Mixing metal finishes: gorgeous inspiration


So, I have a conundrum in my master bath. I want to change our light fixtures, but I don’t want the light fixtures to match the finish of our faucets and towel racks. I spent some time looking for inspiring ways to mix metal finishes this afternoon, and turns out that it actually makes a space look better balanced when there is a mix of finishes. Below are some of my favorite examples:

This bathroom is closest to ours.  Our faucets pretty much look just like that, our vanity knobs are dark, and I want to get light fixtures with a chrome finish.  Looks pretty good to me!
Nickel finish faucets look nice with the dark finish of the sconces and mirror frames.

Love the gold and chrome here.

One challenge I’m having is picking a fixture type for our bathroom ceiling.  The ceiling in our bath is very high, and the fixture there now is more like a foyer light, and very tuscan looking, which just isn’t our style.  Here are some fixtures types I’m considering.

I like semi-flush, but with the fixture so high up would it provide enough light?

I also like this style pendant, and it is tall enough to be suitable for a high ceiling.

I really like this option.

I really like these pendants, but I would need something wider.

A clean and simple chandelier could work too.
What style fixture would you use for a bathroom with a very high ceiling?
