Pip Studio - Wallpaper

I do not know how many of you know about  Pip Studio , but I'm sure that lots of Romanians haven't heard about it. Since I discovered it in a wallpaper shop in Cluj ( my city) it was love at first sight. I was looking on internet for wallpapers models, but non of them was this complex and graphic. The studio has to offer not just wallpaper, but other amazing products.
Pip Studio is based in Amsterdam and it has such a funny story behind it:

"PIP was born in a small village by the sea as the youngest child of the family. She has three older brothers and a Love bird, or to be more specific, a small African parrot from the genus Agapornis. The Love bird is called Tjommy and it can say its name. Tjommy always sits on her head or shoulder and goes everywhere with her. PIP’s real name is Catharina, but everyone knows her by her nickname. PIP was the first word that she ever spoke and her brothers just started calling her that. The rest of the family soon followed and these days no one knows any different.
After PIP graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, she bought a dilapidated old Victorian house on the outskirts of town. There was no longer any paint on the house and the garden was a wilderness, but PIP fell in love with it the moment she saw it. The house’s most unique feature, to her mind, was the intense northerly light that lit it up when the sun shone and that reminded her of the village where she was born.
PIP created a studio in the attic of her house and dubbed it the PIP studio..."

Love the story, love the products and the it all.
