Synopsis
A city home with natural themes. Digital Communications Consultant Karen Durham-Diggins's reconverted two flats back into an East London Victorian home, and had the front of the house taken off and put back in it's original form.

An extensive traveller, both underwater and on land, an avid scuba diver and walker her home (and garden) is inspired by her love of the coast together with the forest close by. Her admiration of wood stretches even to the tree that uprooted the house and has been utilised as a supporting feature in the front garden. Fruit woods, beech, oak and pine are all mixed to create bespoke furniture and storage, together with salvaged and contemporary pieces, diffused, clear and coloured glass, cloud inspired sculptures, beach combings, seascape oil paintings and underwater photographs combine to make a tranquil light house. A cantilevered extension brings the garden into the dining room enjoyed to the full on summer days with the two walls of bi-fold doors opened. Winter nights are spent in her bright red lounge, enriched by colours centred around a Scottish artist Pam Carter print and her visits to Morocco and Egypt. She lives with her greyhound and although she has no children of her own her 14 fairy god children, three great god children, visiting friends children, nephews and niece get a great deal of use from the playroom.
