Gutter downspouts: contrast or blend

Downspouts look nice when you don't see them. They are utilitarian and should be the color of the surrounding area, not breaking up the architectural lines of the house.
Downspouts (and garage doors) looks better when they blend in with the wall.
Pick a place on the downspout elbow to match the sight line of the siding.
When the downspouts don't blend in, they chop up the house.
