I have the same preference order, never had any real desire for venomous. Red tail boas are my favorite handling snake, most content to hang out with a chair or couch potato on the net or watching tv. Easier to breed too, live young, no eggs to incubate.
Pythons are beautiful, and some have awesome dispositions too, but not quite the same calm energy as boas. Never did care for bp's, but loving my carpet.
Colubrids are great for wide color/pattern variety, often easier to maintain and most often much less $ than other types.
