i don't want a planted tank (at least not yet) but i kinda of want a more natural look but the tank my betta is in now has bright blue rocks with various colored silk plants... so i'm trying to decide if i want to go with more of a reef type feel or a more natural tank with black gravel and maybe a piece of drift wood

Personally, I wouldn't go for reef look with a freshwater tropical fish. It just looks weird.

I live black gravel because it makes your boy's colours pop. What about a reef with black substrate? You could even scatter a few of the blue gravel pebbles over the top of the black, I've seen that in some tanks, looks quite nice, actually! If you go with the reef, you could also potentially re-purpose your colourful silk plants as "seaweed" or pretend anemones...

I also am not a fan of the reef look, but if that's what YOU like, then go for it! It's your tank and you have to look at it ;)
