Product and Interior Styling - (limited availability)
Sustainable Interior Styling - limited availability for 2017/2018
Recycled Interiors decorating and styling services are unique, as my focus is on reuse, rearrange, recycle, upcycle, vintage, secondhand, handmade and locally made, sustainable and eco friendly products and materials. I can work with you on your next decorating project and help you with advice on reusing, rearranging and upcycling items you already have, to create a new look. Where new items are needed, I will provide advice on sustainable options for your fittings, fixtures, finishes, homewares and furnishings. If needed I can go further in sourcing what is needed; and in the final stages of a full decorating and styling service, I can also provide you with a full install and style service.
Please purchase your initial consult here and then send me a brief description of your decorating project and I will be in touch to discuss the best options.
Your initial 1-hour consultation in person in Adelaide, or via skype or telephone for interstate clients, allows me to understand your needs, and the size of the project. This will enable me to quote a proper cost for the project; and draw up concepts. We will look at current layout and design, what items may be able to be reused, what additional items could be recommended; develop concepts for mood boards; project needs, timelines and most importantly how you would love your home to feel and look. After the first 1 hour consultation I will provide a written quote and plan for the project with my recommendations.
Rates and details
- Initial 1-hour consultation $169 via telephone/skype or in person in Adelaide (within 10 km of my location - outside this additional travel time will be charged and we will discuss this on booking) Head here to book the consult
- Rates after this will be $95 per hour. If you are looking at reusing only and will not need many additional items, it may be as simple as 2 - 4 hours to complete the room. If you have an entire home needing some work, it may be as much as 2 days or more of work. However a package deal will be negotiated if there is a larger job required, rather than a simple hourly rate, which can get costly.
- Payment for the first consultation is required in full prior to the consultation.
- To book your initial consultation make the payment and then send me an email with your project brief and contact details, and I will be back in touch within 4 business days.

Tanya, decorating client
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. I do not live in my own home, and after our initital consultation, it became apparent very quickly from the emails and messages that Helen sent me with pix of things she was sourcing on my behalf ... that she was definately on my page, and I really got excited about making some permanent purchases, without spending any money on structural improvements, just things that I could move along with if that time ever comes. She came back with bits and peices ideas and thoughts to run past me and surprisingly most of everything she was sourcing was absolutely to my taste....it was like I was not sure of what I liked myself until Helen sensed it in me and then showed me what it was! 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. This has been a massive win for me as I really dont have the time or inclination to go sourcing on-line or in-house. Having Helen constantly throw ideas and thoughts my way was empowering for me as well as the comfort of knowing that someone was holding my hand through all my previous indecisiveness. An exciting adventure for me....which isn't over yet...and I would absolutely recommend anyone going on an adventure with Helen....you will NEVER regret it!

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 consulted Helen at Recycled Interiors regarding the south facing Dining Room in my 1940's house. It was quite dark, & had previously been a kitchen. I wanted to maximise space & light & retain thematic links to the original '40's house. Helen provided a large vintage Wall Unit + Dining chairs which she had sourced, and 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 in with the theme & also with the existing Dining table, which I inherited & wanted to retain. 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.
