Trigger warning: this post will discuss bodies. While the context is love and not weight loss, I get that body talk can be tough, so please feel free to skip this one if that’s best for you!
As you might know by now, I’ve taken on the One Room Challenge in our Guest Bedroom. That means I’m fixing up the whole room in 8 weeks. I’d been hoping to be done painting by now, but…stay tuned for a paint update next week (lol).
That said, I have to share a sneak peek because an accessory arrived for my space, and, well, I’m obsessed.
It’s a beautiful (bootyful!) vase shaped like a woman’s lower half. If you will recall from this post, the inspiration for our guest bedroom is The Duchess, a series on Netflix in which Katherine Ryan plays a potter, and she makes vases in the shape of the female body. So, of course, this vase was a needed addition to this room.
But once it arrived and I loved it so much, it also felt so much more liberating than just an object. After all, this vase is nothing less than a celebration of the female form.
And, in a season when so many of us feel pressured to lose the “quarantine 15” (GROSS) or get our “bikini bodies” ready (EYE ROLL), it feels sort of radical to celebrate our bodies. As Aubrey Gordon writes in this article,
“In the grand scheme of what we have weathered in the last year, weight gain simply couldn’t be less important. These bodies have helped us survive.”
“Whatever your body looks like now, it is a body that has carried you through a time of tremendous tragedy, now to a point where we might finally be able to see glimmers of hope from the other side. And that matters so much more than weight gain ever could.”
I recommend reading the whole post.
I know this might feel a little beside the point for a home decor blog, but it got me thinking about all the great celebrations of the female form available to complement our home decor. No, we can’t buy body positivity—that’s a long and personal journey we each have to navigate. But, when we bring a beautiful depiction of a female body into our home, perhaps it can be a reminder of the beauty in our own form.
So, today, I’m sharing a round up of body-positive art, wallpaper, vases, and other home decor accents. Buckle up—it’s a good one.

Body Positive Nudes and Art Prints
Of course, the way we classically think of bringing nudes into our home is through art, and I’ve found quite the collection of art print options for you, from curvy nudes to abstract interpretations and everything in between. The nudes in my home are from Victoria Bradley Studio (my favorite artist follow on Instagram), and I might need to order this one next. This nude on a leaf print is more abstract but lovely.
Body Positive Wallpaper
It’s not just prints that can make your walls more body-full! The incredible wallpaper artist Katie Zaremba actually makes a few different wallpapers that celebrate the body. Sorry that I didn’t include them in the image (I tried but it looked really funky…). This one is all legs, this is a really cute venus-inspired pattern, and this is a very subtle interpretation of bodies in a pretty black and white pattern.
Body Vases, Objects, and More!
Moving off the walls, I was surprised at the quantity of physical objects I found that embrace the female form. I’ve shared these boob hooks before and still love them, but I couldn’t resist ordering the spoon rest for our kitchen!
This white vase is a larger version of the pink one I ordered. And there are plenty of vases to choose from—this one is having a seat, while this one is all about the hips, and this one features the top of a bust and a neck for flowers.
