AN interior designer known as the “Mary Poppins of sex rooms” has shared her top tips for adding subtle kink to your home.
Melanie Rose is helping couples shake things up in the bedroom in the upcoming Netflix series called How to Build a Sex Room.
Netflix has announced the series, describing it by saying: “From a secret rock ‘n’ roll dungeon to a next-level spa, designer Melanie Rose dreams up erotic renovations for couples in this spicy reality series.”
Each episode will feature Rose visiting a couple who is looking to covert part of their house into an adult playroom.
In the trailer for the series, Rose enters one couple’s home and says: “So, I understand you want a sex room.”
Rose consults with the couple to learn more about their sex lives.
Using that information, she works with a contractor, Mike, to design a space that will help the couple achieve their sex goals.
In one part of the trailer, Mike gets involved, helping Rose test out some bondage equipment on a bed.
“I always like to make his life a little difficult,” she says.
Rose has been working as a high-end interior designer for 15 years.
She usually designs luxury homes, but was once asked to create a sex room.
Now, she’ll help other couples integrate different items and toys, including stripper poles and bondage set ups.
The trailer shows some of the finished rooms, some of which include lavish soaking bathtubs with mood lighting, whips, ropes, mirrors, feathers, and soft-looking bedding and blankets.
One couple in the trailer even credits Rose with helping to save their marriage.
“You are our angel for our marriage,” the woman tells Rose.
“It’s curiosity that’s being unlocked,” another woman says of the room transformation.
Through the series, Rose hopes to decrease the stigma surrounding sex rooms.
“When people hear the words ‘sex room,’ they concentrate on the word ‘sex,’ and that connotes ‘dirty,’ ‘disgusting,'” Rose says in the trailer.
“But when I design them, they can be beautiful, and they are places where couples can explore their deepest fantasies.”
“They say you never know what goes on behind closed doors, but I do. Why wouldn’t I go and design a sex room?”
The unscripted reality series will be available to stream on Netflix beginning July 8.
