Gnome and KDE are desktop environments. They provide a suite of different applications that achieve their own kind of user interface that are tailored to many users' needs (yet some are customizable as well should you need or want to tweak anything).

Everything will still work. However gnome applications do not interact with the desktop environment of KDE as well as they would with gnome. The differences will be mainly superficial. You can always remove the gnome applications later and replace them with kde ones if you want.
