We are excited to launch Genevieve’s second collection for Tempaper. The six new prints play upon the sophisticated nature of her previous collection.

“Words cannot explain how much I enjoy the process of creating pattern,” says Genevieve Gorder. “With a strong understanding of mass, a strong eye for next and a strong partner like Tempaper…this line has been such a joy to create.”



The Genevieve Gorder for Tempaper spring collection is as versatile as it is chic. With patterns that can be applied to a variety of settings, the collection challenges both designers and end-users to embolden their imagination. Defining the aesthetic character of the collection as a whole, the best-selling, scalloped repeat, Brass Belly will be unveiled in two metallic colorways: Pearl and Pewter. The pattern’s design celebrates the fusing of the contemporary with the classic, integrating a traditional pattern with modern detail. This concept is repeated throughout the collection’s additional styles, including Ghosted Cactus . The pattern is painterly in style, with delicately drawn cacti printed in a vertical orientation for a wallcovering offering that is both playful and bright. The Sexy Serpentine pattern contrasts with its muted color range, yet connects with the gracious lines Genevieve has imbued throughout each print. Tightly curled loops of brass and hits of metallic pearl are woven together into a wave-like pattern that truly makes an unprecedented splash in elevated interiors. A bold cityscape filled with detail, New York Toile is a fashionable hybrid of classic French styling juxtaposed with a modern, urban NY landscape and chinoiserie like details. Finally, the result of diligently conceived details, Maya’s Papayas is illustrated using burnt orange hues and finite painterly strokes for a pattern that is as fresh as it is timeless.

“We are thrilled to collaborate once again with Genevieve,” says Jennifer Matthews, co-founder of Tempaper. “Her soulful style, evident in both collections, has a magnetism that continues to inspire our buyers. We look forward to seeing how each pattern is creatively used.”
