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"
(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
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.
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
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.
Create elaborate groupings like this. Learn about focal points, balance, unity,
variety, scale, proportion, line, geometric shapes and so forth. Use the easily
reproducible templates at the back of the book
to plan your own groupings on paper before you commit to anything.

BONUS #2:You'll also get access to my brand new special report of 36+ photos that shows you
many different kinds of wall groupings, plus other types of groupings that will make your home
far more interesting and create great conversational areas. I've included notations and comments
about each photo to help you further understand the creative, yet sometimes complex, subject
of designing groupings. It's an exclusive group of images that
you won't find anywhere else and I'm including it as a free bonus. By studying the concepts laid out in the book and looking at current groupings using these
same concepts, you'll see why this book is so timeless, regardless of style or fads that come and go.
"I wanted to let you know that your book Where There's a Wall - There's a Way
saved me hours of frustration and a gallon of spackle! . . . I was able to create attractive
wall groupings that enhanced my furniture arrangements and gave the room a
'professionally decorated' appearance. I am very pleased with the results and
eager to use these techniques on the rest of the house!" - Sandy Finch
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.

Wall Groupings! The Secrets of Displaying Your Art & Photos
Introducing our newest book that will soon replace our older one shown below. Using some of the illustrations from the original book,
this book adds lots of photo examples of both good groupings and poor ones so you can really see what works and what doesn't. But even more important, you'll understand WHY certain arrangements are great and others not so great. This will help you avoid making
the most typical and non-typical mistakes you see in homes (and even in fine decorating magazines and books).
Wall Groupings! picks up where Where There's a Wall - There's a Way leaves off. While there are many more illustrations in the older version (making it ideal to own both copies), you'll find that either choice is an excellent one to learn how
to arrange wall groupings in your home. When the first published book sells out, it will not be reprinted, so if you want both copies, be sure to order them both today. We are on our last box of the original book. For more details, read below.
Includes the following: 1) Learning the Rules; 2) Illustrations of Groupings; 3) A Potpourri of Actual Wall Groupings; 4) Drawing Your Own Ideas; 5) Templates to Copy; 6) The Good, the Bad and the Ugly; 7) Additional Resources.
