Installed at this taller height, the character of tongue and groove changes completely and can be used to either hark back to a turn of the century scullery or utility area or conversely to mimic the contemporary interiors found in Scandinavian countries, where use of this height of panelling is widespread.
Found in many homes of the period as well as in Arts and Crafts homes, this square (or sometimes rectangular) panelling is lovely on a single wall to add character and interest to any room. The addition of a plate rack offers decorative opportunities.
Found in as many homes of the Arts and Crafts period as the Edwardian, it is the simplicity of this design which keeps it a firm favourite. It offers a lovely rhythmic pattern which is easy on the eye and works well in both period and more contemporary houses.
ARTS & CRAFTS
This panelling style, comprising of squares sitting atop tall rectangular shapes, is derived from the designs of Mackintosh, amongst others. It looks wonderful in a hallway where a long run can be fitted to show off the lovely, repeating pattern or is equally elegant in a dining room where the addition of a plate rack offers the option to display china, as shown.
HEARTS & CRAFTS
This panelling is essentially our Arts and Crafts wall panelling with the addition of hearts. Typical of the Arts and Crafts period, the addition of the hearts is wonderful in a hallway but equally at home in a playroom or nursery.
DADO HEIGHT WALL PANELLING
Traditionally used in hallways, dado height wall panelling adds the illusion of width to a narrow hallway as well as protecting the lower portion of the wall from the wear and tear of normal family life. Used in dining rooms, it adds an elegant feel, especially when coupled with wallpaper. In a study it gives a feeling of authority and gravitas and looks wonderful as a backdrop for antique furniture.
