Psychitecture: New Approach for Lovers of Art
Hollywood Times Magazine, MARCH 2015

Hollywood, CA (The Hollywood Times) 3/10/15 – Rachel Melvald’s Psychitecture business has leaped international boundaries in one month from its kick-off in the Hollywood Hills.
The depth of her impact has far-reaching implications because she combines personal, professional knowledge of art, architecture and psychology. Yet Psychitecture builds on ancient design ideas founded by architects, artists and owners of a space who have forever been designing and arranging the interiors of iconic museums, institutions and homes throughout the world. These iconic spaces include the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, St. Mark’s in Venice, the Pantheon in Rome, Taj Mahal in India, Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, palaces as well as castles and fortresses in Germany, Asia and Africa.
We had a great time celebrating the launch of Psychitecture last week in Los Angeles!
