Hi, friends!! During these hot days I am not doing much, except for being a mom to a sick kid and to the other maybe-sick-kid. That sucks!! You know what doesn't suck? Things getting done!! Like work on our fence and porch!! Yeeyy!!
No-grout section... Sorry about the mess...:))
This is a grouted section.....we are debating whether to apply a transparent
finish that would accentuate the colour of the stone...
I love the gold copper stone we chose for the outdoors, and I can't wait till the workers are done!! One more week, they say!! For the terrace, in between the three columns that sustain the roof, we are going to install black wrought iron railings, simple and straight, similar to these:
We are also going to dress the stairs in the same stone, so this look is kind of similar, except that our house has a different finish. Hubby had to be convinced to go with this simple design for the railings, but I am sure it is going to look cool, maybe kind of simple-clean almost industrial look??
Love those railings...

What are your thoughts on stone for the outdoors?? Do you think it only works for a rustic feel, as I've been already told? Or can you see it, like me, in a modern-clean-industrial look?? Do share!!
