At the height of her career, the French chanteuse Édith Piaf (1915-1963) sang of living “La Vie en Rose,” a life lived through rose-colored glasses, where pleasures were heightened and worries were dashed. Her life was certainly more complicated than that, but her ability to project power and confidence from her tiny frame made her the quintessential diva, beloved by fans all over the world for her ability to live a full life with “no regrets.” Piaf spent much of her time at Mas Plascassier in Grasse, her beloved retreat on the French Riviera, where a serene physical setting and warm, unpretentious interior provided the perfect antidotes to the fast-paced life of a Parisian superstar.
