I also own another Carré that was a bike shop brand. it has both DT and ST panels under the repaint. So the precedent is there.
Yeah, DT and ST panels I've seen many times. That's like a nice racy look. What I've never seen is DT panel only, combined with a matching contrast headtube.

Of course it's your bike and you can do whatever you want. Frankly I'll wager it's going to look awesome no matter what you pick. You are sticking to the plum purple as the main color, right?
