Mixing matte bronze light fixture w/satin nickel cabinet hardware

I'm not a mixy matchy person at all. But does anyone see a style issue in using a pendant lamp that has a matte bronze fixture-top and rod (white milkglass shade) with cabinetry that has satin nickel pulls? Further, would the existence of satin nickel pulls make you shy away from a chrome faucet or not at all? Cabinets are old and white, walls nearly so, floors pretty and dark wood, countertops the palest lemon matte tile so they blend in really well with the white.

The satin nickel pulls are pretty small and discreet, and the lamp I had in mind is this, to keep it nonmodern looking:

My rationale is that the matte bronze is going to look antiquey and inobtrusive and is about the same color as the wood floor. I don't think that fixture and shade would have the same charm if I went satin nickel with the finish.

(Kitchenette table is off-white with off-white French country chairs.)
