    Matt and Bryn Dunn in their family room with their dog Charlotte. When they moved from California to Charlotte, they were able to afford to purchase their first home in Ballantyne and furnish it with the things they love. Bryn, who is a decorator and blogger, decorated the four-bedroom Colonial-style home on a low budget but found some great pieces, including many of their favorites from Craigslist and flea markets. Their home illustrates that style and taste don't depend upon a budget. The Hearst publication HGTV Magazine features the home in its February 2014 issue.
