Sometimes certain words or people are  synonymous with one another.  We can think of people like Sonny and Cher; Donny and Marie and things like Peanut Butter and Jelly or Fruits and Vegetables.  With finishing the exterior we can do the exact thing when it comes to Stone and Stucco.  Stone and Stucco can compliment each other in texture, color and over-all appearance.  Some people like to to contrast the two to bring out subtitles while other installers like to bring them together for an overall balanced look.  When done properly Stucco and Stone can be combined to be very effective in an overall presentation.
