Our Story

We may be new kids on the block, but we really know our stuff!

Woodchip & Magnolia is the creative amalgamation of over 30 years of experience in commercial wallpaper and textile manufacturing.

It’s a business built on solid experience, a need to break all the rules, and a love of supporting others make their wallpaper dreams a reality. We’re a passionate and ambitious family run business, priding ourselves on our technical knowledge, together with a strong design and colour aesthetic.

We like to shout from the rooftops about wallpaper, pattern and gorgeous colour palettes! Always retaining one eye on the detail, we’re totally hooked on how wallpaper should flow across the wall.

We’re endlessly enthusiastic, and believe in making friends and building strong partnerships as the industry evolves and our business grows.

About Nina Marika Tarnowski

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, she worked her way up from a graduate placement to Design Manager.

Nina worked for over 18 years as Head Stylist /Design Manager for British wallpaper manufacturer, Graham & Brown, before computer aided technology exploded onto the scene. Nina honed her craft at a time 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 do what we want when we feel like it, together with creatives who share the same passion and ethos.
