Need help with light fixture selections

We are in the process of selecting light fixtures for our new home. The salesman at the store suggested that the breakfast room light and the light over the island should match. Same with the foyer/entry light with the dining room. I don't like the idea of them matching. I do intend to stay in the same color family: dark bronze. So will that be ok?

Hi shondam! Hope you are having a great day. To answer your question -- the light fixtures do not need to match. Of course, they can match and look fabulous but they don't have to match. I've attached some photos for you to see matching, same family, & non-matching examples. Disclaimer :) -- many of the photos have items that we sell & I've identified the names of the collections for you.

Elba collection / NonMatching:
Southlake TX kitchen remodeling
Kitchen Design Remodeling Southlake TX

Fascination collection / Same Family:
Carlton Condo

Vitalia collection/ Matching:
Waukesha Kitchen Remodel

Alita collection/Non-Matching (see pendant lights v. foyer chandelier):
Knot On Call

Non-matching (though still ceiling fans)
Family room remodel

Hope that helps!
