It is a mix of two different stones from Tennessee - Apple Orchard and Tennessee Field. Apple Orchard has peach and gold tones with some brown. Tennessee Field are the gray tones.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Grasso says that the exterior of the house conceals the new traditional interior, so there's an element of surprise upon entry and exploration of each room. The clients wanted their house to "fit comfortably" into the traditional neighborhood.

I love 99% of this entire house!!! That's rare. Not loving the busy foyer floor and tile backs on the stairs but the rest is just amazing. Maybe if the stairs were plain, I'd like the foyer floor more. It's a cool floor look but just too much going on. Might be great in a dining room with a frame around it so it takes the place of a rug.
