    If money was NOT an inssue....

    Would you have your patio designed using these pavers?

    Louise - Ya-ya to Zachary April 13 2015. I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world. Also collect handmade pincushions, sewing/quilting themed fabrics, and fabric in general.

    I think it would be too busy for a patio. I like stone, but with a natural look.

    I would probably use mostly plain ones and then use a few with a printed design randomly. I guess when too many have a picture on them they don't pop.

    No, I like a pattern made out of different tiles rather than a pattern on a tile.

    Too fancy for me. I prefer an uncomplicated look.

    I would choose plain ones and use them to create any design.

    No, I don't think it looks outdoorsy and I think I'd quickly tire of it.

    No. We just replaced our old patio this spring with simple, no fuss poured concrete. I love the clean look. Plus...IF you want to sell your house....a quilty design may be a deterrent to buyers. Keep it simple. Pavers are fine. But use the same design throughout. Our quilt obsession is not always appreciated.

    my 2 cents.

    A little too busy for my taste. I would prefer a quilting pattern layout.

    a few ,yes.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    sure! I watch a lot of Italian shows and the tile floors in buildings are to "die" for.

    I really like the last photo of the stones in the neutral color. I would love to have that look on my back porch and around the pool.

    No, I think I would get tired of it before long.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Oh yeah! My smallish patio would look great in those, and it would discretely indulge my love of somewhat-controlled scrappy.

    I have pretty simple taste and like things more like nature intended them so if I had the money or choice, I would still stick with the plain ones. LOL
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I'd use some for a border or just the four corners.

    If it looked like Victorian terratso tiling I think it would be great. Lots of houses in Oz have verandahs covered in this sort of tiling. They look great, are cool especially with water thrown on them in the very hot weather. Very easy to clean.

    Very nice looking, BUT I would get very tired of looking at it all the time. Plain pavers work for me. Maybe use them as an edging or a small focal point, but not all over. At least not for me.

    I would install a compass rose in pavers without a problem.

    I think I would tire of it after a while, but it does look nice.

    For some reason I feel like they're suitable for an indoor/outdoor room, like a sun room. They don't feel "outdoorsy" to me - I think I prefer more natural looking stones on the ground outside, like large flagstone or slate pavers.

    We had a large concrete patio poured at our old house, and we had them lightly stamp the concrete with these very subtle fossil shapes and add some small ripples and slightly irregular edges to make it look more like stone - that was my favorite patio ever. It was all very subtle but "felt" more natural than concrete usually does. I'd like to do the same at my "new" house but there's already a (standard) concrete pad in the way.
