2. The FarmHouse Dream
Do you want to know everything about farmhouse style? It’s Joëlle Frechette’s style of choice. Based in Montréal, her blog The FarmHouse Dream is a great source of inspiration. Her photos with soft colours and warm tones are real eye candy.
Whether posts are explanations of her decorating projects or her favourite places to shop, Joëlle shares her ingenious, clever ideas.
She also has a drop-dead gorgeous Instagram account.
Déconome is “the blog about good, affordable home decorating ideas.” That’s the motto of Stéphanie Guéritaud, its author. A journalist and stylist for Éditions Pratico-pratiques, Stéphanie created her blog in 2010. She is passionate about decoration, especially when it’s creative and accessible.
Read by nearly 1.25 million people yearly, her blog Déconome speaks to DIY enthusiasts and anyone who wants to decorate and renovate without breaking the bank.
Ideas and good sources for all budgets so everyone can save on decorating and even renovating while making their homes more beautiful—that’s what Stéphanie’s blog is all about.
Her other social media are just as inspiring since she regularly publishes creative content.
This blog is a treasure trove of practical advice and concrete tips for your renovations. Daphne, the author, does her own renovations and shares her experiences with us. She speaks frankly and addresses, in particular, renovation costs and common mistakes to avoid.
We recommend the sections “Trucs & conseils” (“Tips and Advice”) and “Réalisations” (“Projects”) under the “Maison” (“Home”) heading. For decorating, check out the “Saisonnier” (“Seasonal”) and “Inspirations” (“Inspirations”) sections.
