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!

We’ve reached college decision day for 2021 -- this is when high school seniors announce where they will be headed to college in the fall. You’ve spent the last four years of high school working hard, volunteering, holding jobs, being involved in sports and extracurriculars all to make yourself look great on a college application.

The good news is, you’ve made your decision, you know where you’ll be going to college, and the secret is finally out! Now is the time to relax and enjoy all of the fun that comes with heading off to college. 

You’ll spend this summer making sure you’re fully prepared to move out of the house and into your dorm room. This will require a checklist of supplies that is usually provided by your college. The basics are -- bedding and bath items, toiletries, laundry, storage, kitchen equipment, electronics, desk supplies, and decor. 

As a kid or maybe even in high school you had dreams of redecorating your bedroom to match the version of yourself that you’ve grown into since your parents decorated your childhood room. Now you can do this with your dorm room! You’re in control -- you can design it the way you’ve always wanted and you can let your personality shine. 

White bedding has been trending recently and we know you’ll want it to have a place in your dorm room. White gives us comfy, cozy, stay in bed all day vibes. Transport yourself to cloud 9 and enjoy a semester of ultimate comfort with plush, white decor that can be upgraded by pops of other colors. 

Here are our top picks in white bedding: 

  • Comforters and Sheets
  • Throws and Accent Pillows
  • Headboards 

Comforters and Sheets

Every perfect dorm room starts with your comforter. It is the centerpiece of your room! It’s the first thing everyone will see when they come visit your room -- they’ll look around and immediately see your comforter. 

So, you want to make the best decision here. Since you’re going off to college -- you’re shopping for Twin XL bedding. This is your standard twin bed, just longer to accommodate taller sleepers. Make sure everything you buy is in this size or it’s not going to fit. 

What we love about this comforter is the reversible design. One side reminds us of a puffy cloud we want to jump into and take a nap while the other side is white with a gray floral pattern. So, if you ever get tired of one side, flip it to the other for an instant room change. Either way, you’re still getting that beautiful and elegant solid white that matches everything. 

When designing your dorm room, you want to make sure your personality is coming through. We know it’s overwhelming to shop for so many items, but it’s important that your room is a reflection of your personal style. 

This could be you, surrounded by fluffy white bedding -- ultimate coziness!

Adjusting to college may be a breeze or a struggle depending on what type of person you are. If you’re the adventurous type who’s been waiting for a new journey, you might not have any issue adjusting. But if you’re a homebody who’s apprehensive about leaving, then it might take a few weeks to feel completely comfortable living on campus. 

The good news is -- your dorm room can make the adapting process much easier. This is because if you feel comfortable in your dorm room, you’ll feel comfortable at college. Unless you’re in class or out exploring the campus with new friends, chances are you’ll be spending a lot of time in your dorm. 

Because of this, your dorm should be a place where you can escape and feel comfortable. If your bedding and decor make you cringe, you’re not going to feel good about your living space. If you have items that reflect your personality, then you’ll find that your dorm and your college campus will start to feel like home. 

So, do yourself a favor and pick out items that make you feel good -- items that you’d want in your room at home. You’ll be living here for the next 10 months, so it’s a good idea to make your dorm room your home away from home. 

You can start by picking out a beautiful white comforter that screams cozy! 

If you’ve chosen an all white comforter, break up the single color by adding a pattern with your sheet set. Adding a pop of color will offset the solid white and make everything look perfectly put together. 

You can also get a solid color sheet set to put underneath your white comforter, then add pops of this color through the rest of your decor! 

Throws and Accent Pillows 

We love this throw blanket because it looks like a gorgeous marble cloud that will make your room look regal and luxurious! Marble is in right now and has been appearing in dorms across the country. 

The look is one reason to love this blanket, but the soft fleece texture is literally reminiscent of a cloud. If you needed a napping buddy -- this is your blanket. When draped over your bed, chair, futon, or even you -- this blanket commands presence and looks showstopping! 

We know that throw blankets have to put in the extra work -- they are used for napping, studying at your desk, for movie nights in another room when everyone brings their own blanket, and more. You might even take it to a late night study session at the library or a chilly football game. We suggest getting at least two because these blankets are so heavily used. 

Here’s another tip for freshman year -- introduce a hallway open door policy and include a few conversation pieces in your dorm room. This is a fast and effective way of making new friends! Why? Well because if your door is always open, then students will take that to mean they can just walk right in and say hello. 

Ice breakers can be awkward and make everyone feel like the conversation is forced. But when you have an amazing decor item or statement throw blanket, the conversation comes naturally because you start by talking about it, then the next thing you know -- you’re on a completely different topic! 

If you are worried about making friends in college, this method will definitely help and at the very least, you’ll get to know everyone who lives on your floor!

This thick knit square pillow is an ultimate statement of cozy -- perfect to match our cloud 9 theme. You won’t have any problem falling asleep with this pillow on your bed! The color is ivory, or a little off white. When paired together, different shades of white become naturally harmonious. 

That’s not to mention different fabrics and textures become naturally harmonious too. We suggest playing around with different shades and textures to find what looks great together. 

Or if you’re looking for solid white, dreamy angelic bedding, you can do that as well. 

You’ll see ottomans across many dorm rooms on campus. The reason for this is because dorm rooms are small and often lack storage space. As a result, many students elect to loft their beds in order to gain storage space under their bed. 

For all our shorties out there, an ottoman is a great boost to getting into bed (literally)! Not only is an ottoman functional, but also lets everyone know you have unmatched taste in decor. The faux fur exudes luxury and warmth. The texture is dreamy and inviting -- plus if you’re looking for extra seating to host guests, this is a great way to achieve that goal. 

Creating your dorm room is all about finding innovative ways to make single items multifunctional and this ottoman is a great example! It serves as a helper for getting into bed, extra seating, and a statement piece that’ll have everyone asking where you got it! 

Blankets and throws are a great way to decorate your room and add another level of personality. Tell everyone you live in a dreamy cloud that exudes comfort with these pieces.

Headboards

Headboards are often an overlooked dorm room accessory -- but really they serve a great purpose in your room. They tie your entire bed together while also making your room look complete and put together. 

On a chilly night, your headboard will help trap heat, keeping you warm and cozy all night long! With lofted beds -- your pillow is always falling off the bed. Waking up in the middle of a night to find your pillow on the floor is a nightmare. Eliminate this issue with a headboard and ensure your pillow is always in the right spot. 

This faux leather headboard looks sophisticated and will instantly enhance the comfort of your space. If you’re studying in bed late at night, this headboard will also serve as a great back support, keeping you propped and comfortable. 

It will also blend with any other colors you want to have in your dorm. If your goal is to accomplish a white on white color scheme, look no further. This headboard combined with a white comforter, and white accent pillows, patterned sheets and throw blanket will transport your room to cloud 9! 

When designing your future dorm room for this fall, make sure to include all elements of your personality. This will have your dorm room feeling like home in no time! Be sure to include different textures, pops of color, and shop white -- instant transportation to cloud 9!
