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 tired of the same old, boring room decor? Do you dream of a space that oozes personality and rebellion? If you're a fan of indie music and the gritty allure of the underground scene, it's time to consider decorating your room in an indie sleaze style. This edgy and eclectic aesthetic draws inspiration from punk rock, grunge, and the counterculture movements of the past, creating a space that's uniquely yours. We’re going to show you just how easy it is to infuse your room with the rebellious spirit of indie sleaze.

Vintage Vibes

To truly immerse yourself in the world of indie sleaze, you'll want to start by infusing your space with vintage vibes. This is the foundation upon which the entire aesthetic is built. The allure of vintage pieces lies in their history, their imperfections, and the stories they carry with them. It's about finding beauty in the worn, the weathered, and the well-loved.

Head to your local thrift shops, antique stores, and flea markets, where you'll embark on a treasure hunt unlike any other. Here, you'll discover a world of unique finds that embody the spirit of rebellion and individuality. Seek out distressed wooden tables with character etched into every scratch and groove. Collect quirky, mismatched chairs that tell their own tales of eras past.

These vintage pieces aren't just furniture--they're a bridge to the past, a tangible connection to the counterculture movements that inspire the indie sleaze style. When you bring these treasures into your room, you're not just decorating--you're curating a space that exudes authenticity and rebellion, making it uniquely yours. In the world of indie sleaze, vintage vibes aren't just a style choice, they're a way of life.

Moody Color Palette

Indie sleaze style hinges on an evocative and moody color palette that sets the stage for your personal rebellion against the mundane. Gone are the days of sterile, cookie-cutter whites and bland neutrals; in their place, you'll embrace the deep, dark hues that define this edgy aesthetic.

Picture your room cloaked in the richness of burgundy, the enigmatic allure of forest green, and the mysterious depths of charcoal gray. These colors form the canvas upon which you'll paint your rebellious vision. They create an atmosphere that's equal parts intriguing and enigmatic, drawing you into a world of counterculture cool.

But don't stop there. Indie sleaze style thrives on the juxtaposition of dark, moody colors with bold, eye-catching accents. Inject bursts of neon or metallic shades to electrify the space. A neon sign hanging on the wall or a metallic accent piece can elevate the room's rebellious energy, catching the eye and leaving an indelible impression.

Consider painting one accent wall in a daring, attention-grabbing color—perhaps a fiery red or electric blue. This focal point becomes a visual centerpiece, a statement of your defiance against conformity.

The moody color palette of indie sleaze style is the emotional backdrop of your room, setting the tone for your personal rebellion and inviting you to embrace the unapologetically unconventional. Each shade tells a story, and together, they weave a narrative that's uniquely yours.

Eclectic Furnishings

Eclecticism is the heart and soul of indie sleaze style, and your choice of furnishings should be no exception. In this design approach, there are no strict rules to follow--instead, you're encouraged to embrace the unexpected and celebrate the diversity of your tastes.

Mix and match furniture pieces that, on the surface, might not seem to belong together. Combining a plush velvet chaise lounge with a distressed leather ottoman, or placing a chic crystal lamp atop a weathered, industrial-style coffee or side table, are all fair game. In fact, these unconventional pairings are precisely what give your room its distinctive charm.

The beauty of eclectic furnishings lies in their ability to create visual interest and depth. The room becomes a tapestry of textures, eras, and styles, each piece contributing to the overall narrative of rebellion and individuality. It's about celebrating the unique character of each item and showcasing your willingness to challenge conventional design norms.

This all of course depends on the sizing of your dorm, but if you’re lucky enough to snag a larger space on campus this year, don't shy away from that unusual find at the flea market or the vintage piece with a story to tell. In the world of indie sleaze, the most eclectic combinations often yield the most captivating results. Your room becomes a haven of creativity and self-expression, where every piece speaks to your unique style.

Record Player Nook

In the world of indie sleaze, music isn't just background noise--it's the heartbeat of rebellion and the soundtrack of your life. To pay homage to this crucial element, create a dedicated record player nook within your room. This cozy enclave serves as a sanctuary for vinyl enthusiasts and a visual centerpiece for your space.

