Russ and Elissa have made their home in a two-story 1921 bungalow in Columbus' Merion Village. Despite the short time they've occupied their residence, Russ, president of campaign-paraphernalia company Tigereye Design, and Elissa, a manager at an upscale children's boutique, have used Easter egg-hued paint, fanciful accessories and a carefully edited selection of vintage furniture to imbue the rental with personality.
