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!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

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.

Are you getting ready to head back to college for the school year and you’re in need of some inspiration on how you want your dorm room to look? Or, maybe you’re just looking for a dorm room refresh to make your room feel a little more like you. We get it; that’s why we’re here to help you with all of your dorm room decorating needs.

When it comes to decorating (or redecorating) your dorm room the most important first step to make sure your room has a cohesive flow to it and exhibits that “put together” look is to start by picking a theme—or figuring out what your personal aesthetic is. There are many different aesthetics out there and picking one is half the fun.

Your dorm room aesthetic can match what your normal preferences are, or you can try something new; college is all about getting out of your comfort zone so what better time to try on a new aesthetic than when decorating your dorm room? After you choose a theme for your room it is easier to find decor and pieces that all match this “vibe” so that you’re left with a room that looks like it makes sense.

But how do you know which aesthetic is the one that matches your personality? Whether you think you have a good idea of what your personal style is, you’re interested in trying something new, or you just know what you like but you aren’t sure if there is a name for it, we’ve gathered 4 cute dorm room aesthetics to help you pick which one fits you the best.

So if you’re interested in decorating your dorm room to fit a certain look or aesthetic this school year, then you’ve come to the right place. Let’s take a look at the 4 dorm room aesthetics we’re loving for the school year right now; we’re sure you’ll love at least one of them! 

1. The Clean Girl Aesthetic Meets Minimalism

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year or you are one of the few people out there who has yet to download TikTok (we’re not judging, we’re actually a little jealous) then you’ve probably had a few videos of the “clean girl” aesthetic pop up on your feed every now and then. But what is the clean girl aesthetic exactly? 

Typically when someone is talking about the clean girl aesthetic they are referring to the clean and freshly showered look that many people are trying to achieve with light makeup, slicked back hair, and simple clothing that centers on being cozy and comfortable, while also somehow being fashionable. But, what if we told you that you could also take this look and apply it to your dorm room?

Chances are you’ve heard of minimalism, but have you ever considered adopting this way of life to your dorm room? Minimalistic style is basically simplifying your space, refusing to hold onto junk, and creating a space that is airy, clean, and simple; all aspects that seem to fit the clean girl aesthetic too. So if you’ve been loving the clean girl look for your clothes and makeup routines, then give minimalism a try for this coming school year.

2. Adapt Your Boho Look for Your Dorm Room

Bohemian styles are popular for both clothing and room decor 

Boho is one of the most popular aesthetics for, well, pretty much anything. There’s a reason why the boho trend is so widely adapted and you might even have a love of the boho style without ever really knowing that this is the trend that fits your personal style. So what exactly is boho and why might this trend be a good fit for you?

The boho style can mean a bunch of different things and can be adapted in many different ways which is why you might already have this style preference and not even know it. But essentially, creating a space that fits the boho profile can be broken down into a few different categories. You just have to know what to look for in order to create this look.

The boho style typically consists of differing textures that don’t seem like they go together but somehow make sense. You can really play around with your natural side here with earth toned comforters and more muted colors. Think earthy tones and textures that give that “I don’t care but this makes sense” vibe. You know the one we’re talking about.

3. Fun and Flirty Neon Gets a Makeover

When decorating your dorm room, or any space really, people often tend to stay away from bold colors. This can be for many reasons, from not wanting to make the space look too small to being worried you’ll become sick of the bright colors after a while. And trust us, we get it; picking a neon aesthetic for your room is not for the faint of heart. 

Ever walked out of the movie theaters and been blinded by the shock of bright lighting? We imagine that’s what having an all neon room is like when you wake up in the morning after a night out. But just because a neon aesthetic is a bold choice doesn’t mean it has to be unachievable. If done right, neon can be a fun and flirty room theme that is perfect for anyone with a unique style.

You can either go full-blown neon with blinding colors everywhere (your roommate might disagree but go for it!) or you can add neon accents throughout your room to really make it pop. You can do this with brightly colored accent pillows, a vibrant comforter, or with the lighting in your room like a fun neon sign or colored wall lights to spice up your space.

4. Go Big With a Maximalist Approach 

From patterns to colors, maximalism allows you to have it all

Maximalism is a unique style that has been gaining popularity for some time now. Basically the opposite of the minimalist approach, maximalism focuses on hanging onto those cool pieces that you find at the thrift store so you can display them. Maximalism is all about colors, accent pieces, and patterns.  

While your dorm room might not be the place to hoard all of your life’s possessions (you do have a roommate), you can still achieve a maximalist look without having a million trinkets junking up your space. Maximalism can be achieved with wall art, bedding, desk decor, and other aspects that will help your space reflect your style. 

Removable wallpaper is now a thing for dorm rooms, so pick one that you love and really give your room that unique makeover you’ve been craving. Or, incorporate a wall collage or hang an accent piece on your wall that will really catch your eye. Maximalism is such a fun aesthetic because you really can’t go wrong with it. It’s all about what you love and displaying it.
