Irregular Lines is a design studio specialising in creating imaginative, ecofriendly spaces using natural and environmentally conscious methods. Their unique approach ensures that each space is distinct and unforgettable, making them the perfect choice for your next project. When asked about what inspired her early on, Theodora reminisces about her childhood in Greece. With her father running a successful tile construction company and her mother as a curtain designer, Theodora was exposed to creative problem-solving, technical issues, and the development of style from a young age. This upbringing, along with the guidance of other designers, who subsequently became her childhood mentors, nurtured her passion for design.
“I've worked in this field since I was 18 years old and have been developing, sketching and designing since my 15 at high school. I've always known what I wanted to do with my life."

With a calming color palette and thoughtfully selected loose furnishings, the Greek roots of "blue cuisine" are evident throughout. The various textures used engages the senses, creating a serene ambiance reminiscent of Santorini and Mykonos whilst enjoying the sumptuous offerings of communal dining.
Theodora Martinou has an unmatched eye for curating and creating spaces focusing on earthy influences. In every project, Irregular Lines blends utilitarian design (ie. considering practicality more than aesthetics) with exotic and sustainable elements that brings to mind the iconic architectural masterpieces of the Mediterranean. The design studio is committed to providing ecoconscious interior design and artisanal home decoration made from sustainable materials that are unique to their signature style.
“Our natural environment is loaded with inspirational components. Land, rock, trees, water, and sky all holds universal images The possibilities for mixing these five elements alone are endless."
