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.

Your college dorm is the one place at school that you can truly make your own and decorate it however you want to. Your dorm room is your own personal space at school, (aside from maybe your roommate’s as well) and is someplace where you not only want to feel at home but you also probably want it to reflect your personal style. 

Maybe your parents wouldn’t let you decorate your room the way you wanted to when growing up or you never really discovered your style until later, after your room was already decorated in hot pink or lime green (trust us, no one misses the early 2000 trends). Well, this is your chance to change that and really let your creative side shine through in your room. 

But with the freedom of decorating your space how you want it to be also comes with a little bit of added pressure. If you’re living in a dorm, whether this is your first year in college and you want to make a good impression, or you’re known for your fun style and you’re trying to uphold tradition with your room this year, you want others to like your room. Well don’t worry, because we’ve got the tips you need to make your room the envy of your dorm hall. 

Just because you want your room to appeal to others in your dorm hall doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your style and what you like. With these 5 dorm ideas, we’ll help you make your room trendy and fashionable while still staying true to your personal style this school year. So let’s get into the dorm ideas for girls we’re sure you will love. 

1. A Good Bedspread is Essential

Chances are your bed will probably be the biggest thing in your dorm room, making it the most noticeable. So why not make your bed a statement piece in your room this year? Choosing a bedspread you love is essential to ensuring you will like your room all school year long. Your bedspread can set the theme for your room, so picking the right bedspread is an essential part of decorating your room. 

There are several ways you can go with your bedspread and each depends on your style preferences. You can go for a bold bedspread that has plenty of designs and colors, or you can take a more plain route with a simple white bedspread or muted colored one. The choice is up to you, which is also what makes it so exciting. You can also opt for a reversible comforter so you can change your look whenever you want.

If you opt to go with a more simple bedding choice, then decorative pillows are where you can really go wild and let your creativity show. Decorative pillows can be textured, colored, or have printed pictures and sayings on them. Decorative pillows can dress up any room and can really tie your room look together. There are plenty of ways you can style throw pillows to make your room special. 

If you choose a busier comforter option, then going with decorative pillows that match the color scheme of your comforter make the patterns stand out more. Decorative pillows are also great because they look good on your bed and can also tie in your futon to the rest of your room, giving it that extra edge to make your room look put together. 

Dormify has plenty of cute decorative pillows to choose from on their site; we’re sure you’ll find one you love! 

3. Wall Art is the Key to Showcasing Your Creativity in Your Dorm Room

Wall art has a fun way of taking your room to the next level. Chances are your dorm room won’t allow you to paint your room, but that doesn’t mean you have to be stuck with just plain, boring white walls all school year long. Picking out the right wall art can showcase your personality and really make your room the space you imagine in your head. 

When picking out wall art, you can choose a large piece to be the focal point and surround it with smaller photos, either ones that go with the large print or pictures of your friends and family. Or, you can go the artsy direction and create a collage of different wall art pieces to hang on your walls. Wall art can really make a statement in your room and it’s something that people are sure to remember. 

You can find a variety of wall prints on Dormify that will give your room that extra flare you’re looking for.
