house with split personality- how to choose flooring for patio?

hello houzzer friends- after hours of houzzing i realized that my house suffers a split personality- it has a english country garden, mediteranean exterior- red tiled roof, stone exterior, but the inside in modern- big windows, 2 story ceilings and greyish marble flooring. i need to choose patio flooring- the patio is directly off the living room and dining room. do i go with modern sleek in greys or various sizes of stone in the colors of exterior of the house? we live in a climate where entertaining outside is possible most months of the year. thank you for your help - i'm inspired by you all

This may be your chance to bring the inside, out !! Can you follow through with the interior style of grey marble flooring ? Add touches of the garden too with terracotta pots of fragrant plants and herbs maybe ?!

actually- the idea of inside out- has worked! armed with this vision- i just came back from having chosen 4 various sized stones of the same type as the exterior of the house,(limestone) - but cut for patio flooring, and will "randomly" pull out some of them, and add, in the same finish as the limestone,but the color and type of the interior flooring- travertine) so the outside will echo the inside.
also, when budget allows, we will create an outdoor fireplace - our renovator is magical- again combining the indoor floors tone with the exterior house wall stone.
you all are such a support- thank you and i will send pics next month, our "due date"
