So it doesn't clash with the stainless steel?

OnlineShop, I have brass and steel combined in my bathrooms. It looks great, even combined in the same fixtures. I think the key is to have both throughout the room, not just add brass to one new fixture because it's trendy. We built our home back when brass was considered classic and when I wanted to add a ceiling fan a couple of years ago to a great room that had pendant lights with long brass stems, as well as brass knobs on the cabinets. I was very limited in what I could find in brass. Fortunately I found one that went well with the lights. Adding steel, or any other finish, wouldn't have looked good because that would have been the only different finish in the room. And if you're talking about stainless steel appliances, most of ours are white but that wasn't available when we recently replaced our dishwasher. It's stainless and looks just fine with the brass in the room. The brass is shiny and the stainless is a brushed look so the completely different finish works. As I replace the other appliances, I think the brushed stainless throughout will look fine. I don't anticipate needing to change out the brass.

To me - EVERYTHING except stainless steel restaurant style kitchens clash with stainless steel appliances! Guess that's why there are panel doors for refrigerators - freezers and Auto body paint shops that will do a great job putting the colour you want on your appliances.
