Adding a Control Color to Boston Blend

Adding a Control Color to Boston Blend

A customer writes…

In your showroom you have a fireplace (see below), with a lot more tan colors than the Boston blend in the other samples. Is this random based on when you get the stone, up to the mason to pick and choose stones, or something else?

If you would like your Boston Blend to be either more tan or more gray, we suggest adding a control color. The control color could be Greenwich Gray or Colonial Tan, which would be mixed in to “push” the color to your desired design aesthetic. An alternative method is to order extra stone beyond the normal 15% waste and instruct your mason to favor tan or gray stones in the Boston Blend mix.
