A NEW NEST

An Austin couple who had become empty nesters enlisted Austin-based interior designer Vickee Byrum of Yellow Door Design to help them create a sophisticated residence reminiscent of a New York pied-a-terre overlooking Central Park. The couple’s three-story house—recently renovated by a team from Dick Clark + Associates—sits among oak trees on a near-downtown hillside, and imagining a walk-to-dinner lifestyle in their new home made perfect sense.
