Sharnel first met Adam in 2018 when his company Dorset Bottega Bespoke Spaces was engaged to design and build a grand entrance and frontage for her acreage home in Gumdale. Adam shared her creative vision and had the skills and passion to bring it to fruition.
During their first project together, they discovered a mutual love of all things botanical and, after a few years of creating and collaborating on projects together they decided to make their partnership official, and Flourish by Dorset Bottega was born.
Together they, along with Adam’s wife, Kristn, are a force to be reckoned with after their first collaboration for Mother’s Day 2020 sold out within a week.
Their own passion and integrity ensure they will only ever deliver high quality, meaningful products to market, products that they themselves proudly use in their own homes.
Sharnel lives on acreage with her husband, two children and two chocolate Labradors in Gumdale, Brisbane.
With a strong belief that everything in your home should be beautiful as well as practical, Sharnel is key in sourcing each product for Flourish.
She has a love for gardening, interiors, travelling, photography, cooking and flower arranging. With a firm belief that “love is in the details” Sharnel has over time created a warm and beautiful home for her family and friends to gather and enjoy.
Adam is an award-winning homewares product designer, furniture maker and landscape gardener.
He is inspired by people who passionately create beautiful spaces both inside and out and works tirelessly for his clients to create beauty. Often described as obsessive it’s this focus that allows him to create without compromise.
With the heart of a lion and the soul of a hippy his special place is in the garden listening to classical music.
Adam dares to dream and encourages other to follow their own.
Kristn is married to Adam and they live on acreage with their three children.
With 25 years of corporate administration under her belt, Kristn now manages the day to day running of the Flourish office. However, possibly her greatest challenge is wrangling her two creative co-workers to meet their deadlines.
