When Kate Worum and Jenny Hornig met, they instantly became best friends. They were presented by two people who thought they would complement each other’s style, creativity and drive, and they turned out to be right. The couple quickly developed a friendship and began to find places for each other in their work, which developed into a business partnership. While Worum specialized in illustration and Hornig in architecture and interior design, they were able to merge the two passions to launch She She, a Minneapolis-based multidisciplinary print and pattern studio specializing in wallpaper, fabric and upholstery.

In their latest venture, She She has teamed up with Tempaper, a leading removable wallpaper brand, to launch a collection of peel and stick prints inspired by their travels to the beautiful island of Curacao. The grounds embody the energy and wilderness character of the charming Dutch Caribbean destination.

The She She x Tempaper collection features four stunning prints: Queen Emma, ​​Flamingos Salinas, Flamboyan and Maria en Patricia. Each design captures unique characteristics of their whimsical experience. The colors of the patterns reflect those of the crystal clear water and the soothing, sunny tones of the Curaçao countryside.

Their first stop after checking into their beautiful hotel on the humble island of Curacao was the Queen Emma Bridge in Willemstad. When they started admiring the colorful buildings that line the waterfront, they thought, “If she drew a city, this could be what it would look like”, and the view inspired the vision for the first print in the collection. , nicknamed Queen Emma. .

Meanwhile, Maria en Patricia is a beautiful, detailed selection of blue and white patterns, depicting images of greenery, orange trees, flamingos, caged birds, playful hat-wearing parrots, cacti, flowers , etc. Feminine yet fun, this peel and stick option is a dynamic choice for offices, powder rooms and small spaces.

Worum and Hornig prioritized seeing wild flamingos on this trip, so trudging through the Salinas (muddy salt ponds) was an easy yes for them. Even though they lost a flip-flop and ruined a dress in the adventure, it was worth it, and they saw a “flamboyance” of flamingos that influenced the Flamingo Salinas print.

The last pattern, Flamboyan, comes from the Flaming Flamboyan tree of Curacao. The flowers of these trees are the most delicate little blooms that create soft textured foliage for any space.
