Be Careful Displaying Collectibles

Each of these rooms have a critical decorating faux pas.  Can you pick out the mistakes?  Do you know why they are mistakes?  Do you know how to fix them?

If you answered "no" to the questions above, don't fret because you're not alone. Many, many people make these types of mistakes over and over again and do not even know they are breaking some of the most fundamental interior design rules for proper arrangements.

But you can learn the decorating concepts that work every time. Of course, decorating "rules" are successfully broken all the time, but if you don't know what the rules are, how can you successfully "break" them?

Since 1983 I've been designing wall decor for homes and offices, and before that I was a professional graphic designer for 12 years. Whether you're decorating a room or designing a two-dimensional brochure, the design concepts are the same. There must be balance, harmony and unity. The "artist" or "decorator" must draw the eye to a focal point, then guide the viewer in a specific direction around the room, giving the eye a place to rest along the way.  Most people don't know how to do this properly.

wall decor, hanging art Book Reviews
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.

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.'

"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

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."

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.

hanging art, how to hang 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.

The author has 20 year's experience as a freelance graphic designer, artist, corporate art consultant and furniture arrangement specialist and has taught hundreds of women how to manage their own accessory design businesses."
