Mixing two metals that are in the same color family but have different undertonessheens for example the combination of brushed nickel chrome or the combination of shiny brass brushed gold is usually going to look like you tried to match your metals but failed. I might suggest looking at a soft matte black instead of the oil rubbed bronze as it can start to look a but dated these days.
Mixing fixture brands One word of caution.
Mixing chrome and black in bathroom. Yup you can mix as long as you repeat it. This finish has a reflective shiny appearance and a silver color. Lastly this bathroom by Mindy Gayer with brass as the dominant nickel as the supporting and black.

And again see how the brushed nickel bathtub and sink faucets do pair with brass hardware sconces and black mirrors and shower frame. But just know black hardware is harder to keep clean. Polished Chrome is the most popular finish on the market and its affordable.
