Paving colour for driveway - To match or not to match?

Hello Houzz Community,
I hope you are all well.
I have a small dilemma on choosing the correct paving colour for my front driveway and was wondering if I could kindly request your feedback on which one to go for. I have narrowed it down to two.
Firstly, let me start off by saying I have just had the front wall built that is a 1:1 copy of my neighbours wall. See some before and afters below;
As mentioned about, the colour choices for the driveway are down to two - Killyleagh and Cashel, which I have posted a picture of below:
My neighbour already has his driveway completed and he went for Killyleagh, which you can see in the video here - https://streamable.com/1f8mdd
I like how Killyleagh does not clash with the wall colour however, it also looks a bit greyer/duller. Cashel matches but is it too much of the same colour scheme going on?
Given the colour of the wall and the front of the house being rendered in a predominately white with a rich orange segment, which of the two paving options do you think best suits?
UPDATE - CASHEL IS OUT. NEW VOTE IS BETWEEN KILLYLEAGH AND SLATE
Seems like Cashel has been turfed out but there is a little vote off between Slate and Killy.
I have until tomorrow to make that decision but wanted to open the voting again between the two. Here are a couple of better pics of the two:

FRONT HOUSE - DIFFERENT ANGLE
FYI, I will be leaving that front space between the two piers open i.e. no gate. This is because it will allow two cars to get in easily. I will however, be getting the black railings. We also have a Midnight blue door on order. I am contemplating grey window frames but undecided on this yet.
To Slate or to Killy?
Thank you again.
