Vote - What color knobs?

I recently replaced my range and it came with an extra set of knobs - sort of a french blue color. Both are lovely and so I could use some help deciding which ones to use. Please offer up your two cents... The stainless knobs are brushed and show fingerprints. The blue ones are slightly textured (think vintage zenith radio finish). They are both lovely and both fit well in my kitchen.


So... which will it be blue or silver?

I'm a guy, so shiny metal things are a plus. Besides, the blue knobs clash with the green tiles on the back splash.

The blue doesn't match the backsplash but it does match the blue in the kitchen window. This is an old stained glass panel - placed here to keep my weird neighbor from peering in from over the fence (that he has to get on a ladder to do...)

Why not use both, and change them out when the mood strikes?

Love the stove!

Blue. It's a personal thing.I love the vintage look.

With the green tiles in the back.I can see a beautiful remodeled country kitchen.Any color counter top kitchen appliance, canisters would look very sharp with your kitchen.Vintage plad (sp) looking dishtowels are making a comeback.

Just what I was going to say!
I love your cool window solution to your weird neighbor. Why do you have three clocks?

It looks to me like the labels under the clocks say Taipei, Richland and Paris. Don't know the significance
