Art by local Saskatoon artists, such as this piece by Hailey Weber, infuses the home with character and personality.

Hidden Gems Shannon has found Instagram to be a valuable source of distinctive Saskatoon-made accent pieces you might not find in a typical boutique. She loves The Little Loop Shop (@littleloopshop) for macramé wall hangings, Lucky Little Shoes (@luckylittleshoes) for upcycled decorative horseshoes, Home by Randi (@homebyrandi) for custom pillows and cushions, and Prairie Knot Co (@prairieknotco) for their rope trays, vessels and baskets. “When it’s handmade it’s just so special. It’s something that isn’t in everybody’s home— it’s unique to yours and I find that really cool.” And it’s those special touches that make Shannon’s lottery home projects shine. She recalls a visitor asking about a photo hanging in the lottery home and the story behind it. “I could say, ‘This was a picture taken at such-and-such a place in Saskatchewan.’ People really connect with that. It’s familiar to them.” Julie Barnes

Shannon designed and sewed the pillows in the second-floor loft area, and had an upholsterer build the matching ottoman.
