What is my opinion of Monaco thus far?
Was it Somerset Maugham who called it a “sunny place for shady people?” Hmm. Well, I think Monaco needs a re-brand. And I am the perfect person to re-think the principality’s mission statement. Is it a city, a resort, a place for only high rollers?
Here are some quick taglines:
Monaco. Simply Marvelous! Monaco. Anything Goes! Monaco. Everything Under the Sun.
They should hire me to distill down Monaco and sell it to a new generation. The arts, the restaurants, the hotels, the sports, the green initiatives… Tone down the bling, and bring up the chic.
But that’s my hospitality consulting hat speaking here: This blog is all about fabulous lifestyles and interiors. And not about rebranding Central Park-sized countries. If you want to know more about my branding abilities, you’ll visit www.lxj360.com, n’est-ce pas?
So last week I asked our lovely cabal of subscribers to send in images of their “before” and “after” projects, and here’s what the chic Cheri sent in. She says the “after” picture looks “granny,” but I don’t agree. I think it’s fabulous.
Tell me what you think.
