About

After almost two decades working for a leading interiors brand, Nina Tarnowski and husband Paul launched their own exciting new venture. Starting from the kitchen table back in 2016, Woodchip & Magnolia has grown to the established luxury British design house it is today. 

The seeds for Nina’s career were sewn many years before. Aged just five, she told her school teacher that she was going to be a wallpaper designer and that’s exactly what she did after graduating from Leeds College of Art in 1997 with a BA (Hons) in Surface Pattern and Textile Design. And now, with her talented eye and daring use of colour and pattern, Nina is the driving creative force behind Woodchip & Magnolia, designing and curating bold, fearless and beautiful wallpaper, murals, fabric and paint.

Nina’s creativity, together with Paul’s technical know-how, enables them to have complete control over the design and printing process from start to finish. Freed from the quarterly deadlines most design studios adhere to, their innovative digital process allows for complete creative expression throughout the traditionally structured seasons. And, flying the flag for British manufacturing and putting nature firmly at the heart of the business, Woodchip & Magnolia proudly produces all its own wallpaper and fabrics in-house to remain as eco-friendly and sustainable as possible. 

Inspired by her love for the natural world, Nina sources much of her inspiration from her doorstep in Lancashire. Every design has a story behind it and has been created to inspire and delight each customer. Alongside the dazzling designs developed in-house, Woodchip & Magnolia collaborates with leading creatives, including fashion designer Pearl Lowe and Fearne Cotton. Each collection taps into the designer’s passions and inspirations, and seamlessly combines interiors with the latest trends.

WOODCHIP & MAGNOLIA WHAT'S NEW PUSSYCAT?













































































Doris - Available in 7 coloursways


Oversized florals and atypical quirks, this is the wallpaper for the originals. For those strong characters who know what they love and embrace it. Jacobean in its style, Doris is a modern take on a whimsical print redrawn by hand.And like its namesake, Nina’s Grandmother Doris, this design is dynamic, courageous and packed with passion. If ever history was reimagined, this is it!


Lepidoptera - Available in 3 colourways 


Butterflies are insects in the macrolepidopteran clade Rhopalocera from the order Lepidoptera. Adult butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight. The Butterfly


Plumage​ - Available in 7 colourways 

At the start of her design career, Nina was told not to use caged birds in her wallpaper designs. You see, there is a superstition that caged birds in the home bring bad luck. It all goes back to the days of taking canaries down the mines to test for deadly poisons in the air.

Plumage in all its glory, sets these caged birds free allowing them to mingle among the rich flora and fauna and bring happy vibes to your home.
