Nina Marika Wallpaper
Woodchip & Magnolia is headed by Nina Marika Tarnowski a self-confessed wallpaper, pattern and colour addict.
Obsessed with pattern and colour for 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 single colour-way was hand painted, and every design layout was hand drawn in 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.
