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.

Despite what Punxsutawney Phil the groundhog might say about six more weeks of winter, spring is right around the corner, and will be here before we know it. And with the coming of spring, this means flowers are finally starting to bloom, the days are beginning to get longer, and the wait for summer break is slowly approaching an end (very slowly, but you get the point). Spring is a time for growth, bright colors, and a fresh start. If you’re looking to get into the swing of spring but you’re not sure where to start, the best place to welcome the season is in your room. Spring cleaning is a real thing, and starting with your dorm room is as good a place to start as any!

While you might begin to spend less time in your room as the days begin to get warmer and longer, your dorm room is still a place you should feel happy and comfortable in. However, after a long winter with chilly days your room might more resemble a dark and gloomy cave than a bright and happy space. And who can blame you? It’s common for your room to take on a more cozy feel in the winter to help ward off the cold. This could mean your room is filled with soft rugs and darker toned colors. But if you find yourself longing for spring but your dorm room isn’t exactly matching your vibe, try one (or more) of our favorite 3 spring dorm decor trends to help brighten your space and refresh your room!

1. Pretty in Pastel

When you think of spring you might often think of pastel colors, Easter eggs, and flowers. There’s a reason pastels are often thought of in relation to spring; they embody the atmosphere of a fresh start and that light and airy feeling you often get when springtime approaches. Pastels are fresh and clean, and can brighten up any space you put them in. Pastels are a great way to add color to your room as a way of incorporating spring, while also keeping it light and refreshing. 

Pastels have a way of opening up a space and making it seem light and comfortable. When you think of how light and pretty pastels can be and how fresh they can make a space look, it seems obvious that incorporating pastels into your dorm room will give you that fresh new look you might be searching for. Pastels are also a great way to refresh your space because there are plenty of options when looking for pastel decor. The only challenging part will be choosing which items you want to incorporate. 

When looking for pastels, there are several ways you can incorporate them into your living space. The first is the most obvious approach; your bedding. Whenever you’re looking to make a drastic change in your room, your bedspread is the easiest place to start. Just changing the color of your comforter can completely mix up your room aesthetic and create the illusion that you redid your room entirely. When looking at pastel bedding, a fun spring trend this year is to stick with a monochrome look. Try having a darker shade sheet with a pastel comforter. By mixing different shades of the same color, you’ll create dimension while still achieving the brightening effect of pastels. 

This pink bedding from OCM is a great example of how you can incorporate different shades of pink for a monochromatic look. For more pastel bedding options, click here.

Another fun way to use pastels to refresh your room just in time for spring is to swap out that thick, dark rug you bought to stay warm during the winter, and replace it with something a little more lively. Rugs are another easy way to transform a space and unlike in winter where you might’ve used a rug to create a cozier space, this time you’ll be using a rug to create a cleaner and brighter look. This doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the softness of your rug either; just because a rug is light and airy doesn’t mean it can’t be fuzzy and cozy too. 

This rug from OCM is a good example of how you can mix different pastel colors to create a softer rainbow look that will brighten any room! Click here to see more rug options from OCM. 

Incorporating some pastel accents throughout your room is another way to give your room a makeover. A few ways you can do this is with some throw pillows or some throw blankets. Just because it will be getting warmer the longer spring goes on, doesn’t mean you won’t get cold occasionally. Spring is known for its somewhat unpredictable weather. So don’t pack up your cozy blankets and throws just yet. Consider getting a lightweight blanket in a pastel shade. This will not only brighten your space, but the light weight of the blanket will keep you from getting too hot or cold. 

Similar to the rug we just looked at, this blanket from OCM has a fun, pastel pattern that can help refresh your room. Click here for more blanket and throw options from OCM.

2. Bright is Sometimes Better

If pastel colors aren’t really your style, try doing the opposite and incorporating bright colors into your room. Bright colors have a way of doing exactly what their name suggests; they make things bright. So take this logic and apply it to your room decor. Spring is a time where there are colors everywhere. Whether that be in flowers or clothing trends, colors are always in during the springtime. Why not use some bright colors in your dorm room? You might be concerned that bright colors might be too overwhelming, but there are ways of incorporating bright colors into your space without it giving you a headache. Yes, even orange can be an aesthetically pleasing color in your room!

If you’re nervous about using bright colors in your room but you want to give it a try, start with just the accents first. You don’t have to go crazy and pick one of everything for your room in the color lemon yellow. Start small; a few trinkets on your desk, some fun wall art, or even some colored lights. A simple place to begin is with some throw pillows. If you’re not ready to commit to a neon room just yet, throw pillows can help liven up your already existing space. Throw pillows are a great way to add pops of color throughout your room to create a bright and fresh look.

If you’re looking for a bolder way to incorporate some color into your room, buying a tapestry with bright colors is a good way to do this. Tapestries are a fun way to change up your room decor, and you can change them out to fit your mood or current decor theme. Tapestries are also a good way to bring some color and life back into your room, just in time for spring! Look for tapestries that have a lot of color in them; the brighter the better in this case. This will help to cover some of that plain dorm room wall and help to brighten your room.

The different shades of blue in this tapestry from OCM will help to make the colors less overwhelming while still adding bright colors to your room. Click here to see more tapestry options from OCM. 

Similar to how you can incorporate pastel colors into your room with a new bedspread, you can use this same technique to introduce bright colors into your room. If you want to go all out with color, you can get the brightest colored bedding you can find. However, if you’re more hesitant to have a bright bedspread for fear that it might become too much, you can get a bedspread that has colorful accents. Or, look for a reversible comforter with a bright color on one side and a muted color on the other. This way you can flip it over whenever you want.

This bedding bundle from OCM not only includes a fun colored and patterned comforter, but it also includes everything you might need to get your bedding set started. For more bedding bundle options, click here

3. Fall in Love With Florals

When you think of spring, it is almost a given that you’ll probably think of flowers as well. With spring comes the growth and blooming of new flowers everywhere. Floral prints are a great way to bring the springtime season into your dorm room to give it a springtime refresh! But unlike the flowers outside, you won’t need a green thumb to have some flowers in your dorm room. With these florals, you can completely forget about them. Except for when you’re admiring how great they look in your room, of course. 

If you want to incorporate some flowers into your room, consider using floral print throughout your room. Floral prints can brighten up any space, but you have to first consider what kind of floral prints are for you. There are many different floral prints out there, so just remember to have fun when picking out your favorite. If you’re looking to make a big change to your room and totally transform it for spring, consider changing up your entire room theme. 

Take spring cleaning to the next level and completely switch up your room decor and overall atmosphere. A nice spring decor trend you can try is to use Tokyo and Japanese inspired dorm decor pieces. These inspired pieces feature cherry blossom flowers, bright colors, other floral designs, and lantern style lighting too. This trend of decorating can bring a whole new feeling to your room that will have you forgetting those cold winter nights in no time. 

If you can’t find lantern lights to add to your room, consider using these lights from OCM to give your room a cozy atmosphere while still having a spring feel. For other lighting options from OCM, click here.  

Another easy way to bring some florals into your dorm room is with some wall art. Wall art is not only a great way to bring some life back into your room after what might have felt like a long winter, but it is also an easy way to incorporate floral designs into your space. When considering what kind of floral wall art to put in your room, think about the types of florals you want. There are plenty of different wall art pieces that feature floral prints, and having some flowers on your walls will help your room feel more like spring and less like the end of winter.
