Rooms on Film: Enough Said (Marianne's House)

Let's have a look at the second of three lovely homes in the 2013 film, Enough Said. Unlike main character, Eva's (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) little suburban two bedroom, Marianne's (Catherine Keener) house is just a little more..something I can't quite put my finger on. Certainly Eva is impressed when she first visits the home. This one is also in a suburban neighborhood, but the location seems to offer some cooler outdoor decoration options.

So, thank you, domino. I can finally appreciate my all-time favorite profile without wearing cotton gloves to protect the pages.

Rustic Canisters

paddle wood & glass food cannisters from pottery barn

These wood-topped glass canisters caught my eye. The rustic lids are very earthy. For the right price, I'd like some in my kitchen. The only space for canisters is on the window sill, really. Perfect spot to see them every time I'm in there.
