       Kassie & Luis met with  Brooke  to see how they could take advantage of the BankIt program, a perk offered to all our LC renters! They set their search for the Westerville area and were open to Gahanna, but hoped to find the perfect home in Westerville so they could be in close proximity to work.      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     They kept their search short but sweet, finding this single family abode after checking out only a few homes! After several upgrades Kassie & Luis put their personal stamp on their new space. Having decorated their living room to a tee, it’s an ideal space to relax and watch a late night movie.         

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


       They transformed their home with light and airy paint colors and even swapped the brown kitchen cabinetry to a perfect shade of mint green. In addition to cabinetry, backsplash was also on their list and they decided on a classic white subway tile.           

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


       After settling in, it seems their pups Charlie and Sophie are loving their new home too!      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     Thanks Kassie and Luis for letting us take a peek! Until next time, give Charlie and Sophie another snuggle for us!

      The Perfect Condo  Life in John's Space     

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     John is a fun-loving, laid-back guy who is always up for a challenge. He has a slew of home improvements and renovations under his belt, so when he was looking for something new, he wanted a place that offered the convenience of maintenance-free living while still allowing him to renovate and add his personal touch.       

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


       John found the perfect condo — he’s in a neighborhood with a community feel, full of friendly neighbors, and he could get to work planning his reno projects right away. He started the interior redo by replacing the flooring throughout…and he installed it all himself!     

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     He offered some great advice for aspiring DIY’ers: look beyond what is currently there, don’t get caught up in what it is now, but picture what it can become. John is also a huge fan of setting a budget for projects and, more importantly, sticking to that budget. He likes to shop around for the best prices and does his best to avoid impulse buying. His go-to one stop shop is  Menards ; he recommends them for their quality inventory, budget-friendly prices, and the ease of shopping there.       

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


    

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


       Now that he’s done renovating (for the moment), John’s condo is sleek and modern with cool tones. Check out his hardwood floors, gray walls, tons of natural light, and an overall homey feel.     

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


       Before he gets started on the next project, John’s summer plans include entertaining his friends on his back patio and lounging by the pool — this is a guy who enjoys the good life!  John, your condo is a total ten! Thanks for letting us take a peek.

      Skip's House  A look Inside This Vintage Charmer     

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     Our friends Randall and Molly call  Merion Village  their home, having recently bought a fabulous vintage charmer with tons of character. They are a fun loving, active couple who enjoy spending time with their pup Skip, soaking up the perks of city living, and entertaining their friends and family. What do they love about their new home? Think 12 foot ceilings, seriously cool antique lighting fixtures, exposed brick, ornate trim, spacious rooms, and a killer communal space perfect for sipping a glass of wine and watching the sun set.       

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


       Choosing Merion Village was easy — Molly spent some extended time in Germany during college and shortly after, and fell in love with the aesthetic and style of homes there. She wanted to find a place that embodied the character of the community she experienced overseas. The brick roads, historical homes, and good food drew her to the neighborhood.     

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     There’s tons of history in a home like this, so Randall and Molly wanted to decorate with the character of the space in mind. They’ve had fun finding interesting and historic pieces to fill their home by digging into their family’s basements and attics, and stopping at a few yard sales to find some hidden gems.       

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     Also, since Molly is a gal of many talents, she has used her knack for painting to create art to display throughout the home (and it’s pretty darn amazing.)     

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


       A community like Merion Village boasts so much potential, and Randall and Molly are excited to be a part of the growth and opportunities that are yet to come. For now, they (and Skip) are enjoying their slice of paradise!
