Welcome to Recycled Interiors & The Hub

Welcome to Recycled Interiors & The Hub - Australia's Home For Sustainable, Eco & Vintage Decorating & Design! I am Helen Edwards - Mama, PhD Candidate, blogger, stylist and lover of people and planet. We are unique because you will find our fabulous blog full of ideas, tips & inspiration; our Sustainable Home Hub, where you can find sustainable designers, builders, decorators and products for your home, in your area; our wonderful online store, packed with vintage items; handmade, locally sourced homewares; eco friendly cleaning and green living products; ethical and fair trade pieces, and more; and my sustainable decorating & styling services. 

We are on a mission to encourage slow homes, and quality time spent living in them, rather than making them look like a magazine. Join us to refuse consumption of unethical, poorly made items, and increase sustainable living. Celebrate diversity and your own style, connect more with each other, and reject trends. Stop comparing, don't judge each other, and love where you live. Stop worrying about what other people think and more about what you can do to be happier, healthier, and create a home you love that's better for you, your family and our planet.

At Recycled Interiors we don’t believe in trends. We believe in YOUR style being perfect and in creating a beautiful home that feels just like you. If you believe in a happy healthy life, that cares for you, your family and the planet; if you love vintage, boho and unique decorating and design, DIY, op shopping, pottering in the garden and a good cup of tea, you have come to the right place! I look forward to getting to know you more.

"Helen's blog post & lovely words have helped contribute to my Stump & Cracked Log Lamps trending on Pinterest! I owe her a big thanks. It is pretty crazy to see her blog article about my work being shared over 185,000 times. It feels a bit surreal & something I didn't think would happen when I started out on this journey in the creative world."

"Helen is a lovely, passionate, caring, and sincere person.
