Bluestone patios, terraces and walkways made with a variety of shapes have proven to be timeless in beauty and durability. At Lurvey, we are proud of our broad range of shapes, textures, and shades of bluestone; but, if you don’t want blue pavement, the same classic look can be achieved in different color ranges.
If you’re looking for the more traditional “cleft” surface with a naturally textured top, it’s now available in grey, brown, and buff color ranges. For example, take a look at Lurvey’s offering of Smoky Mountain Grey, Harvest Brown, and Prairie Buff Dimensional Stones.
Smoky Mountain offers a terrific range of warm grey tones. These colors are trending when it comes to interior designs for tile and hardwood. Why not continue with that contemporary yet timeless style in your outdoor living space? Harvest Brown presents a beautiful variety of color from light tan to medium brown with occasional quiet purples and lilacs. Prairie Buff is rich in creamy tones with some rust speckled in, along with a hint of lime green. This range blends in wonderfully with surrounding plants and grasses. Also, the stone’s lighter colors have the added benefit of not heating up on those hot sunny days in the summer, making it a great option for a pool surround.
Some stones are sawn on the tops then sandblasted or flamed to bring back some texture and regain friction. This treatment offers crisp/clean lines and generally a more modern appearance. Thermal Bluestone is commonly used to achieve this. Your choices for color no longer have to stop at blue.
Lurvey’s Jerusalem Stardust stone has a terrific range of color from buff to grey to gold. For a more monochromatic look, our Valders collection (Buff, Dovewhite, and Rustic) brings a variety of colors and textures that are all conducive to outdoor applications. Both Jerusalem Stardust and Valders stay relatively comfortable in the summer heat and provide high levels of elegance to a terrace or patio.
All of these stone products have accompanying treads for steps or coping, and many have slabs for outdoor countertops or custom designs. No matter what color, texture, or finish you are looking for, Lurvey has all the natural stone paving products to help you embrace your space!
