You have wallpaper in your bathroom now ... are you looking to do the same in the new bathroom ? With your love of birds Sanderson birds of paradise would work well above the panelling in a soft earthy brown on an Ivory background ( I have a sample ) But this picture has panelling and wallpaper .I think the wood effect ivory floor planks you had the samples of would work well. Then soften with a Sanderson rug in the middle . When the floor is one level think you will surprised how much bigger and more open it will feel.
Panelling, ignore colour and wallpaper
