I might be able to help you out here. I have some DD 1" forks but they are black. I also have some Deore 4-finger levers, they are all black instead of the standard chrome/black jobbies.

Big fan of the build, I have something very similar...

PM me if interested as I don't swing by that often

Waiting on a Direct Drive fork, I put this RS1 on it. Looks pretty good IMHO! :)

Could use some help chosing the right saddle. Don't mind the black seatpost. Still waiting on a silver Ritchey to arrive. But should I go Turbo white or Specialized black?

Depends on the colour you choose for the fork.
If that is going to be white, go for the white saddle.
I like the black port better then a silver one I think.

If you stick with the Rockshox (which look great by the way :D) I'd go with the Turbo :D

Ha! That is a quandry isn't it!

I saw the rock shox earlier and thought has to be a black saddle, but now you've asked the question and the bike is modelling the alternatives...

I think I'm with Nevadasmith the white turbo looks the best, with the whole picture

It's great having choices
