    Stone choice down to two

    We have chosen our coping and narrowing down the stone choice. quite the adventure getting this far. Time is running short.
    Our coping is Walnut Travertine. The two stone choices are Falcon Mist and Pinewood Country Ledge. We will have grout for both stones. Opinions?

    These pictures were taken on a cloudy day.


    Here is the coping on a pallet of the Falcon Mist in the yard.


    Here is the wall board of the Falcon Mist.


    Here is a wall of the Pinewood and the coping on top.


    Here is another shot of the Pinewood with coping.

    Re: Stone choice down to two

    Oops, I'm odd man out! I like the Pinewood.

    Samples vary soooo much which sometimes shoots down my reasons for a choice. I actually thought the first 2 photos were of different stone styles...

    Here are my reasons for the Pinewood :
    1. I like the smaller stones
    2. I like the more muted colors (my stone/tile choices are soooo muted and neutral, but it's what I like)
    3. I like the contrast between the coping and the Pinewood.

    But even more important to me would be the answer to: Which one looks better with your surroundings?

    Best of luck! Suz.

    Considering your coping, I think the pinewood matches a bit better to be honest.
