‘s new series “How To Build A Sex Room,” luxury interior designer Melanie Rose helps couples transform their run-of-the-mill spaces, all in the name of amazing sex.

Each couple tells Rose about their unique sexual interests and desires, and she works with a contractor to create a sex room that matches their visual and erotic tastes.

In the first episode, Rose was met with a challenge as she worked with Raj and Ryan, a married couple who said their interior design and sexual preferences were both unaligned. Raj, a jazz singer, described her style as bohemian and her sexual preferences as sensual, while her husband Ryan described himself as more technical and logical. Raj also said Ryan was soft-spoken, and hoped to add more experimentation to their vanilla sex life.

When Raj and Ryan showed Rose their bare-bones room, which didn’t have a

, decorations, or a single pop of color, they revealed that their seemingly misaligned aesthetics have kept them in a slump.

According to Raj, their bedroom was “a bit of a metaphor for our relationship. Just like we always plan to get around to the romance and intimacy part of our relationship, we’ve been planning to get around to overhauling that bedroom for the longest time.”

To help the couple, Rose interviewed them about their sexual interests and designed a room with three separate areas for lounging and experimenting with newfound desires.

“I want this room to prove sex rooms can be both beautiful and erotic,” Rose said on the show’s second episode.

Through an interview with Raj and Ryan, Rose learned they wanted a bedroom that felt swanky and classy. Raj said she wanted it to look more like a “romance room” than a sex dungeon.

Since the couple said they found vacations the best time to be intimate, Rose designed a room inspired by vacation suites and added sex toys and fabrics with luxurious textures to add an extra element of pleasure. She said she wanted to make a room for them that was all about “escaping the ordinary.”

The room layout was L-shaped, which allowed Rose to develop three distinct areas inside that honored Raj’s sensual and more experimental side and Ryan’s love of lounging and technology.

When Rose revealed the room transformation, she first showed Ryan and Raj the “sensation area” near the entrance, which included floor pillows, flower petals, soft blankets, and a sex toy collection. During the episode, Rose showed the couple her “bag of tricks,” a literal bag of sex toys and included ones that piqued her interest, including handcuffs and feathers. Since Ryan requested a fireplace, Rose obliged.

The second area, around the corner, was a living space that included, upon Ryan’s request, a television and surround-sound speakers. Still, Rose found a way to sexify the nook with a tray of sex toys and body oils atop the media center.

Last, Rose showed Raj and Ryan their bed, which was covered in pillows, rose petals, and lush fabrics like faux fur. She added a bed frame and chandelier for the hotel vibe the couple wanted. Raj expressed interest in trying restraint play with handcuffs or ties, so Rose attached cuffs to the four corners of the bed frame.

When Raj and Ryan saw the final room, they went from complete shock to full-on smile. Then they made plans to restrain each other in bed.
