Designer Spotlight:  The Moon Over Joshua Tree

Designer Spotlight: The Moon Over Joshua Tree

We are excited to introduce you to your new favorite desert escape -- The Moon Crest Joshua Tree!  John and Ashley Wagner, hosts of @themoonjoshuatree, have created an inspired and family friendly Airbnb ready to welcome you with everything need to play, rest, and recharge in your desert home away from home.
Set in the scene of a wide open desert sky, our "Surf" Supermatte doors for IKEA cabinets really bring the beauty of the outdoors, in. 

We were excited to chat with John and Ashley and learn more about their  beautiful desert love story...!

MIM:  What do you love about the desert and Joshua Tree?  
John:  We love the raw beauty of the desert. The unfettered views and endless sky make it a blank canvas for you to paint your own vision upon. Joshua Tree in particular is otherworldly as the unique endemic trees among huge boulders make it like nowhere else. You might as well be on the Moon.
MIM: What inspired you to create your own desert oasis and share it with the world as a vacation rental?
John:  Ashley and I fell in love in the high desert and got married at Rimrock Ranch a few years later. As it was so dear to us, we wanted to own a place to always return to and bought a little cabin the following year.  This year, our family has grown with our first child and we needed a place that would be more tailored to young parents with the creature comforts of home, Moon Crest JT. Having a washer/dryer and dishwasher has been essential to having a newborn.
In this kitchen renovation, we really extended the counter space which not only makes it a joy to cook in, but plenty of room for all the extras that come with having a baby.

MIM:  Is there anything about Mix-it Modern offerings, or your overall experience with us that really helped to contribute to making this a successful project for you?


John:  We found Mix-it Modern from an online search and loved that they were a small local business.  The fact that they could beat turnaround times from competitors was essential to our very short renovation schedule.  We stopped by their showroom in Ventura and picked up some swatches which really helped to find the perfect fit for our space. 

Jen was so incredibly helpful throughout our project, ensuring we had all the parts we needed and constantly in touch during the production and delivery.

When the doors and panels arrived we were so glad we went with them as the quality was outstanding. We know they'll look beautiful for many years to come.

We look forward to working with Jen and company for more projects in the future!

MIM:  Anything else you'd like to share about your home, family, or the community of people who've enjoyed time your Joshua Tree home?

John:  The Moon Crest JT is a perfect little getaway for families with a couple of small pups, like us.  It has a fully privacy fenced yard, comfortable furnishings and items like games and a high chair that make traveling with littles so much easier.

We love being hosts and sharing our spaces.  It's really amazing to be a part of so many people's lives by providing a curated space to celebrate milestones like engagements, honeymoons, baby moons and anniversaries or just their first trip to see Joshua Tree.


A big thank you to John and Ashley for sharing your beautiful desert Airbnb with us, and for making Mix-it Modern doors a part of Moon Crest, Joshua Tree!
