    Create a Sacred Space in Your Home - Female owned businesses creating seductive interiors

    In the Netflix series 'How to Build a Sex Room', interior designer Melanie Rose makes it her mission to re-discover intimacy and create ‘sacred spaces’ in the home.

    We thought we’d introduce you to some of our favourite seductive designs, all created by female owned businesses.

    Daring wallpapers and fabrics

    Award winning interiors brand The Monkey Puzzle Tree has collaborated with artist Sarah Jane Palmer to create subtle but daring erotic designs.

    Their monochrome Maitrise wallpaper shows intertwined couples amidst handcuffs and chains, all subtly concealed in a baroque pattern in black on white.

    Artist Sarah Jane Palmer also creates bespoke erotic wallpaper designs and hand printed papers under her own brand Muriel Design.  

    Naughty Nets! 

    A distraction from prying eyes, these secretly naughty voile curtains may look innocent but take a closer look…

    'At first you don't see the couples, but when you make out their shapes you have the notion of something forbidden hiding beneath the respectability of a traditional net curtain' - artist Sarah Jane Palmer
