I had a similar idea, xcept I always wanted to paint my calipers a metallic color with a lot of shine. Haven't searched if anyone has done it to TT or LS breaks yet, but I think it would look great.
I'm sure you can buy a high end bbk with in metallic colors though.

Powder coat and then you can wipe clean forever, super easy cleanup. Otherwise, you can sand and polish and should look almost as good but they'll oxidize again and again.
