About Jennifer Warren-Gash
Where do you live?
I live in Alaro, Mallorca.
How would you describe yourself with five words?
Professional, adventurous, confident, motivated and passionate.
What are your main interests and hobbies?
Travelling, wine and food. Working, yes I like working! I like to keep busy and have new challenges. I also love spending time in the tropics.
Creating special Outdoor Living Areas
What is your current profession?
I am a designer and consultant for outdoor living projects. My company is Mashamba Design. I work with clients who want to create something special for their terraces, patios, pool areas, chill-out areas. I advise on the design, planning and installation for their terrace and outdoor living areas.
What have you studied or worked as before?
When I was living in the States, I started my own entertainment magazine, focused on connecting concerts, events, festivals, etc. for the smaller towns in the area. This was before the internet was a big thing, so people were really lacking a way to know what was going on in the surrounding area.
What do you love most about your job?
The challenge of coming up with a great design for each different project. But what I love even more is the moment when a project is completed after watching it evolve from an idea and concept into a final reality!
What fascinates you about terrace design?
I find it fascinating how undervalued and overlooked the outdoor living areas in Mallorca are. People move here to spend more time outside, yet oftentimes the outdoor living areas are the last thing they think about while planning a renovation project. I hope to change that way of thinking! Mashamba Design is dedicated to creating something special for any space, large or small.
Current Projects and future Dreams
Can you tell us more about your current projects?
I just finished a fantastic project in the north of Mallorca with sweeping views across Colonia de St. Pere. The client has spared no expense on plant pots and furnishings. Above all, this project had a lot of colour and textures in the mix to reflect the views. Turquoises mixed with a more neutral pallet create an ambiance inspired by the Mediterranean, but it’s elegant and refined at the same time.
Where do you see yourself in the future, what would you like to accomplish?
I just turned 40 in October, which at the moment feels like a new energy. And maybe even a fresh start to a new chapter of life. Right now, I am really focused on growing and establishing Mashamba Design as a brand that people start to recognise and associate with luxurious and elegant outdoor living projects. Furthermore, I would really like to perfect a signature style over the next few years. And also see the business grow and become successful. This is what I plan to be doing for the rest of my working career, so I also want to enjoy the journey along the way.
