I'm a fan of silver or dark graymyself. I personnally don't think the contrast created with the white strips and the shaker is that bad. I think it actually shows the shaker off. Black strips belong on light colored s197s IMHO (Lime, White, Silver, Windveil Blue,). But in the end, you should do what you wanna do.
