Woodchip & Magnolia is headed by Nina Marika Tarnowski a self-confessed wallpaper, patternandcolouraddict.
Obsessed with pattern andcolourfor as long as she can remember, Nina told her teacher at five she wanted to be a wallpaper designer! After graduating from Leeds College of Art in 1997 with a BA (Hons) in Surface Pattern and Textile Design Nina worked 18 years as a Head Stylist /Design Manager for British wallpaper manufacturer, Graham & Brown.
Nina honed her craft before computer aided technology exploded onto the scene when every singlecolour-waywas hand painted, and every design layout washand drawnin full repeat. It is this rich experience in traditional craftsmanship, combined with new, digital technological know-how, which gives her a truly unique edge.
“We like to do things differently. We don’t follow trends or have a signature style. We create what we want and launch when the mood suits.
