Maison Leontine – @maisonleontinedecoration
Elsa and Louis are the happy owners of this old Norman house, which they are restoring themselves. She is passionate about decorating and he is crazy about DIY. The perfect combination for a successful renovation. We appreciate the decor in soft colors chosen by Elsa and we are impressed by the extent of the work done by Louis. A little more: all their furniture is vintage, they renovated it. We also confirm this advice Elsa gave for repainting your recycled furniture, in an interview with Rénovation & Travaux: “Stay sober. Repainting a piece of furniture in a flashy color means running the risk of getting bored quickly. »

Norman house – @la.maison.normande
A house (Norman again) that combines old and new in chic brocante style. And for good reason, Joanna, the owner, has an online second-hand shop (lalongeredecoration.fr). On his Instagram account you can admire his beautiful Norman house of red brick and white shutters. The interior is a perfect combination of new and old, while respecting the original materials. This house retains a certain authenticity: where the old is updated. In addition to her passion for antiques, she also shares the work she does, where you can see the magnificent transformation of the building.
Huant cat farm – @la_ferme_du_chat_huant
Let’s move on to another style of construction with this barn in the Rhône Alpes region. Coraly and Morgan renovated this 240 m2 barn that belonged to their family themselves. In this transformation, the original charm of the barn was preserved – like beams, bricks, stones. It took these construction novices a year and a half to renovate what they are now proud of. On their Instagram profile, we check their refined and trendy decoration, emphasized by the large volumes of the barn.
Maison Le Chapitre – @maison_lechapitre
If you want to follow the house in full transformation, this account is for you. Stéphanie and Simon are renovating a bourgeois house from 1780 in Beaujolais themselves. This 30-year-old couple shares all the work progress on their character building. They kept all the charm of the old: fireplaces, ceilings with visible beams, stones, moldings… And if they seem good at work, they seem to have good taste too. Their decorating and renovation choices are perfectly coordinated in their new living room.
Our house 1932 – @ourhouse1932
Now let’s go to Brittany, to the millstone from the 1930s, which Amandine and “JP” restored themselves. Once again we find the charm of the old: the favorite stained glass windows in their bathroom. They have adopted a decoration that is both modern and classic – but also smart and functional. In fact, on their Instagram profile, we can see their ultra-optimized wardrobe and wardrobes in the attic spaces. We also like to discover works before/after 2009.
