a floral pattern can connect you with the more serene world of mother earth. 

Let your freak flag fly

No need to cave to societal pressures. Be your own you. Boho is all about nonconformity. It continuously regenerates itself with counter culture. You want a hodgepodge of various colors and styles, then do it. You don’t have to be what they want you to be. You mix and match how you feel to make your unique statement. Don’t let people dictate your style. You choose what makes you happy. 

Boho is about being free from cookie cutter style. It is about coloring outside the lines. It is about freedom of expression. You are moving from adolescence to adulthood and you are ready to make a room that is all about you. The whole point of boho is you like multiple things. And who says you cannot put them all together in an aesthetically pleasing way? You can choose natural things and paisley things and flowy things and put them all together in a way that looks good to you. Your room is your sanctuary. It should bring you peace and comfort. So decorate the way you want so that you are comfortable where you spend most of your time.
