There is no more famous zip code than 90210. The fi ve-digit combination instantly conjures up gilded images of palm tree-lined boulevards, luxury mansions, chic art galleries and wealthy, attractive people enjoying everything from champagne brunches to world-class shopping on Rodeo Drive. Roxy Sowlaty, a Beverly Hills-based interior designer and star of E!’s “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills,” represents the next generation of Beverly Hills: young, rich, beautiful, stylish and fi ercely entrepreneurial. No doubt, the 20-something Beverly Hills native fi nds plenty of cultural stimulation in and around the city to keep her mind moving and creativity fl owing. “I can’t say enough wonderful things about this city. Not only is it so beautiful, eternally 75 degrees and full of opportunity, but it is also extremely inspiring, as it is a city built on the creativity of the entertainment and art worlds.” 

We caught up with Sowlaty and asked her to share some of her favorite local haute spots for everything from luxe home furnishings to pieces for the garden.

MODERN RUGS LA 

“My go-to place for rugs! They have a huge selection of styles and price ranges that can make any client/shopper happy. The owner is a doll and so easygoing. Buying a rug can be difficult, and it takes time to know if a rug works or not. The owner, Sasha, is so kind, he allows clients to use the rug for a week to test it out to make sure it’s the right purchase, and I appreciate that tremendously!”
