The Ladies Room Door Art Series: Part Seventeen

Standard

I took this sign above the ladies room at The Pilot House in Wilmington, North Carlolina. It’s simple and classy. Inside the bathroom, I found a fireplace, which I’ve never seen in a ladies room before!

From reader Kathy, the doors of the Lady and the Fig in Sonoma, California. Kathy reports they used to have Barbie on one door and Ken on the other, but the bathrooms have gone gender-neutral. Speaking of gender neutral, here’s a recent article on the topic in the New York Times. I gotta say though, it breaks my heart to think the ladies room door series may have to come to a close one day.

How do you feel about gender-neutral bathrooms? Am I correct in assuming these are single person bathrooms and that it doesn’t mean men and women will be next to one another in the stalls?

I was delighted to find this door at the Angus Barn, a longstanding old favorite in Raleigh, North Carolina.

And this festive chicken tile inside one of the ladies rooms.

Since the restaurant’s name is Angus Barn, look at these great stall doors. Talk about a play on words!

Finally, another door at the Angus Barn.This one’s near the cozy upstairs bar (where they offer complimentary cheese and crackers).

Reader Cindy writes this about a door she found at the Blue Water Bistro: “This lovely mermaid graced the ladies’ room door where my college friends and I had lunch during a recent reunion in Estero, Florida.  We graduated from Kalamazoo College in 1978, live in 6 different states, and get together every year in a different location.” Fun!

Finally. from Judy and Alice, Taste Full Beans, Hickory, North Carolina (a joint bathroom door sighting!)

When you go to a holiday Christmas party, do check out the ladies room door. And for those of you traveling this season, let sending a door to Friend for the Ride be  a happy highlight. My email is on the right. Thanks!

  1. Another great set. So fun seeing them and where they come from. I love the mermaid door in Florida and LOVE the idea that Cindy and her college friends get together at a different city every year. The Pilot House in Wilmington was nice too. I’ll have to check it out next time I’m in that city!
