Should flagstone match Ledger-stone?

My wife and I choose our flagstone this week, now we need to pick a ledger stone. My question is, should they be the same or match. I believe we are going to use a stacked stone.

Our flagstone coping is mesquite charcoal whiCh has grays and silver in it. The ledger samples I saw either matched very cloche or contrasted. What is the norm or what does anyone suggest.

I'm color blind so its very tough for me. Therefore the final decision will be with my wife.

Generally, a complimentary contrasting stone is needed. Matches are nearly impossible to attain.

That is what i was thinking. I think we are going to go with autumn rose from east west stone.
Can the ledger panels be used in a free form pool and spa with curves in it.
