We’re bringing sexy back! From little touches of cheekiness, to full-on provocateur, I’ve rounded up my favorite glamorous home décor ideas if you're looking to add some unexpected accessories into your home . So let’s get to the décor goodness, or should I say the naughtiness! Read on, you sexy design revolutionaries!
1. Glamorous Home Décor Ideas for the Risqué: Self-Medication
While I personally don’t advocate the drug life (I’m more of a cocktails-as-meds gal) I think it’s more of a humor thing than anything else.
A jar for your stash that really hold cookies, an oversized pill for your cocktail table or shelfie, an embroidered or needlepoint pillow with your med of choice embroidered in or a brass Xanax box to hold your remote controls. It shows that you don’t take your home décor so serious and to me, is much more metaphorical than anything else- I don’t need drugs. My home décor makes me high without them!
2. Glamorous Home Décor Ideas for the Risqué: Profanity
I have a mouth- something I don’t scream from the rooftops on the internet or social media, but an f-bomb may drop every now and then. Well, okay, maybe it’s a bit more than now and then.
The same goes for your home.
Just like I don’t scream out profanity all the time (I am a lady, after all- and those words need to have an impact) a carefully dropped swear in an unexpected spot shows off your sense of humor and personality.
A well placed coaster set, a statement middle finger in sexy brass, or even a single needlepoint with your swear-of-choice could be just the right amount of naughtiness for your place. My favorite are my cocktail coasters by Jonathan Adler. I mean, they technically aren’t even a swear!
3: Glam Home Décor Ideas for the Risqué: Lips
Not ready to go full-on with your nudity?
A great lip piece is a subtler hint at the sexiness in your home. It’s your home’s way of saying, “Pucker up and give me a kiss!”
You can add a bit of pouty brass, hang a watercolor reminiscent of the Parker Palm Springs, or go full glam squad with a beaded art piece. This is a totally kid-appropriate way of adding a bit of sultry style into your life. ‘Cause after all, being a mom can totally be sexy!
4. Glam Home Décor Ideas for the Risqué: Nudity
Prude warning- If you post pictures of your nude home décor on social media, people will get their panties in a wad. Seriously, I crack up when people announce that they will unfollow due to some boobs in a painting- get a life!
I’m not talking pornography here, I’m talking nudity. There is a HUGE difference!
Jonathan Adler’s Muse Collection is my absolute favorite. There’s something very light and humorous about his take on nudity.
I own one of these pieces and nobody every has been offended that I have boobs on my bar cart. In fact, most people don’t even notice. It’s sneaky risqué!
My best friend doesn’t feel like she needs to shield it from her kids (she’s more concerned with them breaking it), and honestly, when people do realize what it is, they crack up! I can’t count the number of times those nips have been pinched.
Some of our friends have a Playboy from the year their house was built (it’s very Mid Century) framed in their bathroom- and yes, they have children. The cover is very tame and is a bit more pin-up and oo-la-la.
But maybe you’re more into buns- there’s the perfect piece out there for you as well. And if you’re going for a bit more innuendo, bananas are always a nice option.
5. Glam Home Décor Ideas for the Risqué: 007
Nothing says sexy like adding a bit of James Bond into your home. (If you can think of a sexier fictional character other than Mr. Darcy, I urge you to put them in the comments!)
Whomever your favorite 007 secret agent may be (I’m partial to Roger Moore), there’s bound to be a sleek, seductive art piece of either an updated alternative or the original movie poster, or better yet, a black and white of the man himself.
But don’t just limit yourself to such a literal interpretation of the the films. Bond was never farm from his Q gadgets, and the Philippe Starch gun lamp is the epitome of James Bond sexiness. And while Mr. Bond was rarely at home, I’m sure his had a fully loaded bar cart ready to shake things up!
And of course, with all of these ideas, you could go full sex and drugs den, but I prefer to add a few items here and there for an added bit of fun. In my own home, I have gun lamp, Georgia cookie jar, some cock/tail coasters and a nude piece of art. That’s plenty of sexy risqué home décor without trying too hard, and they're spread out throughout the houe.
