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.

Forget “less is more”, it’s time to embrace the gloriousness of organized chaos, also known as “cluttercore.” Cluttercore essentially is a continuation of the popular cottagecore trend, but designed to maximize your space with even more decor. The idea of cluttercore is to make your room feel cozy and comforting with more personal items, objects, collections—the possibilities are endless. To help you maximize your own cluttercore dorm room, our guide offers several helpful tips as well as products to perfectly suit the cluttercore aesthetic!

What are the key elements of a cluttercore themed room?

  • Several layers and textures
  • Quirky, kitsch displays of artwork, posters, photographs, etc.
  • Antique and vintage furniture
  • Indoor plants
  • Floral patterns
  • Bold, multicolored patterns
  • Mixing of other themes, styles, and time periods

How to Create Your Own Cluttercore Aesthetic

An important part of creating a cluttercore aesthetic is to find your own unique style. Consider these steps that will help you embrace your cluttered space into one that is cozy and special to you!

Look for inspiration

Check out some cluttercore Pinterest boards, online blogs, or Instagram pages to see how others are embracing this room aesthetic. Then, you can go and personalize your own cluttered space. 

Embrace Kitsch

Kitsch is a German word that roughly translates to “tacky.” The word is often used to describe items to be overly bold and attractively fun. One way to create your own cluttercore is to incorporate the Kitsch style, by styling decor with bright colors, unique patterns, and items that exude a quirky charm. 

Mix and match 

Decide whether you want different colors, textures, and patterns you want to mix into your room decor. Or if you want to create a cluttered aesthetic with a bit more visual correspondence, designate one particular color or pattern for the entire room and show an abundance of it. Mix and match to what fits your personality, to make for a unique bedroom. 

Create different displays and vignettes

With a cluttercore aesthetic, you can culminate several aesthetics in one room by setting up different displays around your room. For example, one corner could give off a cottagecore aesthetic, while another area can show off a dreamscape aesthetic. 

Stay organized

There is a fine line between cluttercore and a messy room. Make sure to find that line when it comes to creating your cluttercore room so that you aren’t overdoing the chaos. This could be by making sure there is a designated place for each item or investing in some storage containers to put away unappealing objects that don’t go with your look.
