Color of wood for accent wall

We are trying to warmup our living room space with a wood accent wall. All the house has light oak trim and cabinets. We were going for a contrast type of look. Planned to take the boards all the way up the wall and install darker mantle. We have a lot of dark furniture in the house to help tie it all together. Is this wood too dark against the light oak cabinetry? The wall was painted dark just to have a background for any cracks between wood. Second pic is of adjoining kitchen and to show flooring. Thoughts are appreciated.
