    No, if money was not an issue, I'd choose natural looking stone.

    I love them but not sure if I would tire of them. I would use a few but not as many as the one pic has. That is just too much.

    Personally the only one I truly like is the on point squares
    (the red tile in the group of 4 colors).
    Than I would only use it as a border around a field of plain tiles.

    There is a Mfg rep (he works out of our offices), and this is one
    of the NEW Mfg he reps for. These tiles go for about $25 sq ft
    (I think that is what he told me last week).

    Many patios are extensions of the interior just as many bring the outside in. I have a friend who has tiles in different designs and they look like a quilt on a bed. Her design has 2 different borders. It's quite pretty but not really that busy. She is very artsy. She and her husband bought plain pavers and used paint for concrete/cement, then did their own design.

    Same here, nothing fancy.
    We have a covered patio with a concrete slab. It measures 12' x 20'. We do want to flagstone pavers on the front sidewalk leading to the front door someday.

    Instead of using them all over, I would try to arrange them to appear as a rug under a seating area.

    Yes this! It is very pretty but I would not like it for flooring.

    I totally agree........

    Sure, but not all. A few designs spaced nicely would be very cool.

    They are pretty but they look like more mopping to me.

    A Spanish friend (amigo) of mine put in new back patio, driveway and sidewalk this summer. He is doing the work himself, so it took all summer. This evening I drove past his house and noticed the sidewalk is now laid. There is a large star in each large square of sidewalk, I think about 4 or 5 of them from the street to the house. What I saw was very beautiful, but I just drove by and didn't get a close look. Since the stars seemed to be all alike, I thought it was very nice.

    If money were not an issue I would LOVE them for a patio and I would love the pool shown too.
