Heckerling wanted to spin her combination of Emma and Gidget in the setting of a Beverly Hills high school, which she envisioned as a “hyper-pastel fantasy place.” To create the movie’s totally quotable dialogue, Heckerling sat in on classes to get a feel for how teens in the ’90s talked. But Cher’s classic “As if!” actually came from the lesbian community. Heckerling explained, “Any outsider group is going to create their own language—whether it’s homosexual, black, prisoners, or cabdrivers. You just have to be willing to open your ears and listen.”
Adore this Scandinavian house I found at Decoholic.org, via Dwelling Gawker.
This rustic Scandinavian house doesn’t seem to get any better—that is, if you are comfortable with the low-ceilings. With angled nooks and crannies that dictate the shape of the rooms, this home is as original as it is humble.
When one enters, they are welcomed by rough white walls colorfully decorated by ethnic hangings. A floating wooden staircase stands to the left, and when one follows the waxed floorboards to the kitchen, they are enveloped by a low ceiling that gives off an instantly comfy feel. The counters are kept simple with black, but there is no lack in decorations—the small table is whimsically decorated with a patterned tablecloth, and small food containers line the tops of the cabinets…
All in all, this house is a quaint and perfect house for those who enjoy the simpler approach to life. While using rich colors such as stark reds and greens, this Scandinavian house promises cozy winter mornings and perfect summer afternoons for everyone, as each can find his or her own space in the nooks and crannies of this two-floored gem.
