Copper Sink + Chrome Fixtures? What would you do?

10 years ago

Our soon-to-be built kitchen will have white shaker cabinets and our existing white appliances, with light oak hardwood floors.

I've decided I want green marble (serpentine) counters - we have laminate that mimics green marble now, and so everything we have already matches it and I like it, even if it's out of style.

So I bought a copper apron-front sink from Home Depot that I think will look fabulous with dark green counters...only to realize that I have also bought chrome-accented pendants on sale at Restoration Hardware.

The rest of the house is a mix of the original 1941 aged brass hardware and brushed nickel.

What should I do about the lights? As irrational as it is, I hate to return them because I got a really great deal ($79 each, now back to $239). The pendants will not be over the sink, they will be over the center island/table.

I also like a chrome faucet from Chicago Faucets, which of course does not make faucets in other colors.
