Introducing Hidden Gems
Buried deep within me is an inextinguishable love of the colors, spices, food, patterns, landscape, décor, and poetry of Morocco. If we each have a soul place, Morocco is mine. On a recent visit to Indianapolis, I was inspired by the color scheme and tiles at the Saffron Café to create a new display space in the Library called “Hidden Gems.”
The colors at the Saffron Café are vibrant, suggestive of the souks or markets of Marrakesh. I created a collage of some of my favorite images of Morocco for a color scheme. The books that we select to place in “Hidden” Gems” are gleaned from the stacks, and are meant to give a second shelf life to some of our favorites that you might have missed.
I hope that you enjoy our “Hidden Gems” display and find a treasure of your own!
May happiness follow you wherever you read!
