To panel or not?

I’m in the process of decorating my living room. I asked the joiner to add a dado rail with the idea that we would add some panelling to the room with moulding in large and small rectangles below and above the dado. I would like to paint the room F&B Green smoke on the chimney breast and alcove walls and the rest in a lighter colour.
Is panelling going to be too much with the different colours too? Or do you think it would look ok? I could do panelling on just the lighter walls but then would that look odd with the dado in the alcoves? Any ideas really appreciated.
