As many of you will already know, I don’t live in London like most of the other design and interiors bloggers that I know. I live just outside Dartmouth in South Devon, which is the most beautiful rural location and I absolutely love living here. Admittedly I do miss out on a lot of the action as I can’t get to London as quickly or as easily as I’d like, but I still wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. Those of you who have been to Dartmouth will surely understand this and those of you who haven’t…what are you waiting for?
Anyway, I used to feel a bit down about missing out on the London-centric design scene, until I realised what great talent there is locally here in Devon. I am now super excited about discovering all the awesome designers, makers and craftsman that are based in this area of the country and I will be featuring more of them here on the blog in the future. One company that I discovered last Summer is Young & Norgate and I was lucky enough to attend an open studio event at their workshop in Budleigh Salterton. There I met Dave Young, who is one half of the talented design duo, along with Ross Norgate. Dave was kind enough to show me round the workshop and agreed to take part in an interview for us. I absolutely love the work of these guys as I am sure you will too. Anyway, read on to hear what Dave has to say.
