how to add brass to a kitchen-mixed with stainless?

I really love this faucet in the bronze color:

To work it into my kitchen...can you help me with design?

Okay, lower cabs are walnut shaker. Upper are white shaker. Backsplash is basic glazed white 3x6 tile with a soft gray grout. Counter is going to be something like white quartz/marble look alike. All appliances are stainless. 36 inch wolf range. The hardware...I am set on hickory hardware studio line in polished nickel. I cannot find a bronze color that has the same profile as these. I want to keep the hardware the polished nickel... to incorporate this bronze faucet with the nickel hardware and stainless appliances?

I am thinking of having the pot filler be bronze as well, like this one.

And then having pendant lights that are brass like these:

So stainless appliances, nickel hardware, brass faucet, pot filler, pendants...would that work?

Any other ideas on how to add brass/incorporate brass into a stainless mix? thanks!

This is the hardware from hickory that i love...eta to say that it does have 2 bronze finishes, but they are both way too dark...I love the look of the nickel:

And, yes, I am using brass and bronze interchangeably. I am sorry. I just mean that pretty color of the trinsic faucet-not shiny yellow brass, not oil rubbed bronze, that inbetween color...

RE: how to add brass to a kitchen-mixed with stainless?

My primary concern would be that the champagne bronze faucet and the (cant remember now) color name of the pot filler are two entirely different colors/metal finishes. In my last kitchen, I had flat black (rasped iron) hardware on cream inset cabinets with stainless appliances (range had brass trim) and my tap and pot filler were both uncoated brass. The lights were ORB because that was the lighting scheme for the entire house. The cabinet hardware was black because all the hardware in the house was black. The faucets were just because I love *real* brass and it looked great.

What if I could coordinate faucet and pot filler? I almost surmise delta will update the pot fillers to include that finish...
