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.

Mermaidcore is all about ocean vibes, dreamy aesthetics, and colorful accent pieces. It features a lot of blues, purples, greens, and pinks, basically the colors you picture whenever you think of a mermaid. There is a lot of mermaid lore that comes before the story ‘The Little Mermaid,’ but Ariel has solidified a lot of mermaid imagery in our culture, so when we think of mermaids, we often think of Ariel’s purple top and green fin. The colors purple, blue, and pink now seem perfectly fit for a mermaid, and as long as you fill your room with ocean elements, these colors can help you pull off mermaidcore. 

If you are a fan of fantasy worlds and fantastical stories, mermaidcore just might be the perfect dorm room style for you, especially if you’re also a fan of ethereal fashions. Mermaids are a mythical creature shrouded in mystery and lore, so you need to make your room feel the same way. The more ocean elements you can fit into your space, the better. Make sure to also add some regal pieces if you want to feel like royalty just like everyone’s favorite Disney sea princess!


The bed is often the focal point of a bedroom, so make sure that it really makes a statement. When your bed represents mermaidcore, the rest of the room will follow. With a few standout pieces, you can turn your bed into a space fit for a mermaid. 

Charging Shell Headboard

It is colorful and stands out in the best way. It also has an amazing texture that will make you feel happy to lean against it at night. On top of this headboard's great looks, it comes with a charging port attached so you can charge your phone right in bed. 

Octopus Throw Pillow

An octopus represents a big part of ocean life, and also the villain in the most popular mermaid story ever. But unlike the sea witch, the octopus on this pillow looks friendly. It will make your dorm room into a friendly and inviting space. An octopus on your pillows will add one other sea element into your room and give your space more fun vibes.

Your desk needs as much attention as any other dorm room space. Any work space could stand to benefit from some decorating, especially when that includes calming ocean elements. When you’re done putting your desk together, it should look like a place you want to spend time in that brings you peace in times of stress. And that is certainly something that a mermaidcore aesthetic can do.

So sit in comfort, add to the mermaid theme, and roll around your room with this adorable pink chair. 


The floor ties the whole room together, so you need to make sure that it embodies mermaidcore. That will be easily accomplished by making sure to use some blue. The ocean is blue, so why not your floor?

Velvet Storage Ottoman

One of the most useful things you can have in a dorm room is extra storage, and you can add that extra storage while sticking with a mermaid theme. This velvet storage ottoman is meant to be used as storage and seating. When you need to store something you will just need to lift the lid, place whatever you want inside, and then place the lid back on and sit down. This storage bench saves so much space and you can feel like you’re sitting on a small rock out in the ocean. 

Denim Area Rug

This rug is also a great texture that will feel good to run your feet across.

These baskets can be used for pretty much anything you can think of. You can use them for laundry, for storage, or even as plain decorations. Use them how you wish and they will still help complete your mermaidcore dorm room. 


Your wall is a major part of decorating a space, so the more you use your wall space, the better. Hang up enough blue posters and ocean images, and your dorm room will soon be the place a mermaid would choose to stay herself, after she’s already traded her voice for her legs, of course. 

Turquoise Wall Print

This wall art will help make your dorm room into a seaside paradise so that you can live like a mermaid on land. And adding different blues together will mimic the different blues shown across the ocean throughout each day. 

‘It Was All A Dream’ Neon Sign

The more shades of blue you have in your room to achieve this look, the better, so grab a cool blue neon sign. A neon light that states a famous phrase will be a great item to grace your walls. It will light your room with a dim blue glow whenever you want it to, and will always make a pretty blue background piece.
