I received a call from a client a few weeks ago wanting to know if she could add gold accents to her “glam” kitchen.  This client had fashioned her kitchen after Kris Kardashian’s kitchen complete with black and white tile.
 
The client explained the dominant metal in her kitchen was chrome, but she had read that gold was a hot trend right now.
 
I explained that it was absolutely okay to mix metals in the same space.  The key is to have one metal type (chrome) be dominant and only accessorize with other metals (so in our example – gold).
