    see the future in pink

    Hello,

    I don't know if the phrase 'to see something in pink' is a real English idiom or not.We have this phrase in our language, Hungarian, but I don't know its English equivalent.Could someone help me with this?

    Is it correct to say: 'Jim is really optimistic, he always sees the future in pink.'

    Thank you,
    heyt

    He always imagines a rosy future.
    To him, the future is always rosy.

    Also 'He sees the world through rose-coloured glasses'.

    through rose-colored glasses

    With an unduly cheerful, optimistic, or favorable view of things: see the world through rose-colored glasses.

    I've always used "rose-tinted​ glasses" for that phrase.
