Too Much Black & White?

I know!!
Didn't think I would ever say such a thing... But I am second guessing myself!


What do you think?  Too much black and white? Too graphic?  I am in the middle of making these panels but I couldn't resist and hanging a finished one up.  At first I was a little shocked by how much they popped out, then I went to liking them, and then I starting thinking that 2 panels on both of my windows would be a bit much.




First... No judgment on the condition of my dining room table!
The panels will be on the wall opposite of my DIY Black and White Abstract Art so I like the balance... but???  I have plans to paint my cane barrel chair black and reupholster it in a bold colorful scallop.  I will be reupholstering the other dining chairs that are still gold and maybe adding a different black and white chevron to my white couch.  

So YES to the black and white stripes or NO?
HELP ME OUT!!

Keep going! I think it's too easy to back out when you only see one panel up - when they're all done and hung, the whole room will come together :)

DO IT! It looks awesome. It might be too much if it were a really bold color or pattern, but its not. it's going to look great.

Looks great Tiffany! I think you should finish them.

I like them too! I don't think it's too graphic or to b+w. I love that you have the art opposing the soon to be draperies.

I say yes. I would move the painting that is being hidden by the fig leaf to make that corner look less crowded and busy and then limit the amount of black and white used since you have the chevron pillows, the black and white lamp, the artwork etc.

Looking great! (we do this second guessing thing about our own houses all the time, don't we!)
