Color suggestion: Black & Maroon/Garnet with gold accents

Hello all, just wanted to get some opinions on a color scheme before I go down to purchase some paint.

Just about finished with my single speed build and this is what I have so far

Black rims with gold hubs and nipples, all other components are black too (crank, seat post, stem, main cog) may paint the handle bars to match the frame.

Headset and seat post collar are gold.

Thinking about painting the frame maroon/garnet with some gold striping/accents.

How does this sound?
