Welcome to the RD Edit!

This is our space to come together and discuss all things design. We are so glad we get to share our thoughts with you.


Every design firm strives to find their niche; to provide their customers that one thing that sets them apart from the rest. For Ridgecrest, it's our custom metal cabinetry. And what makes it even more special is that it's fabricated in-house by our own team.

This week, we're talking about new trends that designers are leaning towards. We all know that trends come and go, and in recent years we've seen a lot of white walls, white bedding, white tile, new furniture, and a lot of clean lines overall. However, in recent months we've started to see more wallpaper, darker walls, mixed patterns, and more previously loved furniture. This weeks newsletter is going to dive into a few traits we see in maximalist designs.
