So, you bought two other, plain canvases and were going to either paint or craft something on them?

I love your chevron pattern and would either frame it (silver, possibly) or place trim molding around it.

Don't know if your heart's set on a triptych. Those are very large canvases. Would all 3 exhaust the entire wall?

What if you painted or crafted your other canvases and spaced them over your headboard. That would allow you to hang the chevron on another, opposite wall, allowing you to enjoy it from your vantage point, i.e. in bed?

Just a thought - otherwise, it's normally behind you. Plus, it might highlight your chevron instead of making it merely one of a grouping.

Alternatively, if you're going with the triptych, I guess the question is monochromatic or contrasting, correct? Both can work - depends on your overall goal(s) for the room, IMHO.

Good luck!

P.S. Room photos and a description of your decorating plans/goals might help.
