I ever wished a house like those, but the clock penthouse is really incredible for the through clock around.
Instead of using hood in this salloon i would prefer a 'porcelanato ceramic very big shinning white plates' all over. I don't like much hood inside a house. Just for some very old objects like a Lamp or old Clock for contrast, nothing more. Even if has few doors, could be in hard plastic white or alumninum. Hood brings much insects and do not hold good for ever.
