Basic earth-tones in grays and golds match stone well. It's hard to say without knowing what your stone looks like.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

AFTER: Reinforcing the mezzanine and adding a sturdy steel railing created a great spot for a communal table, which now sits above a small music room. Since the home's foundation was built so long ago, Santalla had to accept the fact that the home had an illogical layout, born out of centuries of additions. "The way the house was used then is just not the way we would use it today," Santalla says. "We had to create new functions for all of the existing rooms."

"A former stable now used for music room and entertaining space. Recently renovated, parts of this in-town home in Rasteau, France are 800 years old." I love the look, the history, and the way the music area is set into its own space yet not isolated.
