Is It Okay To Mix & Match Metals In A Room?

Good Questions

Q: I want to buy a new coffee table for my formal living room but am torn between a few that are made of different metals. I feel like the metal I choose for the coffee table will dictate what other metals I have in the room (cabinet knobs, drapery rods, picture frames, mirror frame, etc.). I was wondering whether it's okay to mix metals in a room or if it's best to stick with one kind (silver or gold, etc)? How should one decide which metal(s) to use in a room? Which pieces should coordinate?
