La Vie en Rose- Remodeling with the Right Attitude
“Life in Pink” or “Life through Rose-Colored Glasses”, i.e., a cheerful, optimistic attitude. ‘La Vie en rose’ was a popular song released in 1947 by French singer, Édith Piaf describing the nation’s hopeful spirit after World War II. It is a very recognizable tune, symbolic of the joyous and romantic Parisian experience.
Is there joy and romance in the remodeling process? Probably more of a love/hate relationship. Love the initial phase of imagined possibilities. Love transforming possibilities into a working design plan. Hate the mess. Hate when issues arise. It’s always best to be pragmatic, patient and prepared to roll with the punches. Theme song suggestions? I’d go for Monty Python’s ‘Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life’.
