Sunlight radiates through the Hovel’s huge floor-length window, parallel to the lake’s perimeter. The fireplace immediately catches the visitor’s eye. The Green Man’s visage, which frames the fireplace itself, has been created through the East Anglian art of pargetting. His face shows an array of shades from the painted grey-blue walls. His tongue even forms the hearth! The muted grey of the walls is offset by punches of colour here and there, such as gold diagonals on cushions, and pink threaded patterns on furniture. Stay awhile in this room and relax, until the eye catches an ominous sight in the rafters, which may bring more funereal thoughts.
