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!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

You don’t want just basic bedding, you want something that will last a long time. You also want something that is able to fit any type of personality that you are, especially preppy. To achieve this look, we recommend a brand like Betsey Johnson, who has to be the closest to reasonably priced preppy bedding that you can get. For decoration, we recommend the accent throw pillows and lighting that is a bright color, like pink or bright yellow.

Floral pattern is a girl’s best friend, next to diamonds of course. This look will be the talk of your floor, and maybe even the campus. This floral bedding will also last you until graduation. So, you can repeat this look throughout your four - or two - years of college. Take a look at how to buy this look!

If you are a minimalist, and enjoy preppy styles, you might want to copy this look. With so many options, you will regret missing out on this style if you don’t act now! Instead of a colorful comforter set for this look, try out a simple solid comforter that you can place over your bed for simple bedding. For decorations, a throw blanket, a hanging plant, a school sign, and some pillows will complete this look.

Gray can also be preppy

Inspired by @bails.c on Instagram.

Gray is one of those colors we normally don’t consider to be preppy, but with a touch of simple neutral colors (here's a palette of neutral colors for inspiration if you want to go beyond the classic black, white, and beige), and of course pink, we are right on our way to designing the perfect dorm room for you. Now, for this look, there are plenty of tips and tricks we can recommend to achieve the right look for you at an affordable price. Like other dark colors, and some neutrals, gray can be an easy color to match up any other shade of color with. You just need to find the colors that suit you the most, especially for a preppy styled room. For bedding, pick a solid. A nice storage trunk can be used as a nightstand, and having as many pillows and wall hangings as possible will really make your room the ultimate rival on campus.

Dream in technicolor

If you are preppy, it is somewhat mandatory to like pairing dark colors with brights. Truth be told though, not all darks and brights go together, but if you work on attention to detail, you will be ready to set your room up. For you to achieve this look, you can do a lot with the bedding and walls. We recommend using fun shaped pillows, wall art, a throw blanket, some storage space, a simple tapestry, and peel off wallpaper. Be sure to pick a fun, colorful print for your bedding to bring it all together.

Yes, wallpaper that you can peel off is actually a thing! And, it truly is a convenient thing to have, especially since you are not allowed to paint the walls or change them into something that fits your style more than blank white walls. So, treat these walls as your canvas and really consider applying your own touch, whether it’s with wall art or adhesive wallpaper that you can stick and place on walls.

These looks are not just for any normal college student looking for dorming essentials, all of these looks are for the one that desires to have a room that speaks their personality as a prep. With these preppy styles, we want you to not only feel inspired, but to also know that these styles are always on trend and they are reusable as well, so you won’t have to spend a lot each time you purchase something new for your dorm. With all of these dorming essentials, there are a multitude of ways to make you feel passionate and appreciate the small space in your dorm room.

We want you to feel at home in your dorm, even when you are having trouble finding your personality. These preppy dorm rooms are the rivals you would want to see on campus, and they are the room decorations that everyone will want to see and talk about, even in the cafeteria. These pieces are all fashionable, and are only a click away. So, let’s get our fingers ready, and start shopping your preppy dorm room today!
