Naturally find the satin and wrought iron complement each other but the brass always overwhelms the space IMO. Mixing needs to be done tastefully or otherwise you get mixed messages in the room, which begins to take away.

@khhhch, look again, as brass has caught on in the past few years, more and more vendors are offering it in different finishes from unlacquered to antiqued. I was shopping for brass and matte black myself 18 months ago and have noticed a lot more options in both of those finishes today than I did then. You can always shop for items in the Houzz shop by finish (once you get into the category you want, like kitchen faucets or cabinet hardware, it's a filter at the top of the screen) For example, there is a good selection of brass faucets right now:

Copper isn't as easy to find right now, I feel like I see it more on the sink itself than on faucets, but there is still a good selection here:

Thanks for sharing Becky.

Been mixing metals for years and it has alway been a challange to convince customers that it's ok - the belive they all need to match.

So, we started doing it in our own showroom and... - they're going for it!
