As we prepare to turn our clocks forward this weekend, we got to thinking: This biannual ritual doesn’t just mean a change in the time—it signals a time for change, too. Now’s the perfect opportunity to shake things up in your home decor!

So as we do every week, we sought inspiration on Instagram, sifting through hundreds of posts to uncover which looks are trending. Last week, we warmed things up in the kitchen; this time, we’re moving on to the bathroom. What we found is that the most popular designs in the loo aren’t just beautifully unique; they’ll actually enhance your home’s feng shui, too.

So if you’re ready for a change that will bring the good vibes to your bathroom (and beyond!), just check out this gorgeous decor—along with details on how you can steal the look.

Southwest-inspired ceramic

“This texture never goes out of style, but having grown up in Arizona, where terra cotta is prevalent, I might be a bit partial,” says interior designer and feng shui expert Amanda Gates.

And after seeing these gorgeous bathroom sink bowls by @comparethetradie, all we have to say is: We’re joining the club.

“With so many of us spending more time indoors, I think we all gravitate instinctively to natural elements,” Gates adds. “It not only reminds us of the outdoors, but items that have a textural touch also enliven our chi [life force] and add depth to our interiors.”

Statement backsplash

This is a stunning downstairs cloakroom by @dkinteriors. That splashback is bonkers, and the blue walls are a perfect combo. It was super tricky to shoot as the door opened inward and there was no natural light in a tiny room! So behind the scene of this image is me squashed down between the door and the toilet holding a light, having wedged the camera on the loo as far back as I can get it. My job is glamour all the way.

Ready to ditch that boring backsplash? We thought so. This striking geode design from @paullmcraig makes a bold statement that will transform your bathroom.

“As a feng shui practitioner, [I can say] there is no better material for a home than natural stones like geode,” Gates explains. “Stones uplift your mood, balance your energy systems, and can even lower stress—plus, it’s beautiful.”

Get the look: If you don’t have any geodes lying around, we recommend shopping these stunning agate-inspired tile collections from Wayfair—or even this geode decal from Etsy.


Calming neutrals

“A neutral color scheme for a bathroom creates a clean, airy, and calm aesthetic,” says Courtney Fenimore, a design consultant with Spoak. “And neutral colors in a bathroom is a trend that’s here to stay.”

We couldn’t agree more, especially after soaking in all the calming vibes of this bathroom design from @_residenz_zur_lilie_, reposted by @inspi___deco.

“Not only is our mood affected by the colors we use, but neutrals can also help balance light in a small space,” Fenimore adds.

Industrial shower doors

Speaking of an airy and calm aesthetic, check out these modern windowed shower doors reposted by @eastwoods_design (originally from @eac_interior_design).

“One of my favorite trends,” says Gates. “These are far prettier than the humdrum all-glass shower. They add texture and depth, not to mention interest. It also gives you the flexibility to customize them, which you lose in an all-glass shower.”

Comfy bathroom poufs

“Textiles are one of the easiest ways to impart some texture and warmth into your bathroom,” says Spoak design consultant Erin Strasen. And this bathroom pouf is more than pulling its weight in this repost from @benuta featuring the home of @_fashionsabs.

“When towels and bathmats aren’t doing the trick, a bathroom pouf can help make a bigger impact,” she says. “Put a tray on top, and use it as a surface for a styled vignette, or to rest your book when reading in the tub.”
