India's colorful intricate jewelry, lush interiors, grand architecture -- acclaimed interior designer Sunita Kohli is passionate about all of it. She is best known for designing hotels and for her restoration work on Rashtrapati Bhawan-- once the Viceroy’s House designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and Sir Herbert Baker -- but antique Indian jewelry is a special interest of Kohli's. She will share her knowledge at Emory University's Carlos Museum during a free talk, "Tales of Mughal Jewelry and Great Indian Diamonds," on Monday, April 23 at 7 p.m.
