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.

Now that summer is giving way to fall, a new aesthetic is dominating dorm rooms all over the country. It’s known as Plazacore, and it is all about luxury and elegance. The inspiration for this style is the Plaza Hotel, along with its most famous representative, Eloise. The look is reminiscent of a preppy city socialite with a taste for opulence, think Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl, and you can pull it off just as well. 

A Plazacore room will remind you of an upscale hotel’s best bedroom, just like Blair Waldorf’s. And Blair Waldorf certainly has money to spare, but you don’t have to be nearly as rich to get the Plazacore look. You can fill your dorm room with trinkets that give it an air of opulence without having to empty out your bank account. The Plaza Hotel may have thousand dollar chandeliers, but you can imitate their aesthetic with so much less!

We will show you how you can live in a Plazacore dorm room on a normal budget. With a collection of luxurious items taking over your space, you will feel like you’re entering a hotel room whenever you walk through your doorway very soon. Go shopping with our suggestions in mind, and you can turn your dorm room into the type of place a grown up Eloise would brag about. 

Gold Accent Pieces

The color you should focus most on when going for Plazacore is gold. Plazacore is all about gold. When you enter the Plaza hotel, you will see gold all throughout the lobby. It’s one of the things that makes the space look so elegant. Gold represents wealth and therefore opulence. So any place where an abundance of gold is present just looks more high class. With a few or many standout gold furniture pieces added to your dorm room, you will be living in visual luxury.

Upscale places are often very white and bright. One reason for that is how clean and neat the color white makes a room look. A clean space is the picture of elegance because not everyone can keep up a clean, white space. White is a great backdrop for any style, and you don’t have to go too white to get that vibe. You can go with a less stark tone like cream and get a similar effect.
