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!

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.

Agreeing to live in a dorm room that comes with all of the standard amenities, doesn’t mean that you have to stick with standard, boring bedding that probably pops up a lot of the time when you go to search for Twin XL bedding.

Keep it Cute with Your Standard Dorm Twin XL Bedding

If you’re in the market for something fairly standard and classic, that’s absolutely fine, but that doesn’t mean that you have to shy away from making your dorm room as personalized as you want to. Make it cute! Make it funky! However you’ve always dreamed of designing your dorm room, it’s entirely possible if you’re looking in the right places.

These are some of our favorite Twin XL bedding looks on the internet right now to help inspire you as you create a space that’s all your own.

Funky Florals

Bold Floral Prints Inspired by @karrinapullano

If you’re a bold person and you’re looking to express that through your dorm decor, you don’t just have to keep that boldness confined to art on the wall and decorative pillows. If you want, you can easily find a bold print to accurately portray just how bold you are in the form of some bedding to act as a statement piece. If you’d like to bring in some femininity, we recommend incorporating some florals.

Whether you’re making your dorm room bedding stand out with bold colors or bold prints (or both), you can easily turn it into something that’s both cute and personalized. Here, they’ve taken bold floral patterns and used a comforter with brightly colored flowers printed over a black and white base.

Glamorous Grey

Cozy Monochrome Decor Inspired by @bails.c

Even if you’d prefer to stick with some simple colors rather than diving deep into color theory to find colors that look great together, that doesn’t mean that you need to sacrifice on any cuteness when you’re using those simple colors. Bring some personality to your dorm room decor by adding some pretty colors to your walls, easy color combos to your bedding, and some fun textures to your bedding that will add some extra layers to your dorm room overall.

Here, they’ve kept it pretty simple with some grey and white white bedding, choosing a grey that’s somewhere in the middle of light and dark with a slightly metallic sheen. Using the same greys, they’ve mixed and matched some different textures throughout different layers of the bedding, which is a great way for you to personalize your room.

Don't forget to add cozy throw pillows for a little extra comfort (and a little extra texture) in your dorm room decor.

Head in the Clouds

Depending on where you’ve decided to go to school, there’s probably not always going to be the kind of weather that brings you clear blue skies with the occasional puffy white cloud, but don't let bad weather get you down. Gray skies outside don't mean you can’t bring the blue skies and dreamy clouds to your dorm room decor. As long as you’re staying on top of your schoolwork, it’s perfectly okay for you to put your head in the clouds and daydream a little bit while you’re in college. 

But how do you bring the essence of a dreamy sunny day to your dorm room decor? Try using lots of light blues and whites to give the impression of a light blue sky with a little bit of white mixed in. To make it even more apparent, mix a few different textures together, using faux fur pillows that may remind you of the wispiness of a cirrus cloud or the puffiness of a cumulus one.

On the walls, consider adding a little extra lighting with star-shaped LED lights, as well as LED string lights, giving off a light glow that’s reminiscent of sunshine (as long as you’re not looking directly at it). The faux white shag rug on the floor rounds out the look, making it feel like you’re situated directly on top of a cloud.

Light in the Dark

Black and White Dorm Decor Inspired by @juwleea

Not every dorm room is designed with a theme in mind, but if you’re looking for a classic theme that will really make your dorm room something all your own, consider sticking with something that incorporates light and dark colors into one design. Black and white are a classic combination, but you could also shake things up a bit by using navy and light grey as your dark and light colors.

Here, they have stuck to the classic black and white, with touches of grey thrown into the mix to create a look that is both timeless and easily gender neutral. They’ve placed the bed against a black headboard, using white sheets with  on a grey throw to act as the “light” in this room.

Perfect Prints

Mixed Print Dorm Bedding Inspired by @janie_altman

Designing your dorm room to be something that’s truly unique to you doesn’t have to be particularly complicated. You can show your personality through so many different design aspects, whether they be the colors, textures, or specific prints that you use in your bedding, or even the artwork or decor that you incorporate into the look. 

Here, they’ve done a little bit of both of these, mixing and matching the patterns that they’ve used in their bedding, the textures of the pillows that they’ve added to create a little pillow wall on their bed, and even the splashes of colors that they’ve added.

In the same realm, they’ve mixed and matched the textures on the bed by using cloth pillows mixed with faux fur pillows and cotton sheets. To top it off, they’ve added some feminine touches through splashes of pinkas their wall art, as well as a luxurious tufted headboard.

Shopping for Twin XL bedding isn’t always easy, but since that’s probably the size of bed that you’ll have to find sheets for when you go to move into your college dorm, you might want to start planning ahead. You can make your dorm room bedding into something that’s both cute and uniquely yours. You just have to know where to look.
