When adding comfy seating to your fire pit, think about how you can best use each piece year round, then easily add holiday charm with accents. Instead of choosing red or green upholstery, this area was outfitted with modern rocking chairs with rich navy upholstery, a color that can mix with a wide variety of accent colors for seasonal looks.
Pavers can help create fun backyard game spaces. This Minneapolis backyard by Southview Design uses pavers and retaining wall block for a horseshoe pit. The homeowner competes in a horseshoe league and wanted to practice at home. The pavers in the spectator area are aligned in a fan pattern.
When trying to create a rustic look, opt for pavers that appear to be chiseled, such as these irregular-shaped Belgard pavers with the look of flagstone. The blocks used to create the fire pit have a rough-hewn texture.
This midcentury-modern home was remodeled in a way that retained its original character. The driveway, made of concrete pavers and black river stones, is designed to feel more like an entry court than a place to park your car.
