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.

Designing a bedroom takes a lot of planning. You have to think about the furniture arrangements, available space, organization, and most importantly the color scheme. When it comes to the easiest color to decorate with, you can’t go wrong with grey. Although grey is sometimes considered a boring color to incorporate into a room, it can create a very sophisticated and mature vibe that lends to a simplified design and space that’s perfect for your first dorm room or college apartment.

Another great quality of grey is how compatible it is with various color schemes. When you choose grey as your base decorating color, you can pair it with whatever other accent colors you choose. If you love blue, throw a beautiful blue throw on your bed, or maybe you want your room to be pretty in pink--that can work too. 

There are plenty of tips and tricks that go into decorating with grey and making sure the room doesn’t have a dull feeling. Some of the best tricks involve picking out furniture and decor that brighten the room while still contributing to the overall sophistication of the color scheme.
