The Cyberabad police Monday arrested four more persons allegedly involved in the kidnap and murder of Hemanth Kumar, a 28-year-old interior designer in Hyderabad, who was allegedly killed by his in-laws on September 25 for marrying their daughter who belongs to a higher caste.

In connection with the case, the police had earlier arrested 14 persons, 12 of whom are members of his wife Avanthi’s family, including her parents Donthireddy Laxma Reddy (54), and Donthireddy Archana (44). It was stated by the police that the accused conspired to kill Hemanth and hired killers to execute their plan.

On Monday, the police arrested Somayala Raju (52), Erukala alias Banapuram Krishna (33), Mohammed Pasha (32), and Byagari Sayanna (48). According to a police press note, Somayala Raju, a close friend of the main accused Guduru Ygender Reddy, was present in all conspiracy meetings and coordinated

Dishing On The Kips Bay Decorator Show House With Two Local Designers

Presented by

The legendary Kips Bay Decorator Show House has been an anticipated social event in the New York design world for the last 47 years. Lucky for us, the charitable home exhibit announced earlier this year that it was launching a location in Dallas. Since then, the local design industry has been abuzz about the details. Which designers would be chosen? How will they put their personal aesthetic stamp on the space? And naturally, we’ve been stalking designers’ social media accounts trying to get a peek since the roster was announced in July.

This week the 11,476-square-foot Preston Hollow manse has finally been unveiled. Every inch of the home was curated and designed by local designers who sourced materials from local showrooms and shops like Jan Showers, The Rug Company, and The Container Store. We asked two local designers, Doniphan Moore and Michelle Nussbaumer, to dish on all the

Meet the Student Designers Behind a Trio of New Blankets Commissioned by Cold Picnic

In June, Cold Picnic founders Phoebe Sung and Peter Buer sent out an open call to Black students pursuing careers in art and design, seeking submissions for a collaborative project. The final result of the project would be a blanket designed by each winner, with all profits going to the artist. Cold Picnic is a textiles and home goods line perhaps best known for their bath mat that is a playful homage to the female form. They had recently taken down their retail site, encouraging users to donate to Black Lives Matter causes instead.

“As owners of a company,” Sung said, “Peter and I believe that whatever personal efforts we put forth towards social justice in our personal lives should be amplified in our brand. Cold Picnic is a tiny brand, but it puts product and content out into the world and because of that, reaches more people, carries more

So, you’ve decided to spruce up your space. Maybe you’re starting small: new throw pillows, getting artwork professionally framed and mounted, or finally starting the garden of your dreams. Before you know it, you’re ready to make an even bigger investment in your living space—a fresh coat of paint, new rugs, overhead lighting fixtures you actually like. And if you own your home? Even bigger projects might be on the horizon.

Interior designer KV Harper has been there. As the founder and principal of KEX Design + Build, she’s worked with clients all over the country to turn houses into forever homes (not to mention her own space in New Orleans’ Seventh Ward).

The Black Interior Designers Network Launches Allyship Program

Black Interior Designers Network

Chances are, you’ve been hearing the term “ally” a lot lately. As the country—and, indeed, the world—sees a new reckoning with systemic racism in the wake of the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and more, there’s been an increased movement for non-Black individuals to better support their Black peers and work to combat racism. In the interior design world, this has sparked many conversations on representation, inclusivity, and equity. Now, one organization wants to make Allyship more official. A month after releasing the “Designer Ally’s How-to,” a list of actionable steps non-Black members of the design community could take to help ease the burden of their Black colleagues, the Black Interior Designers Network is launching the Ally Program, a membership opportunity for supporting the work of the BIDN and its designers.

“My biggest hope for this Ally membership program is that it bridges

3 Designers Reveal the Home Decor Items Worth Splurging On

In partnership with New York School of Interior Design

Any savvy shopper knows that your space doesn’t have to be filled with expensive items to look expensive. However, there are some home decor categories where the splurge is well worth it. A nice design piece can set the look, feel, and tone of a room, adding substance and detail that you can both see and feel and improving your overall mood. But how do you know when to spend vs when to save?

To answer that, we turned to some of the sharpest design eyes we know: alumni from New York School of Interior Design (NYSID). Offering everything from traditional undergraduate and graduate degrees to professional certifications, NYSID is home to some of the brightest minds in the industry.
