The style isn’t just for kids.

Kids of the ’90s, your time has come. Etsy just released a new report on children’s trends, and while a few stylish souvenirs from the decade are spiking in popularity—including daisy items and overalls—there’s one standout category we’re eyeing. Searches for tie-dye have increased 318 percent since this time last year.
Sure, the splashy design is a fun way to dress up a nursery (DIY crib sheets in the hues of your choice to introduce some color to afternoon naps), but it’s not just for your little ones. There are plenty of ways to get in on the nostalgic trend through elevated decor, and if you’re ready to bring back a childhood favorite, these four pieces have no age limit.
The Tabletop Textile
This funky set stars an unusual material: Hand-dyed reclaimed denim will set the scene for many chic at-home dinners to come. Add simple white plates to keep the focus on the linens.
The Swirly Vase
Any one of these colorful glass vessels is deserving of a spot on your nightstand or bookcase. Use it to display your latest foraged find—even if that’s just a sprig of weeds. Let the jar do the talking.
The Patchwork Quilt
Featuring a trio of washed-out pastels, this cotton blanket is the perfect thing to curl up in as we transition to cooler weather. Complete the boho look by peppering in a few natural accents to transform your bedroom into a calming haven.
The Flecked Pillowcase
Sleeping on silk may sound unnecessarily fancy, but it comes with a roster of benefits (from better skin to split-end relief) that make it worth a try. This bright option was inspired by a fruity cocktail and is an easy way to make your space a little cheerier.
