Helen PR 5 small


Welcome! I am Helen Edwards - Mama, PhD Candidate, blogger, writer, seller of wares, creator, vintage and boho stylist and lover of people and planet. We are on a mission to stop fast interiors fashion, encourage slow homes and  time spent living in them rather than making them look like a magazine, refuse consumption of unethical, poorly made items, and increase sustainable living. Join us and celebrate diversity and your own style, connect more with each other, and reject trends. We want you to stop comparing, don't judge each other, #dropthemumguilt and love where you live with our #realhomesmovement. 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, and create a home you love that's better for you, your family and our planet. 

Recycled Interiors and The Sustainable Home Hub is your go-to resource for being sustainable, healthy and happy at home. Create a home YOU love. No matter how big or small, whether it has cracks and knocks, needs some work or is perfect the way it is – your home is YOURS. Whether you rent, buy, or live at home, you have the right to create a space that makes you feel happy and secure.

NEVER let anyone tell you that you are “outdated” or that you are just not “on trend”. At Recycled Interiors we don’t believe in trends.

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 through our blog posts, Recycled Interiors Store, the Sustainable Home Hub, and most of all, our wonderful community.

If you believe in a happy healthy life, that cares for you, your family and the planet; if you love vintgae, 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!
