    Paver decking dilemma

    Are deck, 400 sq ft, will be pavers. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations on the type we should go with for our pool. We have a red brick patio that will touch up to the deck,our coping is Oklahoma flagstone, the spa will have off white flagstone brick.I am needing some help with:
    1) do we go with larger pavers to make the deck appear larger or go with smaller pavers as the area is only 400'
    2) do you try to match the brick color and contrast the coping and spa or do you contrast the brick and use a paver that blends with the coping and spa

    I would try to make the flagstone and paver deck blend together. You dont want to introduce more colors. Pick a color paver that matches the flagstone but blends with the red brick.

    Or you can always save up and replace the red brick at a later day.

    We have a grey herringbone pattern paver patio and OK flagstone. We chose a almond / Walnut stamped concrete pattern.

    If anyone has any pictures of a pool with paver decking, I'd love to see them. We now have our coping and are trying to decide what type and color of pavers to use.
    Here is a picture of the pool with the coping. The deck will be on the left side of this picture from behind the spa to about where I was standing while taking the picture. It will touch up against the red brick on the back patio.

    Here is the Mega Arbel installed. Not sure if it had been color enhanced and sealed yet in that picture. We also have Oklahoma flagstone coping.

    I wasn't overly impressed with any of the choices for pavers, so I put the decision on the wife (just in case we don't like it). We went with the Belgard, Dublin Cobble, in Harvest Blend:
