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.

Ah, the wonders of college dorm shopping. There are endless options out there, and it can be hard to narrow down what exactly it is you want when it comes to decorating your room, your bed, your desk.

Red Bedding

For guys, you might want a more sedate kind of color scheme. But at the same time you don’t want to plaster your room in blacks and grays. 

Red, then, is the color for you. It comes in all kinds of shades and potency. If you want to go for a darker shade you can bank on that opportunity, but if you want to go with a more eye-popping scarlet or crimson that’ll work just as well for you.

Now, if you’re afraid of putting too much color into your dorm then the best thing to do is to center the color you have into one space. Your bed is a great option for this. A centerpiece for the room, and if you leave everything else to some less bold colors it won’t look out of place.

Below are the best red bedding sets, including comforters, sheets, and blankets from OCM as well as some other red-inspired bedroom essentials that you just might want to take a look at.

  • The Dawn College Minimalist Bundle
  • All-U-Need microfiber comforter
  • Red sheets, microfiber sheet set
  • Add on some accent pillows
  • Starter Pak - bed and bath set
  • A storage trunk for all your bedding
Not big on bold patterns? This is the bundle you should buy. 

The Dawn College Minimalist Bundle 

Do you want all of the bed set-up essentials without all of the hassle? There’s no need to go out and buy separate sets of sheets, pillows, blankets, and comforters when you can get them all in one place for a pretty good price.

The Dawn College Minimalist Bundle has all of these things included for a Twin XL sized bed that comes with most college dorms. Get your comforter, sheet, pillow case, pillow, mattress pad, and a plush blanket without having to go through the hassle of shopping for them separately. 

This bundle, lucky for you, comes in a bright and bold red color. Your comforter is the star, and with the accompanying white pillowcases and sheets it sets up a nice red and white rappor in your bed theme.

If you want something simple and easy, this should be your bedding of choice when it comes time to shop.

What if you have all the sheets and pillows you need? Buy this comforter by itself, no strings attached.

On the reverse side, what if you want to mix and match with your sheets? Do the sheets and pillows in the Dawn College Minimalist set not play to your taste? Not to worry, you don’t have to get everything included if you don’t want to.

Instead, get the comforter on its own and work on your bed’s theme from there! It’s a more flexible option for those looking to get creative.

Now, you have this bright red comforter. What should you be doing with it? What other colors are best to go with this? There are plenty of routes you can go, from the most flamboyant, to soft and safe options.

Colors opposite of each other go great together if you want a more loud option. Now green and red will definitely make your room look like Santa Claus’ toy factory in the north pole, so instead try for a bold blue! 

Or you could always play by the “less is more” rule. By having less red in your room then you’re drawing attention to the spots of it you already have. Let the bed be red by itself, and use other more neutral colors elsewhere. 

Want to keep your red under the covers? Try investing in some red sheets. 

Red Sheets, microfiber sheet set 

You’ve been reading all about red covers, red comforters, all things that stand out on the outside of your bed. But what if you don’t want something so bold? You still like the color, but you don’t need it on display for everyone to see.

The solution is easy, try some red sheets instead. Dark red sheets, more in the brick or rose-petal color are the best bet.

OCM’s microfiber sheet set comes with the perfect shade of red you need, in a sheet, a fitted sheet, and a pillowcase to match if you want to set up your pillow in this color as well. A perfect option, you can get another set in a different color if you’d like as well.

But if you’re going to plaster your sheets in all things red, what should your comforter look like? With a red this dark you shouldn’t match it with anything too light. Sticking with a black or gray bedspread is the best option for this to stay in theme. The same goes for any accent pillows you might buy.

Add on some accent pillows

So you have your bed all set up. Your comforter, your sheets, your pillows. All the basics are locked down. What else do you need? Well, technically you don’t need anything else but accent pillows do wonders for the look of your room.

When buying accent pillows it’s important to pay attention to your color scheme, so that you don’t overdo it on one color. If you buy everything in red, then your bed is going to look oversaturated and a little spooky to be honest.

So what color accent pillows should you buy? Neutrals are always a good option when it comes to decorating. Blacks, grays, whites, all of these will serve you and your red color scheme well. 

Or if you want to go for a more bold and beachy look you could always lean into the “sunrise” route. Invest in some oranges and yellows, like a fire almost. Drawing in attention, making its presence known. 

This is a brighter option, not for the faint of heart, but it can perk up a dreary dorm room and its boring white walls with some cool-looking accent pillow. 

A two-in-one deal, bed and bath supplies come together for a great price. 

Starter Pak - bed and bath set 

Going to college, you learn very soon that you should be saving money. College isn’t free, and it’s better to cut on expenses and save a few bucks when it comes to making purchases. So, buying all of your supplies separately might not be the way to go for you.

Good thing that OCM has a bed and bath set, complete with necessities you’ll need for both places in your dorm, with a bedspread that comes in not one, not two, but three cool and classic red patterns.

There are two plaid options, one with red as its base, and the other with white. They’re the kinds of bedding that you could find anywhere, which isn’t a bad thing. Sometimes you want to stick with what you’re comfortable with. Plaid is cozy, and it’s hard to clash with when it comes to simple pattern making. 

The other option is a solid red bedspread, another easy option. But, of course, the best thing about this bundle is that you get the bath supplies with it and you can save money on having to go out and get those separately. 

You get all the towels you need for the bathroom, whether you have your own private one or a public bathroom. Two towels, matching hand towels, and washcloths. 

A storage trunk for all your bedding 

Just in case no one has already told you, you’re going to need more than one set of sheets and pillowcases when you head off to college. 

You should be washing your sheets every one to two weeks. This isn’t a must, most people go on washing their sheets every three weeks or so, but it is a very clean habit to get into preventing breakouts on your skin. 

So where are you going to store these extra sheets and blankets and things? Well, a storage trunk would serve you well, and if you get the right one it can look pretty cool in your room as a decorative piece as well. 

OCM sells storage trunks in a wide variety of colors and styles. You can get a traditional one, that opens flat on the floor, or you can get one more in the shape of a cube that takes up less space if you’re working with a small room. 

The red option is a real-eyecatcher, if you’re feeling bold this should be the color you choose to buy. It’ll make for a great trunk, a sitting spot, and a nice complement to your red bedspread. 

If red is the color for you, go for it. There are plenty of bed options featuring the color. 

This all might seem overwhelming. Matching colors, taking colors away, don’t do this, make sure you do that. All in all, as long as you find a bedspread that you like, that’s comfortable for you and your needs you’ll be fine.

You can decorate your room however you like, whatever is your taste. If you’re a fan of red, lean into the color! If you just want to try it, then hopefully one of the suggestions offered in this article will appeal to you and your college dorm journey.
