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!

Botanicals, boho, coachella, animal prints, earth tones, natural colors come to life in the new Desert Dreams collection. Recently, earth tones have become all the rage with home and bedroom decor.

There are a few reasons for this. They mix well together, they help our brains connect to nature and overall make us feel good, they are easy to incorporate into a different color scheme, and lastly -- they never go out of style. 

Earth tones are derived from things we see in everyday life -- green leaves, brown soil, rust colored bark, the sky, and the sun. Science has proven that your brain connects to nature in a way that is beneficial for your mental health and overall well being. Being in nature improves memory, boosts mood and feelings of positivity, it helps us slow down and relieve negative emotions like anxiety and impulsivity. 

Earth tones are also naturally beautiful to look at -- we like them because we like what we see in the natural world. They mix well in any color scheme and look beautiful on their own, as many already know, neutral colors go with everything and earth tones form a large portion of this color palette. 

If you’ve been loving the reemergence of earth tones and have been looking to redo your room this summer or buy new decor for your dorm room next year -- look no further. 

Pick out some beautiful new pieces and invite nature inside to liven up your room. Here are the bedding and decor items that will transform your space: 

  • Bedding 
  • Throws and Accent Pillows
  • Decor 

Bedding 

Bring Coachella vibes to your bedroom with this palm tree reversible to white comforter. 

Are you a plant lover or do you just enjoy botanical themed bedding and decor? With the recent rise in popularity of earth tones, plants have become increasingly popular -- especially in dorm rooms. 

In fact, nearly all of the items in the desert dreams collection are surrounded by plants in the photos. Why? Well what’s better to compliment earthy themed decor than actual nature itself! 

This cozy soft white comforter gives us stay in bed all day vibes. The delicate palm trees are perfectly placed for cool coachella energy. The comforter is reversible to a clean, vibrant white -- if you get bored of the palm trees or if you want a clean look to match other bold decor items and colors. 

We know this comforter would look great surrounded by plants in your door room so let’s talk about dorm room plants! Here are some of the best greenery possibilities for your room: 

  • Lucky Bamboo 
  • Succulents 
  • Snake Plant 
  • ZZ Plant 
  • Pothos 
  • Bromeliad 
  • Aloe Vera 
  • Money Tree
  • Ponytail Palm
  • Peace Lily

We know that busy college students don’t have significant amounts of time to spend tending to plants, especially needy ones with lots of growth requirements. This is why most of the plants we listed are relatively easy to care for and some are even kill proof!

For example, lucky bamboo lives in water -- so you only have to worry about filling up the jar when you notice the water level is low! Succulents thrive best with infrequent waterings. Aloe, succulents, and palms all love bright light and will make a perfect addition to your window. Others like pothos, bromeliads, ZZ plants, and snake plants can tolerate low, medium, and high levels of light making them perfect for any dorm room. If you need a new addition to your desk, try your hand at a plant! 

We promise these plants will be easy to care for and many have positive benefits for your dorm including air purification and acting as a natural humidifier. In stuffy dorm rooms with little air circulation, this is exactly what you need! 

Bring a new, earthy comforter in your room and offset it with a beautiful new plant to make the perfect coachella atmosphere. You can even give your new plant a name!

Throws and Accent Pillows

Animal print makes a comeback from the 2000’s with this adorable giraffe print throw blanket. 

Decorating your dorm room is super important! If you went into college buying the most basic items just to check them off your list -- you might regret it. Sure, it saved you headaches at the time, but you might have realized the items you bought feel out of place. 

There’s a reason why so many students take the time to individually select the bedding and decor they will feature in their rooms. This is because they want to personalize their rooms. We’re guessing that your bedroom at home is a reflection of you and your dorm room shouldn’t be any different. It should be a personal statement that reflects your style. 

When your dorm room includes pieces that reflect your personality, you will feel more comfortable in your space. This is exactly why you should decorate to your heart's desire! The less comfortable you feel in your dorm room, the less like home it’s going to feel overtime. This will make it harder to adjust and no one wants to feel out of place in their own room. 

If this happens to be the case for you, it’s time to redecorate! Out with the old and in with the new. If you’re just getting ready to head off to college next fall -- we can’t stress this enough, make sure you love what’s going into your new room. The more at home you feel, the easier it will be for you to enjoy college and make it feel like a home away from home. After all, you have to live there for the majority of the year. 

Back to this beautiful giraffe print blanket -- we’re loving the natural look in combination with the fringed ends. Animal print meets style in this throw blanket. 

In your dorm room, you can’t have too many throw blankets. Students usually like to have one on their bed within arms reach to curl up with for a quick nap. Some like to have one at their desk when they study. Others will keep one in their backpack and take it to the library while they hunker down and study for a final exam. We suggest at least one, and this giraffe throw will make the perfect addition!

Sunny, neutral, earthy vibes with this accent pillow that leaves us feeling cool and mellow.

This accent pillow is giving us sun, sand, and bohemian vibes. This is the epitome of desert dreams. If you’re looking for the perfect accent pillow to add to your bed -- this could be the one. Or it could make a great upgrade to your desk chair or futon. Say goodbye to back pain! 

The best part is, every purchase of one of these items will send a portion of the proceeds to the artist who created it! This will keep the collections coming and the ideas flowing. 

Decor 

Painted by a world renowned artist or wall art for your room? A beautiful decor print that will effortlessly upgrade your space. 

Last but not least we have decor. After you’ve picked out the bedding and the accents, it’s time to move to the decor. This piece is serving botanicals, earth tones, and natural beauty. It looks like it’s been painted by a classical artist, but really it’s a print that can live right on your wall. 

If you’re in need of decor, this could make the perfect statement. How could anyone not get lost in that captivating stare! We don’t know. 

Decor items are responsible for tying the room together. They are the finishing touch. After all, dorm rooms are four solid white walls and no one wants to look at those for months. You’ll definitely be wanting to hang tapestries, posters, wall art, lights, and maybe even your own personal art! 

Trust us when we say put effort into your walls, you’ll thank us later! 

Desert birds and botanicals make this coffee mug a delicate and beautiful addition to your mug collection. 

Does your Keurig need a new companion? This mug features desert birds and plants could be the perfect addition. We know that many of you are mug collectors and what’s better than getting a new one -- especially for your college dorm. 

Sometimes it’s hard to find time to get to the barista before class. You might have gotten up late and feel sluggish or you had to finish a last minute assignment before heading out. Sometimes students don’t make it in time and they’re stuck in line while their class is starting! Having your own coffee maker and mug takes this problem out of the equation. 

If you’re into small details, you will love the small earth tone accent in this little mug! We think this will make a great pairing with a room decorated around natural tones. Not to mention the adorable cactus in the background. They even grow flowers too! 

If you’re looking to redecorate your room or you’re in the market to design your freshman dorm, the desert dreams collection is delivering on everything we’ve been looking for -- bedding, accents, and decor! You can build your entire room with this collection.
