5 Dramatic Looks Guaranteed To Make Your Bathroom Instagram Worthy
There are bathroom designs, and then there is bathroom designs—innovative and impactful looks that go beyond any bathroom we’ve ever seen. And this week, we’re bringing them straight to you.
Like we always do, we scrolled through hundreds of Instagram posts to find the most popular decor, this time in view of the washroom. And right now, “drama” seems to be the set day mantra.
With dark, plush wallpaper and stunning romantic extras, this week will give you more than a few inspired ideas for getting your bathroom out of its pandemic phase and into the realm of magazine-style interiors. Here are five bathroom looks that are simply beyond.
1. Window mirror
Is your bathroom looking a bit dark and dingy these days? Then bring in some light with a window mirror like this one from @stacyzaringoldberg.
“There is no written design law that you have to have a simple mirror in your bathroom,” says Michelle Harrison-McAllister of Michelle Harrison Conception. “This one mirrors the look of a window and brings an old world touch to your box-sized toilet.”
The Unexpected Piece is a conversation starter that might rekindle memories of your vacation in Europe.

2. All in terracotta
While pink is still having its heyday, there’s also a new pink hue in town – and we see it on everything, like on this door and the tiling featured by @iamhayleystuart.
“Terracotta has been around for a while, which makes it a heartwarming color,” says designer Amy peltier of Peltier interiors. “This space works well with the softer blush tones of the cabinet.”
Many Spanish-style homes have also adopted terracotta floors in recent times, as they are traditional but also work with modern patterns, Peltier adds. In fact, the red-brown hue was even that of Sherwin-Williams color of the year in 2019.

3. Dark “jungalow” walls
Bathrooms are a great place to experience a little drama, and nothing does the job like this dark “jungalow” (“jungle” and “bungalow”) wallpaper brought to you by @ ferns_and_filigrane.
“Dark colors are back,” says Brenna Morgane of Brenna Morgan Interiors. “But we haven’t lost our love for plants, and this trend is a perfect blend of the two. Dark jungalow wallpaper can really make a splash in a small space like a powder room.

4. Wall taps
When your faucets are as flashy and artistic as those in @mmlighting, they deserve their own wall space.
“Wall-mounted faucets are an awesome design trend that will enhance your bathroom play,” says Morgan. “Wall-mounted faucets take up less valuable counter space in a bathroom and add a little element of surprise.
“Faucets and accessories are the jewels of the bathroom, so make that count,” she adds.

5. Vanity units
Why have a boring vanity when you could have your sink tucked away in a gorgeous vintage-style dresser? This washbasin dresser from @thesassybarn gives us all the decor feels.
“My vintage-loving heart is a huge fan of dressers as sink bases,” Morgan explains. “Mainly because the sky is the limit for a vanity setup, and if you find a dresser or dresser you like in a vintage store or consignment store, a skilled craftsman can make it a vanity for you.”
