Oh Helen, do you realise how much 'like' traffic one little share creates! You are so lovely and supportive and I can't thank you enough. I wish you lived close by so I could give you a big thank you hug, so I'm hugging from afar!!! Thanks so much x Leah
Helen is a lovely, passionate, caring, sincere person. Her push for quality and sustainable living is inspiring, and it strongly shows in her work. I was touched when she asked to do a feature on my work, as her blog site compliments my work, and my ethics around supporting the planet!!
Recently I had the pleasure to work with Helen Edwards, the experience was refreshing & positive. The out come, was a well structured & beautifully presented E-Interview. Helen's dedication to her Website, Recycled Interiors encourages the human race to practice sustainable living, share ideas & have tons of fun along the way. Vale Helen Edwards you are a blessing.

My business partner Belinda and I admire Helen Edwards expertise online, so booked for a consultation on our blog, social media and advertising campaigns. We were delighted at her willingness to share great tips and advice in her warm and friendly style. She is genuinely interested in helping businesses online to improve and I highly recommend her services. Thank you Helen

We used Helen to help us select paint colours for a refresh of the interior and exterior of our home. Nothing was too much trouble. Very collaborative and willing to both listen to our preferences as well as provide her own opinion. Helen was happy to get as involved as we needed and wasn't pushy and is such a lovely person to deal with. Recommended.
I lost all my homemaking desire and skills over the years due to a series of events and circumstances, I was just worn down with having dreams but never living them in the end even dreaming the dreams got lost on me, so when I came across Helen at Recycled Interiors things started to change for me.
Helen is a massive talent with an abundant energy for this business. She has what seems to be to me an amazing eye for detail and concepts. I would absolutely recommend anyone going on an adventure with Helen....you will NEVER regret it!
I consulted Recycled Interiors regarding the south facing Dining Room in my 1940's house. I wanted to maximise space & light & retain thematic links to the original '40's house. Helen provided a large Wall Unit + Dining chairs which she had sourced & advised me on how they could be upcycled to fit my desired themes. She also provided extensive advice regarding colour & texture for the whole room, & how the wall unit & chairs might be refinished in order to fit. Her advice regarding wall & floor finishes fitted perfectly with my own ideas. I found her to be creative & very prepared to listen to my ideas & wishes.
I couldn't have asked for a better social media and business mentor. Helen is not only so easy to talk to but really know her stuff. Helen has shown me lots of ways to increase my social media reach which I have put into place, with good results. Thank you so much Helen for your valuable insight into online business and your passion to share your knowledge with a small business like mine!
