Our SPITIKO Collection

Photos: Copyright © 2015 Marilia Fotopoulou

"Interior" Decoration" by Maria Fotopoulou is a series of photographic visits to Athenian homes, focusing on the reception areas. The space is often crowded with old family portraits, paintings, and personal treasures. This traditional, old world Athenian style is what inspired our SPITIKO Collection, Greek for "items for the home." Old relics used by Greek yiayias like lace doilies and metal cafe trays used for decades are reimagined again by young, Athenian artists today. Take a look at this collection and discover items for your home.

I grew up in Austin, Texas where I was first introduced to the colors of Mexican interiors and spent my summers in Greece where my yiayia taught me the holy trinity of Greek cooking: lemons, olive oil, and salt. After studying photography and environmental policy at Sewanee: The University of the South I earned my B.A. in 2009 and moved to Washington, DC to work on political and public advocacy campaigns for The Nature Conservancy where I learned about message development, strategic planning, and feasibility research. In 2014, after the birth of my daughter and in an effort to strengthen my Greek ties and resurrect my photography I launched an e-shop called, ANGELIKI, where I share my hand-picked selection of my favorite Greek designs.

My love for fonts, film, and finesse has always remained true throughout this journey. Today, I live in Atlanta, Georgia and and work full-time as a mother, photographer, website publisher and shop curator
