    Did the dado and panelling come from the same company? If so, which company was it as I really like the square edged dado. Thanks.

    The dado was supplied and installed by the contractor. We specified the square-edged top cap.

Get in the grooveIf you love the idea of a flamboyant wallpaper like this monkey print, but don’t want to feel like you’re actually entering the jungle, try breaking up the pattern. Here, tongue-and-groove panelling has been added halfway up the walls. The dark grey colour flows on to the slate floor tiles to give a unified overall effect.

‘[Accent colours] can easily be changed depending on the season/fashion/mood. A bold wallpaper is much easier and inexpensive to swap if you change your mind about it.’ Michele Longoni InteriorsGive overlooked spaces a boostIf you have some wall space that needs a boost, try orange! Basic colour theory says you can’t go wrong with the cool/warm combination of blue and orange, as seen in this cute cloakroom; the two shades sit opposite one another on the colour wheel and are, therefore, complementary. Also pair bright orange with muted purple, grey or brown – it’s a great accent for rooms with more sombre colour schemes.See more ways to create a wow cloakroom with wallpaper

Go wild with wallpaperThe ingredients of this cloakroom are fairly traditional. It has an Edwardian-style toilet and wooden wall panelling, but the room is prevented from feeling predictable thanks to the wallpaper. Monkeys against a burnt orange backdrop are guaranteed to rev up even the most conventional of cloakrooms!TELL US…How have you brought tradition up to date in your home?

Contrast panelling with a striking wallpaperHand-painted wallpaper lines the upper half of this cloakroom, while the lower half is finished in painted tongue and groove panelling. This provides visual (and practical) contrast, and keeps the more costly material at eye level, where it will be most appreciated. The skylight brings in natural light from above – a window would have compromised the effect of the wallpaper.

I like the panelling and the use of wallpaper but much too dark. Add a F&B greenish blueish greyish colour to the panels and a much lighter less aggresive wallpaper and we're good to go....
