Welcome to Recycled Interiors - your home for sustainable decorating

we invite you to join our REAL HOMES movement & Create a Home YOU love that's better for you & our planet.

join the real homes movement!

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

We do believe in YOUR style being perfect and in creating a beautiful home that feels just like you. We want to help you create a home that is better for you and the planet.

If you believe in a happy healthy life, that cares for you, your family and the planet; if you love decorating and design, DIY, op shopping, pottering in the garden and a good cup of tea, you have come to the right place!
