Spring is on its way! Based on what Willie the groundhog predicted, it should be here sooner rather than later. Now for my prediction—you are going to love this spring issue full of our Reader Panel’s story selections that we’ve been nurturing over the last number of months. In this season of renewal and new life, we salute the Colour of the Year (pg. 8). The 2016 blended choice is a fresh combo, but don’t be fooled by these beautiful baby hues; they carry big design industry clout. Speaking of design, we love Saskatoon’s own dynamic duo Curtis Elmy and Trevor Ciona, principal designers and owners of Atmosphere Interior Design. If you’re building a new kitchen or renovating one that just doesn’t work for you, let Curtis lead you through ten top considerations for making the heart of your home a real heart stopper (pg. 25). We’ve got a lot of family-focused pieces and news you need: how to grow vines (pg. 52), get personal with alien babies (don’t worry, it’s just kombucha) (pg. 56), learn about co-housing (pg. 41), and understand why we should embrace a little imperfection in our lives through wabi-sabi, an aesthetic rooted in Zen Buddhism, albeit in a wobbly handmade pot (pg. 46). Saskatoon’s sunshine, abundant light, and spectacular river valley

SPRING 2016

views enticed architect Darrel Epp and psychologist Lynne Wawryk-Epp to design a unique home on Saskatchewan Crescent. Expansive floor to ceiling windows gives them front row seats to the daily drama unfolding in the river valley. And wait until you see what happens when they invite the light inside to play (pg. 15). With a DIY outdoor fireplace, a Forest Grove family creates an inviting family space that friends love to frequent, too. Seriously, “No s’mores for me. I don’t like them,” said no one ever (pg. 66). What started as a tree nursery in 1914, the Forestry Farm and Zoo is one of our most popular attractions year around. Jeff O’Brien shares the unique evolution of this important historical Saskatoon destination (pg. 60). That, and more, in your spring issue of Saskatoon HOME. Wait, what’s that noise? Oh, it’s the sound of almost no more snow shoveling! Happy reading! AMANDA SOULODRE OWNER & PUBLISHER
