Pink sinks, elaborate urinals and more than enough toilet paper. Bathpix brings together the best in bathroom design from around the world. It's a wild ride through the best and worst of interior design, veering from the fancy to the fantastical along the way.

Who is Bathpix?

Bathpix was started by Atlanta-based photographer Maggy Swain in 2014, during the boom of interior design accounts on Instagram. “There were a lot of aesthetic accounts popping up and I wanted to make one. I was already constantly taking pictures of bathroom interiors, so it started that way,” she recalls. The resulting feed is a maximalist celebration of the weird and the wacky in public and private bathrooms, from novelty urinals to fluffy toilet seats. Playful, colourful and never dull, Bathpix reveals an eye for the whimsical and the absurd, as well as some undeniably great design.

Why should you follow?

The joy of Bathpix lies in the familiarity of its subject. Who knew there were so many possible variations on the humble sink and loo? Images are gathered for the feed via open submission and DMs, while other are taken by Maggy and friends in “cute bathrooms, vintage interior books and on real estate website Zillow.” Some of their personal favourites include an all-green bathroom with a huge leaf rug on the floor and “any bathroom we get with a checkered tile pattern”. It all goes to show that fantasy and escapism are possible even in the most mundane of places—and without ever leaving the house.

What Instagram doesn’t tell you

Bathpix have released a series of rainbow zines, each a colour-coded collection of their favourite photos from the account, taking their love of bathrooms beyond the digital realm. First up was pink, followed by green, with each drawing immediate visual connections between seemingly disparate spaces. None of the images uploaded to Instagram are sorted by location, leaving them largely anonymous and placeless. Instead, Bathpix acts as a fantastical catalogue of design trends, mistakes and ambitions to be archived online forever. Scroll through other people’s fantasy bathrooms, and don’t forget to wash your hands on the way out.
