Going From Doorway to Wall

I am remodeling 2 spare bedrooms in my house and making them one big bedroom by knocking out the wall between them. This means I will be taking one of the doorways and framing it in to be a wall as I dont need two doors next to each other for the same room. The hallway these doors connect the bedrooms to has wainscoting on it. So if I frame in the doorway and make it a wall, that part of the hallway will just be a sheetrock wall without any wainscoting on it. I can't find any wainscoting to match what is there as it is an old house. What are some ideas of what I can do so that that section of wall in the hallway doesn't look weird?

Can you post pictures of the wainscoting?

Looks like possibly cherry or cedar, maybe tonge and grove. Should not be hard to duplicate. Looks like the door casing ould match the chair rail.
