At our house we are pretty basic when it comes to toilet seats. I haven't done an extensive inventory but I'm pretty sure they are all white. The gold toilet above is at the US Arts Museum. I don't think I'd want to use it any way. Looks kind of cold frankly.
Then I saw the toilet seat below and it got me thinking. When I was a kid my parents had some old tastes when it came to toilet seats. I remember one that had coins in the plastic. I thought this was a subtle hint that this was a pay restroom, but I didn't ask. Then I kind of remembered an olive greet padded toilet seat. It is too weird to have thought up on my own so it must have really been in the house at some point. A padded toilet seat? How long are you going to be in there? I mean we had 6 kids in a house with one toilet, we were taking numbers already. I think my Dad has a wooden toilet seat now a days. Seem too outhouse-ish to me. I try to just hold it when visiting.
Today I saw the seat below. I like butterflies. I regularly have to use the restroom. What I don't want is butterflies looking at me while I use the bathroom. Maybe you'd like. For me I'm fine with white plastic.
