So I'm getting my travertine installed, we opted for the french pattern. The installer showed me pictures of the installation he did where he didn't quite follow the traditional french patter, but instead, he staggered the stones so in the end, it looks "random but also diagonal". I liked it and said, yea lets do that. Not sure if I made the right decision, this is how its tunring out. Also my wife noticed a slight color difference from the coping and the deck. Ugh, please tell me we're over thinking it. I can't go back to the installer and tell them to re do it as I agreed to the pattern, unless I pay some good $$$ to remove it and start over. Or, start the traditional french patter from this row.
