DIY: Stripes or Chevron?

I've recently taken the BIG plunge and moved in with my boyfriend, Joshua, in Detroit, MI! BUT he is already being moved to Kentucky in the very near future, where I will be following close behind in hopes of having better luck with the job market there. He has decided renting a house is more suitable with our current situation of never knowing when we will be moved, so the house hunt begins. This exciting new adventure of moving into our first actually house rather than apartments, has me excited about finally being able to paint!

I've been Pinterest-ing(pretty sure I just made that into the verb that it is not) like a mad women trying to find everything from painting tips to paint ideas! I am currently on a stripes or chevron kick. Josh will of course have the final say, but he says I can do the painting (which I love).

I love the colors of this wall!

I am possibly the least decisive person to grace this Earth, so deciding between not only chevron on stripes, but then what kind of chevron, what color, what wall, what room, it all sends my head spinning and my anxiety rising. And this is why Josh gets the final say!

I adore these colors

We are almost completely set on black and tan stripes on one accent wall
I think this look is so classy! And will look great with our furniture!

Now my next question was how the heck am I everrr going to pull off either putting chevron or even the stripes on the wall without the lines looking I googled and googled and searched DIY blogs and the solution...Frog Tape. That's the company name, but their heavenly product is called ShapeTape. The website includes instructional videos on every possible step and ideas on colors and designs (which my indecisiveness loves). 

This was move in weekend so excuse the mess, but this is our current living room, I think black and tan to match the carpet with either a chevron or stripe pattern would look perfect on an accent wall in our new home! Pictures will follow as we transform our first home!
