Rose Quartz is the best complimentary color of 2016

This 2016 year Pantone actually selected two colors: Rose Quartz and Serenity (light blue). I’m pretty much obsessed with both of the colors, but today’s post was mainly inspired by one, as you can tell by the photos. What colors are feminine or masculine or gender-neutral? I believe that genders were created by the marketing as a result of the Industrialization and automatically same happened with the colors. In the mid 19th, the colors weren’t gender. Pink had only one meaning “Pink lovers optimistic and positive and they see the good in everyone”.So if you’re looking for a great neutral…

Home Staging and Redesign

Why do we need Home Staging? You never ever get a second chance to make a first impression! The way you live in your house is not the way you market and sell your house! A professionally staged home is an investment that is tax deductible and usually less than your first price reduction, not to mention you’re carrying costs of lingering on the market for an extended period of time. I believe it’s a significant financial advantage to the home seller! HOME STAGING & INTERIOR REDESIGN SOLUTIONS The STAGING SOLUTION is to assist my clients as an HSR Certified…

Home Staging in Modern Marrakech Style for Rented House at Hillsborough, California

Bohemian style, also known as Boho, is a unique modern design theme with roots in old British and European styles. Boho-chic is a style that is largely influenced by the hippie movement of the 1960’s and 1970’s and aspects of the design are found throughout fashion and interior design today. The design is characterized by loose, free-flowing themes, ethnic patterns, colors, florals, mandalas, lace and an overall idea of being a free spirit. That’s what I manifested in my yoga clients house. Inspiration, Idea and Photography, Masha Melnik, 2016   Copyright© by Art and Design Assistance 2013-2017. All rights reserved


It was a great idea to mix elements from different times, creating a timeline of sorts from the past to the present. Iconic vintage pieces of art and furniture often define an era and play an important role in the character of the space. My goal  was to evoke pleasant memories and associations with France and Polynesia to create a familiar and conformable modern home. I used very warm colors, natural wood, and patterns to make this space livable and cozy. Designed by Masha Melnik. 2011 Copyright© by Art and Design Assistance 2013-2017. All rights reserved

My Ethnic feelings 

 If you love vivacious colors and have a penchant for the exotic, you’ll find an ethnic-style quite impressive and interesting. My favorite variation of ethnic style is African (which usually includes Moroccan and Egyptian). An ethnic style is very bright, dynamic, lively and original. It brings atmosphere and essences to your space. You can easily identify this style by the drawings with an imitation of animal skins on fabrics, walls and even on the floor. They are present in the paintings, mosaics, and other decorative elements. And of course, African style can not do without black figurines in the form…

Warmer metals in 2016

Warmer metals have been so hot the past few years and show no signs of slowing down. I love a good brass, gold, bronze and copper moment in Industrial space. It’s a very modern approach to design to not match up all your metallics throughout the house. That’s really the way people live. This pink like hue has a sophistication and softness that flatters every design scheme. Particularly effective in the bathroom and kitchen space, rose gold, brass, copper and gold will continue to dominate in 2016 according to London-based interior designer Gemma Gordon-Duff of Gordon–Duff & Linton who suggests…