Start by selecting a vintage record player that reflects your style and personality. Whether it's a classic turntable with a wooden finish or a sleek, modern design with all the bells and whistles, your choice should resonate with your love for music.

Position your record player on a sturdy, well-placed surface, such as a vintage sideboard or a custom-built stand. This not only provides a stable platform for your vinyl collection but also adds to the aesthetic charm of the nook.

Organize your vinyl records nearby, either in custom shelving or vintage crates. This not only makes your collection easily accessible but also showcases your musical taste. It's a functional and decorative touch that adds to the overall indie sleaze ambiance.

Consider adding comfortable seating—a plush chair or even a bean bag—for immersive listening sessions. Place a small side table within reach to hold a beverage or your current favorite record. Illuminating this nook with warm, dimmable lighting enhances the ambiance, creating an inviting space for introspective moments or intimate gatherings with friends.

The record player nook becomes more than just a place to play music--it's a shrine to your passion for indie sleaze music and an emblem of your rebellious spirit. It's where you immerse yourself in the songs that define your journey, where the crackle of vinyl on the turntable is a reminder that you're dancing to the beat of your own drum in a world of conformity.

Moody Lighting

Lighting plays a pivotal role in transforming the ambiance of your indie sleaze-inspired room. It's the subtle conductor of emotions, setting the stage for the rebellion and individuality that define this style. Moody lighting takes center stage, casting an evocative glow that invites you to explore the depths of your creative spirit.

Consider Edison bulbs, with their warm, amber-hued light, as your primary light source. These vintage-style bulbs create an atmosphere that's both nostalgic and intimate, reminiscent of smoky underground music venues where indie bands cut their teeth.

To add a touch of whimsy and eccentricity, incorporate string lights. These delicate, twinkling strands can be hung artfully across the room, framing a mirror, or draping over a bookshelf. They infuse your space with a dreamy, ethereal quality that enhances the rebellious charm of indie sleaze.

For a bold statement piece, introduce a neon sign. Whether it's the name of your favorite band, a rebellious slogan, or a symbol of your personal philosophy, neon signs add a vibrant, electrifying element to your room.

Incorporating dimmable lighting fixtures also allows you to tailor the atmosphere to your mood. Lower the lights for introspective moments, or turn them up when you're hosting a gathering of kindred spirits. Moody lighting is more than just illumination--it's a tool for crafting the perfect ambiance in your indie sleaze sanctuary.

Layered Textures

One of the defining characteristics of the indie sleaze style is its tactile richness, and this is most effectively achieved through the artful layering of textures. By combining a variety of materials and surfaces, you'll create a sensory experience that's as rebellious and captivating as the style itself.

Start by selecting a base texture that forms the foundation of your room. This could be a sumptuous faux fur rug that beckons you to sink your feet into its plush softness or a rugged sisal rug that adds an earthy, raw quality to your space.

Next, consider your furniture choices. Velvet cushions on a leather sofa, a distressed wood side table beneath a sleek glass surface, or a metal-framed mirror mounted on weathered brick wallpaper are all examples of textural pairings that infuse your room with depth and character.

Layer textiles throughout your space, from velvet curtains that pool dramatically on the floor to knitted throws casually tossed over the back of a chair. These textiles not only add visual interest but also make your room feel inviting and cozy.

Don't forget about tactile accessories like throw pillows with embroidered patterns, shaggy cushions, and woven baskets. These elements contribute to the sensory experience, making your room a place to touch and feel as well as see.

In the world of indie sleaze, textures aren't just decor--they're an integral part of the rebellious ambiance. They invite you to explore, engage, and immerse yourself fully in the space, creating a multisensory experience that's as unique and individual as you are.

Ultimately, the key to decorating your room in an indie sleaze style is personal expression. Your room should be a reflection of your interests, passions, and rebellious spirit. Don't be afraid to break the rules and create a space that's uniquely your own. Decorating your room in an indie sleaze style is all about embracing your inner rebel and expressing your individuality. By incorporating vintage finds, moody colors, DIY decor, and rock 'n' roll influences, you can create a space that's edgy, eclectic, and undeniably cool. So, crank up the music, grab a can of spray paint, and let your creativity run wild as you transform your room into a haven of indie sleaze.
