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.
Byrum incorporated a color palette of blues and grays for the house; D’Nova Design fabricated the sheer Holly Hunt linen curtains for the living room as well as the pillows on the sofa. Walnut lounge chairs from Design Within Reach.
A second-level dining deck expands the living area.

Byrum enlisted the expertise of landscape designer Bill Roberts of 3 Phase Design Studio to give the house more exterior living space. A new rooftop deck brings the lights of downtown to life.
Landscape designer Bill Roberts used tri-color limestone paving on the patios.
