wall grouping design, arranging art Read these book reviews. Imagine being able to create a stunning wall grouping or gallery wall in your home, just like the breathtaking ones you see in home decorating magazines. It's easier than you think, when you know how. Here are some of the reviews that our book Where There's a Wall - There's a Way has received.

Book Review One - Miami Herald Review

 "Book helps you create whatever wall you want"
"Do people think your decorating ideas are a bit off the wall? Are you being driven up the wall by pounding six extra nails in the wall while trying to hang a picture on the wall?

If so, hang in there. Help is on the way. Accessory design specialist Barbara Jennings has released a 128-page book, Where There's a Wall -- There's a Way.

"Dear Barbara, I just received your 'Where There's a Wall - There's a Way' book and I also have your 'Decor Secrets Revealed' eBook and love them both. They have a lot of great suggestions and will be very helpful. - Millie Schara"

hanging art, hanging pictures, art, wall decor (Shown is copy of article interview with Barbara Jennings in American Baby Magazine, February, 2005, by Kate Kelly.) She not only explains 20 design techniques that will help you create an attractive wall arrangement, but she also includes 101 line drawings of wall grouping ideas for small walls, large walls, narrow walls, stairway walls and cathedral ceiling walls. She shows, step by step, how to effectively coordinate pictures, plants, shelves, mirrors, lamps, pottery, clocks and art objects.

'Most people don't realize the importance of good placement,' said Jennings. 'All too often they have an improper mix, their spacing is erratic and too far apart, they don't understand proportion and balance, and their groupings are not properly hung in relationship to nearby furniture.'

A major benefit for readers is the inclusion of the dimensions for pictures that she used in her line drawings. 'I've chosen the most popular sizes available from local galleries or framers,' she explains. 'This feature helps the reader understand proper positioning when hanging several pictures together in the same grouping.'

The book also includes a separate set of individual line drawings of each of the items used in the 101 illustrated ideas."

Book Review Two - Daily Pilot Review

"Book illustrates 101 ways to arrange pictures and other wall hangings"
"Have you ever bought the perfect picture only to find when you got it home that it didn't look just right hanging on the wall? Have you ever decided you wanted to arrange a gallery wall or grouping but didn't know where to begin?

Every individual who has decorated a home or apartment has run into these problems at some time or other.

wall decorating, how to hang art, artwork, decorate with art Barbara Jennings of Huntington Beach has authored a 128-page book called Where There's a Wall -- There's a Way. It was immediately popular among professionals nationwide as it illustrates 101 wall arrangement ideas.

Beginning with basic arrangements using standard sized pictures, the book gradually incorporates other decor elements, such as mirrors, lamps, shelves, plants and wall clocks. The range of ideas covers symmetrical and asymmetrical arrangements to be hung above furniture, as well as ideas for hallways, staircases and gallery groupings.

Tips on design rules, such as proportion, scale, balance, rhythm, color, variety, texture, focal points, size and unity are included, as well as suggestions for hanging the finished arrangements with ease.

Learn how to take a wide variety of things, like you see in the pictures below, and arrange them in a more effective and attractive manner. It's easy when you know how.

    interior redesign training, home staging training, furniture arrangement furniture arrangements, furniture placement, arranging furniture, arranging accessories The book, while first published in 1986, discusses all of the important concepts that go into arranging multiple pieces together, whether it be art, pictures, shelves, plants, lamps, furniture and accessories. The design concepts never change, though styles do and fads come and go. The design concepts, however, are forever. So the reasoning behind the arrangements of yesterday, today and tomorrow will always remain. Only the colors and styles of individual items changes.

    I currently have tons of magazines in my office depicting all kinds of wall groupings that professional designers have created in the last 3 months alone. Each arrangement could have easily been lifted right out of this book, because the design concepts don't change. They will be as relevant 50 years from today as they are now or were 20 years ago.

    As a free bonus, you'll also receive a recent wallgrouping report that is filled with picture after picture of current wall groupings of today. You'll be amazed at the variety. These groupings may be just art on a wall, or they may be art combined with furniture, or they may be collector plates or a combination of many different elements, all neatly and expertly arranged by professionals. Hopefully they will trigger your own creativity to kick into gear and help you create breathtaking arrangements of your own, using the art and accessories and furniture you already own.
